Sporting Lisbon - Real Madrid

PICK: Real Madrid AH -0,75 @1,781 PINNACLE 6/10

Match between second and third team in the group. It's clear that Real will be at least 2nd in the group, but Sporting and Legia will fight for 3rd spot and Q for Liga Europe. Sporting is 2 points ahead of Legia, and almost for sure draw against Poland team will be enough for they're 3rd spot.

Sporting has nothing to lose in this match. They are coming in it after 5-1 win in cup but opponent was from 3rd Portuguese league, so... Good news for Sporting is that Jefferson is coming back after injury, but he will probably sit out the fixture against Real Madrid. Spalvis, Petrovic and Paulista remains on injury list as well. They lost in Dortmund just 1-0, and they were also in really good position for almost 90 minutes on Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid is coming to Champions league game after magnificent win on El Madrileño. That things are even more perfect CR scored hattrick and when he is happy, Madrid is happy. Morale is high, they are 4 points in front of Barcelona in La Liga, and if they scored 3 goals on Vicente Calderon to one of best defensive teams in the world, then they can score 3 goals against Sporting as well. It's still unsure if Ramos will come back to team or not, but "youngsters" Nacho and Varane looked solid against Atletico and are not my concern.

Real will play with they're style. Not with too much of possession, but with direct play. With Modrić back, they have they're midfield maestro back, and with Ronaldo and Bale in form, they looks great. They're coming to this match after best performance this season, they are trying to catch BVB to finish on 1st place, and I believe that they will leave Portugal with win.

FT: 1-2
