Tobias Gourlay's off to Tondela, which has recently become a breeding ground for good football
"Sporting are now five away games without a clean sheet"
Tondela v Sporting Lisbon
Mouscron's late equaliser earned them a 2-2 draw at home to Waasland-Beveren yesterday. But it cost Kev. Instead of a prime slab of juicy profit for our man, it was stakes returned. Nevertheless, the week just gone was a profitable one and we can see the old swagger starting to return.
Our shift begins in Portugal, where a team we've been keeping our eye on recently are playing host to one of the Big Three tonight. Tondela have been full of goals at Joao Cardoso Stadium this season. The Gold and Greens have served up 39 in 11 appearances there so far. Since a 1-0 defeat by Porto, they've scored in 10 straight and notched at least twice in 5/10. At the other end, however, they've managed just a single clean sheet.
Sporting Lisbon are winless in three on the road but, having scored in 9/10 away from home since term began, Jorge Jesus's boys shouldn't have too much trouble finding a way through Tondela's leaky rearguard. Down the other end, Sporting are now five away games without a clean sheet. That run includes three trips to teams below 11th-placed Tondela in the table.
Tondela themselves have scored in 4/5 head to heads with Sporting. At the Joao Cardoso since their promotion, encounters with Sporting have finished 1-2 and 1-4. Offered to us at a generous odds-against price, we're backing both teams to score this evening.
