Date: on the 07th of January, 2019 (Monday)
Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: The Primeira Liga.
The match between Tondela and Sporting Lisbon that will be held on Monday evening will become the final one in frames of the 16th round of the Primeira Liga.
The hosts of the future match are in great mood: they have finished the year with two home matches (one in frames of the Championship and one in frames of the Taça de Portugal) with the similar score 2:1.
They have celebrated the New Year with the same victory in frames of the 15th round of inland championship – Santa Clara was destroyed during away match.
This has allowed Tondela not only to leave the relegation zone but also to gain the 4th points distance. The team is going to move forward but the rivals are also very strong.
Sporting has won home match against Belenenses with difficulties and having used the mistake of Benfica, became the closest challenger of Porto.
The fight for the gold and the Champions League is in the height and that is why to lose the points in the match with rivals like Tondela is extremely undesirable.
Bearing in mind that since it gets into the elite division, Sporting has never tied the away match but won all, we can assume that they will win again.
To tell the truth we have to mention that the football club from the capital has missed in every match and now Tondela has no problems in creating and realization of scoring chances and Sporting rarely keeps a clean sheet. That is why both teams are able to score goals.
