Pacos host Sporting in Portuguese action tonight with both sides coming off poor performances but the difference being Pacos pick up points while Sporting keep suffering losses.
Pacos Ferreira v Sporting Lisbon
Pacos Ferreira host Lisbon at the Estadio da Mata Real and will want to pick up as many points as possible in order to secure survival quickly. They had plenty of luck in the last round when they got all 3 points against Guimaraes (2-1), as their opponents were much better and hit the post twice. Goalkeeper Coelho is doubtful, while right back Baiano has served his suspension.
Sporting Lisbon suffered another defeat on Tuesday as they went down 1-4 on home soil against Benfica and were knocked out of the League Cup. It’s their fourth loss on the trot in all competitions and the climate within the dressing room is not good. They desperately need to win tonight but the real question is whether they actually can. Zoao Pereira is suspended, midfielder Veloso is injured, while winger Izmailov is ruled out.
