Andraž Šporar (62') and Luciano Vietto (67') scored for Sporting CP.
It has not been often in recent times that Desportivo Aves have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Aves have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 13 goals in the process. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this next game, however.
Going into this one, Desportivo Aves haven’t won at home in the past 4 league matches. Their supporters are understandably frustrated.

📰 Team News: Desportivo Aves
We think that Aves will possibly line up in a 5-4-1 system in the match featuring Jiaqi Han, Afonso, Ricardo Luís Chaby Mangas, Jonathan Buatu Mananga, Oumar Diakhite, Mato Milos, Estrela, Pedro Delgado, Rúben Oliveira, Bruno Morais and Reko Silva.
📰 Team News: Belenenses
Belenenses manager Armando Petit has some current player fitness concerns. Tomas Ribeiro (Ankle injury), Francisco Varela (Shoulder injury) and Diogo Calila (Thigh injury) will miss out on this game.
We are inclined to think that Azuis will likely make use of a 3-4-3 system, giving starts to André Moreira, Danny Henriques, Nuno Coelho, Chima Akas Uche, Tiago Esgaio, Manuel Cafumana Show, Andre Santos, Nilton Varela Lopes, Luis Carlos Lica, Mateo Cassierra and Silvestre Varela.
We’re thinking that Belenenses and Desportivo Aves should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two. Let’s see how it plays out, but a draw is looking likely to us. We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 1-1 score when all is said and done.
