Benfica vs Sporting odds


Odds correct as of 16:00 on November 09

After a disastrous start to the season that saw them lose 3-2 to Boavista on the opening day despite leading in the 89th minute, Benfica have picked things up since that game, winning eight and drawing one of their next nine league games. The defending champions will be hoping to move back to the top of the table with a win in the first Derby de Lisboa of the campaign and end rivals Sporting’s unbeaten start to the season.

Ruben Amorim’s side currently sit in pole position with 28 points from a possible 30, with nine wins and a single draw from their opening 10 matches of 2022/23, conceding just nine goals so far. After finishing fourth and a whopping 13 points behind their rivals last season, the 2020/21 champions are fired up and ready to reclaim their crown after a disappointing campaign last term.

As well as keeping it tight at the back, Sporting are also the second-highest goalscorers in the division behind Braga, with new signing Viktor Gyökeres and veteran Paulinho having their own Golden Boot contest with six goals apiece from the opening 10 matches.

Benfica vs Sporting match tip

Draw & BTTS @ 100/30 with Betway

With just one defeat between them and just three points separating them in the table, the first Derby de Lisboa of the season should be a tight one. Sporting are yet to taste defeat so far in the league this season (W9, D1), while Benfica have not lost since their opening day defeat to Boavista. Both of the two head-to-head meetings between these sides last season finished 2-2.
