Arouca vs Sporting CP betting tips: Primeira Liga preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

After a dramatic trip to North London on Wednesday night, Sporting CP are straight back to league business.

In midweek, Rúben Amorim’s team drew 1-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but that doesn’t begin to tell the story.

Marcus Edwards spectacularly broke the deadlock, with Spurs then equalising late on, before seemingly snatching a win in the 95th minute.

However, after a 4+ minute VAR delay, the goal was chalked off, leaving Group D tantalising poised.

For Sporting, if they avoid defeat against Frankfurt at Estádio José Alvalade next Tuesday, they’ll reach the round of 16.

Before then, the Lions will make a long trip north, needing to avoid dropping points.

Arouca meanwhile held Marítimo to a 1-1 draw last weekend; Antony with an equaliser at Estádio dos Barreiros.

Arouquenses only avoided relegation by two points last season, so will be delighted with their current position of 11th.

Can they stun Sporting at Estádio Municipal de Arouca?
