Farense, who have yet to fully settle in the Primeira Liga following their promotion this season, found solitude in the Taca da Liga group stage campaign as they picked up their first three points against Tondela, winning 1-0 at home despite being at a numerical disadvantage.
Prior to that, their trip to Parque Joaquim de Almeida Freitas to face off against Moreirense didn't quite produce the results they were anticipating, as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat.
So far, they have won two of the six matches played in the Primeira Liga, along with four losses in which they failed to score in three of those matches. They will be hoping to cause an upset by picking up their third win of the season against an in-form side in front of their fans, though that's unlikely to happen.
They currently occupy 11th place with 6 points in the standings, compared to two other teams. Their aspirations for an eighth-place finish are hindered by a three-point deficit.
Probable Starting XI
Velho; Pastor, Silva, Jorge, Talocha; Falcao, Isidoro; Belloumi, Matheus, Costa; Duarte
Rúben Amorim and co. mean business this season, having put on some impressive showings both in the domestic and continental stages. The Leões staged a memorial comeback in the Europa League group stage campaign to defeat Sturm Graz about a week ago.
This was later followed by a convincing 2-0 win at home against Rio Ave in the league, courtesy of first-half goals from Marcus Edwards and Paulinho, which ensured their dominance over their opponents was still intact.
Their form has been impressive, as not only have they yet to suffer defeat in their six matches played, recording five wins and a draw, but they are currently on a two-match winning streak that they'll be eager to extend to three matches.
They currently occupy first place with 16 points in the standings, level on points with second-placed FC Porto.
Probable Starting XI
A. Adan; O. Diomande, S. Coates, G. Inacio; G. Catamo, D. Braganca, H. Morita, N. Santos; P. Goncalves, V. Gyoekeres, Paulinho
This will be the first meeting between these two sides in the Primeira Liga.
Expert Betting Tips
Farense have shown little with their performance in the opening stages of the Primeira Liga, but they are not a side that can be ruled out of causing an upset, as they are a side that can step up to the plate when it comes to competitive matches.
Sporting CP will be seeking their third consecutive victory in this one, and their chances of doing so are highly likely. Given the level of quality and depth in their camp, they have the necessary arsenal at their disposal to make this an entertaining affair away from home.
As such, we don't see the away side succumbing to defeat in this one, as we feel they will be the stronger side, and picking them up to win combined with the total of over 2.5 goals should surface.
