Group F of the Champions League features some very interesting games this week. We can see a clash between Dortmund and Real Madrid, which will decide the leader of the group, and a game for 3rd place, between Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw – which is much harder to predict that it looks on paper.
Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Lisbon – 07/12/2016
FT Result: Legia 4.60 or 18/5 Draw 3.90 or 29/10 Sporting 1.80 or 4/5
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.65 or 13/20 Under 2.20 or 6/5
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.61 or 8/13 No 2.20 or 6/5
We’re saying it’s hard to predict because Legia has shown they are capable of playing good football, especially at home. They gained a very credible draw against Real Madrid here, their only point in the group so far, but lost very heavily against Dortmund.
They scored 4 times in their last CL clash but were defeated 8-4 by the German giants, but all these results tell us one thing – the Polish will give everything they have in this game, and they are more than capable of scoring a few goals.
On the other hand, Sporting are favorites on paper because they simply have better players. They won their previous clash against Legia 2-0, and only need a draw to be sure of 3rd place, which leads them to the Europa League knockout rounds in spring.
They are in great form at the moment, only barely losing against Dortmund and Real. Due to the quality of their squad, they should be able to meet their objective and avoid defeat against the Polish.
Legia Warsaw vs Sporting Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we think that we’ll see a game with goals, in which Sporting will avoid defeat. X2 is the easiest bet, while a solo away win is also a good idea. Over 2,5 goals is an almost certainty since the home team will attack from the first whistle.
Over 1,5 goals for Sporting is another great idea, while a “both to score” bet is definitely a good idea. And last but not least, our favorite combo bet of the day is Sporting to win and over 2,5 goals.
Both Teams To Score – Yes @ 1.64 or 20/31
Sporting Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 2.20 or 6/5
