The fourth round will be the last one before the national team games (Portugal play Spain in a private match, before facing France and Sweden in defense of the League of Nations title). Sunday, promises to be remarkable for the Algarve teams, since Farense goes to Luz and Portimonense receives the Alcochete club. The aim of the Algarvians will be to make a joke before this international break.
Scoring against the big two in Lisbon is already difficult in normal times, but in fact, due to the latest performances and results, any point won promises to be a feat. It's simple, looking for the best bookmakers legal aspects, present in the Sportytrader classification (reference site that evaluates this market), Lisbon's favoritism is quite evident.
Farense is the first to enter the field, but is last classified, without points in two matches, and goes to the home of the first, Benfica, who shares the same 6 points as FC Porto. It's simple, the best odds for a Farense victory at Estádio da Luz are set at 23 at Betway, according to the odds comparison, from the aforementioned Sporytrader. Indeed, Benfica de JJ is growing and has already shown great quality.
These two emblems already met in the pre-season, with the Eagles winning 5-1. The last official match also took place in Lisbon, in March 2002, and Benfica had already scored 5 goals, with no answer. It will be difficult for this year's promoted, for a Benfica that aims for big goals this season.
In turn, Portimonense has more chances against Sporting, since in addition to receiving the game, they also receive a humiliated Lion, after a defeat by 1-4 against the Austrians of LASK, in the middle of Alvalade, in the playoff that gave access to the Europa League group stage! Wounded in the soul, Sporting needs to get up quickly, and Ruben Amorim will have to find the formula to beat a Portimonense determined to take advantage of the situation.
The last victory of the Alvinegros against the lions, happened about 2 years ago, in Portimão by 4 to 2. At the time, Manafá, Nakajima (2) and João Carlos gave form to a great exhibition, which in Paulo Sérgio's men have chances to reissue, going against the best odds (4.03 for the win).
