Sporting CP vs. FC Porto May 25 Preview

There will be no Cinderella this season in the Taca de Portugal.

Last year, the cup was won by minnows Aves, which stunned the country and eventually beat Sporting CP 2-1 in the final.

This season, two of the top three teams in the final Primeira League standings will battle for the last piece of silverware on offer.

Porto saw its season fizzle out, losing in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League to finalists Liverpool, while also falling just short of a league title.  Sporting finished third, 11 points behind Porto.

The two teams played a contentious last day contest, which saw red cards for both teams in a 2-1 win for Porto.

The teams have played seven times since the beginning of 2018, with Porto winning three, three draws, and Sporting winning once. This season saw two draws before the final fay win for Porto.

A money line bet on Porto is -110, with Sporting +290. But the odds to lift the cup are vastly in Porto’s favor: -212 to +155 for Sporting.

In five of the last eight matches the two have played, there has been a shutout, so the under 2.5 goals is -137. The over 2.5 is set at +105.

Sporting CP vs. FC Porto May 25 Prediction

Porto to score 2-plus goals is a good value at +105.
