Sporting is having dificult times. The President, the coach and André Carrillo are in a real "war".
The President wants that Carrillo signs a new contract, otherwise he will not play in Sporting anymore. (it's not oficial that the President banned the player, but Its what I see.)
The coach want's to use his best player but he can't. Before the match against Lokomotiv (that sporting lost at home by 1-3) the coach said that he will use carrillo in the match, but Carrillo didn't played and saw the match from the stand.
The player wants a better contract, or he can go to other club for free in January.
So the things are a bit "on fire" in Sporting, and If Jesus (sporting's coach) can't use carrillo, it's an huge set back to Sporting.
Nacional is a good team in Portugal. They always fight to europa league, and this year it won't be diferent.
In the first 4 matches they got 2 wins (at home) and 2 losts by 1 goal (as away). They have a good team, and I believe that in the end they will be in the top 8 teams in Portugal.
In the H2H Sporting got more wins, but To see a win by 3 or more goals we have to get back to 2008, and before that, only in 2007, and this were the only 2 times in the history.
So With these problems in Sporting, I don't see them geting a huge win. They could get a 1-0 win, or something like that, but I believe that this is a great bet!
