There will be fireworks when Sporting CP and Benfica face each other in a highly-anticipated local derby.

The Lions do not want to give up on their title dream, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive league win.

Former PSG winger Pablo Sarabia, who scored a brace in a 3-1 win over Tondela, will be the man to watch in the home team, while important midfielder Joao Palhinha is back from suspension.

The Eagles, on the other hand, aim to build on a come-from-behind 3-1 win over Belenenses.

Benfica have little to play for in the season finale as they are stuck in 3rd place, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered.

Both Lucas Verissimo and Pinho missed the last league match with injuries, and the duo is rated doubtful for the Lisbon derby.

Darwin Nunez, who scored a hat-trick against O Belem, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line.

This match will be played on 17/04/2022 at 20:30

Prediction: 1-0

Recommended Pick: Home Win or Draw (1X).
