Sporting Lisbon vs Academica by 20legend
Sporting is on a very good row with 5-0-1 in their last six games. Their goal difference is 11-4 in these six games, and they are aiming for the 3rd place which gives Champions League Qualification. Sporting are 6 points behin Braga who has the 3rd place, so Sporting has no other option than to get three points here and cut the distance into three points.
Academica have been struggling all season, and are in the relegation zone with 5-8-14 this season. They have only got 0-1-5 in their last six games, scored 3 goals and conceded 8 goals. Academica are one point behind Feirense who has the last safe spot. With a draw today, they can go past Feirense.
I think that Sporting will win this. Their motivation to reach out in Europe and play in the best club-tournament in the world. Sporting also have a much better group of players, and they play at home were they got 10-2-1 this season. They also got 27-6 in goal difference, so they don't allow their opponents many chances. Academica have 2-4-7 and 13-23 away from home, but they have 0-3-3 in their last six away games. If Sporting want to play in Europe next season, they must win this one for sure. My pick will be Sporting to win.
