He makes a very good season and after 17 games he is in second place with 43 points.
He is two-time leader of FC Porto, but he has an advance towards Benfica team on the last stage of the three-point podium.
It has been untouchable so far, it has 13 wins and four draws.
He has the second defensive in the league after FC Porto with only ten goals.
On his own field he had very good evolutions, in nine games he has seven wins and two draws with FC Porto and Braga.
Jonathan Silva is the only unavailable player in the host camp.
The probable team: Patricio – Coentrao, Mathieu, Coates, Piccini – Fernandes, Carvalho, Acuna, Martins – Podence – Dost.
Club Desportivo Das Aves
After 17 rounds it is ranked 15 with 14 points won.
But it is just two points of places that can send it to the second season next season.
He has the fourth weakest attack in the Primeira League with just 16 successes on the scoreboard.
It comes after a series of four games without victory.
In a move in eight games he has two wins, three draws, and so many defeats are the other results.
Good news for the visiting team is that he has no injured or suspended player.
The probable team: Quim – Balde, Ponck, Galo, Defendi, Lenho – Amilton, Gomes, Falcao, Agra – Arango.
Aves returned this season on the first stage of Portuguese football, in the context of direct meeting meetings being just the sporting tournament in which Sporting was forced to move 2-0.
My tip: Sporting Lisbon vs Club Desportivo Das Aves
Sporting is a force in this championship, especially in the field, where it is as I said the non-fugitive.
In the nine games played on “Estadio Jose Alvalade” he received only four goals, two of which drew 2-2 with Sporting Braga, but managed to score 20 times in adverse gates.
Aves is a new promoted, makes a good season, but so far away from the championship giants he only played with Braga and lost a definite 3-0.
