Sporting Lisbon will welcome Pacos Ferreira to the Estadio Jose Alvalade for a Primeira Liga matchday 28 fixture on Sunday.

The home side come into the game on the back of a 3-1 comeback away win over Vitoria Guimares before the international break. Pablo Sarabia, Paulinho and Marcus Edwards all found the back of the net for the capital side.

Sporting Lisbon vs Pacos Ferreira Prediction

Sporting Lisbon might be behind Porto in the race for the title, but the defending champions are sure to take the race down to the wire.

Their defense has been less stringent than last season and Pacos Ferreira's fine run of form means they are likely to get on the scoresheet. However, we are backing the home side to secure the win with goals at both ends.

Prediction: Sporting Lisbon 3-1 Pacos Ferreira
