Direct meetings
Five times they’ve met and as expected Sporting is in the advantage.
She has three wins, and Tondela has none and twice has finished.
In the tour of this championship was imposed the band from the capital Lusitana with 2-0.
She also won the last confrontation on Estadio Joao Cardoso with a score of 4-1.

My tip for Tondela vs Sporting Lisbon
Sporting is by far the better team, with a much larger budget and obviously some players and a higher quality technical bank, and this is also seen from the standpoint of the rankings, being separated by 8 seats.
Tondela has played 11 times in his own field in this championship and in 6 of these games he was defeated, which proves it is not a home force.
Sporting Lisbon was in 10 away games in the current edition of the Primeira Liga and 6 of them won from the other 4, in 2 of them drew being equalized in overtime.
Both in this tournament and in the last duel on Estadio Joao Cardoso, the three points were won by the band in the capital of Portugal.
