Europa League - Group C. At Estádio José de Alvalade XXI in Lisbon, the match between Sporting and Lille.
Home team are leaders of the group and Lille are placed second. Sporting were impressive at home beating Levski 5-0 and Gent 5-1. Not strong opponents however. Then they unexpectedly lost to Belgian team 1-3 on the road. Abel was red carded in 77 minute when the score was still 1-1, then Portugal side conceded two goals. So nothing they still need a point to be 100% sure in this competition.
Their firts match ened 1-2 for Sporting. Now Portugal team needs a draw here as they have 9 points. Lille have only 5 points - one more than the rest of the table.
When Lille were playing away from home 2 goals on average were scored till half time. Same statistic but in home game for Sporting is 3.5 goals. Sporting have been criticized lately and they should respond positively in this clash. On the other hand Lille will have to play for victory. In French league they are placed on the second position and their form is rising. Basing on the statistics and expecting fast tempo from the start, especially from french side, I will stick to more than one goal scored till half time. Good luck!
