Home form suggests Maritimo may down Eagles

Porto's perfect start set to end at Sporting

Maritimo line up for photgraphs before last season's home meeting with Benfica
1 of 1

FreeSports, from 6pm Sunday

Sporting v Porto 6pm
Porto are a perfect seven from seven in the Portuguese top flight but they could see their 100 per cent league record end when they travel to Lisbon to face title rivals Sporting.

There’s little to separate the sides in terms of ability but Sporting are a formidable force on their own patch.

They have lost just three of their last 54 home league games and were beaten only 1-0 by visiting giants Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Recommendation
Sporting Lisbon draw no bet
1pt 4-5 Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Porto haven't won at Sporting since 2008.

Maritimo v Benfica 8.15pm
Maritimo have won their opening four league games in Madeira and a victory would see them leapfrog Benfica, who may be low on confidence following Wednesday's 5-0 drubbing at Basel.

The Eagles have picked up just four road points from trips to Chaves, Rio Ave and Boavista and were beaten 2-1 in the league at Maritimo last term.

Recommendation
Maritimo draw no bet
1pt 9-2 bet365

Key stat
Maritimo are unbeaten in 19 home league games.
