Santa Clara team news

Heading in 2022 it’s clear Santa Clara are in a relegation dogfight. Clemente’s side find themselves sitting one place and one point above the danger zone. To date they’ve won three matches two of which have come across their previous four league outings. Before this small turnaround Os Açoreanos had claimed one success across 12 matches which included seven losses. At home they are currently on a two-game winning streak. In fact, since a 0-1 loss to Sporting Braga in February 2021 they’ve played 16 times at home only losing on three occasions. This will also be the sixth time Santa Clara have welcomed Sporting, but they’ve never ended with a victory, their only positive result came in August 1999 when they held Giuseppe Materazzi’s side to a 2-2 draw.

Santa Clara predicted XI: Pereira; Henrique, Afonso, Villanueva, Mansur; Nene, Morita; Lincoln, Crysan, Patric; Costa.

Across the club’s past five trips outside Lisbon they’ve averaged 2.2 goals per game while only conceding just twice.
