It's all the more unfortunate because the capital's players were riding a series of seven games without defeat in all competitions, including an incredible run in the Coupe de la Ligue with three successes in the group stage without conceding a single goal 5-0, 0-2 and 6-0. At Sporting, the experienced Neto (defender) has been stuck in the infirmary since the 6th day or since September 9 following a serious injury and should again be forfeited this evening. Ditto for the midfielder, Daniel Braganca (2 goals in 26 days last season) who has not played a single minute this season in the league.
Sporting CP vs Vizela Prediction & Betting Tips (20 January)Vice-champion of Portugal last season, Sporting left their crown to Porto in a tough battle for the title.

Still in the race for Europe of course, the 19-time Portuguese champion still managed to hang Benfica in the derby on the previous day 2-2 but remained on a stormy defeat on the side of Maritimo 1-0.
Sporting CP vs Vizela Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The promising Chico Lamba does not have the confidence of his coach and never appears on the score sheet and the latter is currently injured as well. Called up to play the World Cup with the Japanese selection, Hidemasa Morita returned from Qatar injured and remains uncertain for tonight. At the start of the winter transfer window, Mateo Tanlongo settled in the capital from Rosario (Argentina) and has been on the bench twice since becoming eligible but never came into play.
Facing the eternal rival (Benfica), Pedro Goncalves (8 goals, 3 assists) came out of his box and took responsibility for the penalty but that was not enough since Goncalo Ramos scored twice. The Englishman, Marcus Edwards (5 pawns, 4 caviars) should be in the game like Nuno Santos (5 goals, 3 assists). Opposite, during the previous day, only the important Rican midfielder, Alex Mendez was not in the game because the latter was serving his suspension (accumulation of yellow cards). If there is only one Man of the Match trophy, it was two players who would have deserved to obtain this distinction, the author of the double, Milutin Osmakic (4 goals this season) and the altruistic midfielder starting ground Samu (2 achievements, 3 caviars this season) author of two assists. On the other hand, the first city could be leaving for Cadiz (Spain), on loan (to be continued).
