Sporting Lisbon vs FC Barcelona UEFA Champions League Vegas Betting Tips, Free Predictions
<p>Sporting Lisbon</a> enjoyed a very successful start to their Champions League campaign earlier in September, but it was very close to being a disaster. They went three goals to the good away to Olympiakos in the first half and looked comfortable throughout, but two goals in two minutes for Olympiakos put Sporting on the back foot, although fortunately there was only injury time left to play and they managed to hold on.</p> <p>Since then the Portuguese giants have played three domestic games, and they haven&rsquo;t gone particularly well overall. They beat Tondela 2-0 but have drawn against Maritimo in the cup and Moreirense in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, leaving them two points adrift of rivals Porto at the top of the table.</p> <p>Sporting are yet to lose a match in 10 competitive fixtures this season and trail by Porto by two points in the Primeira Liga. They were made to work hard for a 1-1 draw at Moreirense on Saturday as they prepare for the high profile visit of Barcelona.</p> <p>Barcelona were expected to start struggling this season as their golden generation of players begin to show their age and Neymar leaving for the bright lights of Paris. Nothing could be further from the truth so far though.<br /><br />The Catalan giants did start the season with a Spanish Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid, but they have won all seven games since then and built a four point lead at the top of La Liga. They hammered Juventus 3-0 in their first Champions League group game, gaining some measure of revenge after the Turin side kept them from scoring for 180 minutes last season.</p> <p>Barcelona have won seven consecutive games after their Spanish Super Cup defeat against Real Madrid. During that time the Catalan side have scored 23 goals and conceded just two. They top La Liga by four points, swept past Girona 3-0 last time out and crushed Juventus 3-0 in their Champions League opener.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sporting are 13/2 to win this match, a draw is 4/1 with a Barcelona victory at 2/5.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> vs FC Barcelona</a> News &amp; Prediction</strong></h2> <p><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a>: </strong>Alan Ruiz came off at halftime against Moreirense on Saturday and is a doubt but he is Jorge Jesus&rsquo; only injury concern. Bruno Fernandes is likely to move back into his favoured #10 role behind Bas Dost</a> after playing in a deeper role against Moreirense.</p> <p><strong>FC Barcelona</a>: </strong>Rafinha&nbsp;and Ousmane Demb&eacute;l&eacute; are long term casualties but Ernesto Valverde still has a team full of world class talent. Sergio Busquets was rested against Girona and Paulinho was replaced with 30 minutes remaining which signals both players will start in Lisbon.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>VDB Free Betting Prediction:</strong>&nbsp; Sporting Lisbon</a> 1-3 FC Barcelona</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> vs FC Barcelona</a> VDB Betting Odds &amp; Lineups</strong></h2> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> vs FC Barcelona</a> VDB Betting Odds</strong></h3> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td><strong>Spread</strong></td> <td><strong>MoneyLine</strong></td> <td><strong>Total</strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a></strong></td> <td>+1&frac12; (-130)</td> <td>+650</td> <td>3&frac12; (+110)o</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong></td> <td>-1&frac12; (+105)</td> <td>-265</td> <td>3&frac12; (-135)u</td> </tr> <tr> <td><strong>DRAW</strong></td> <td>&ndash;</td> <td>+400</td> <td>&ndash;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h3 style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;<strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> vs FC Barcelona</a> Probable Lineups<br /></strong></h3> <p><img src="http://www.vegasdailybetting.com/images/estadisticas_Football_Soccer/Sportingvsbarcelona26092017_1.png?1506437830190" alt="Sportingvsbarcelona26092017_1" width="751" height="745" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> vs FC Barcelona</a> VDB Sport Betting Head to Head and Matchup Report</strong></h2> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> - Last 6 Games</strong></h3> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td>23/09/2017</td> <td>Moreirense - Sporting CP</td> <td><strong>1 : 1</strong>&nbsp; (1 : 0) (0 : 1)</td> <td>(<strong>D</strong>)</td> <td>Liga Zon Sagres</td> </tr> <tr> <td>19/09/2017</td> <td>Sporting CP - Mar&iacute;timo</td> <td><strong>0 : 0</strong>&nbsp; (0 : 0) (0 : 0)</td> <td>(<strong>D</strong>)</td> <td>Carlsberg Cup 3.Round Gr.B</td> </tr> <tr> <td>16/09/2017</td> <td><strong>Sporting CP</strong> - Tondela</td> <td><strong>2 : 0</strong>&nbsp; (1 : 0) (1 : 0)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Liga Zon Sagres</td> </tr> <tr> <td>12/09/2017</td> <td>Olympiakos - <strong>Sporting CP</strong></td> <td><strong>2 : 3</strong>&nbsp; (0 : 3) (2 : 0)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Champions League Gr.D</td> </tr> <tr> <td>08/09/2017</td> <td>Feirense - <strong>Sporting CP</strong></td> <td><strong>2 : 3</strong>&nbsp; (0 : 0) (2 : 3)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Liga Zon Sagres</td> </tr> <tr> <td>27/08/2017</td> <td><strong>Sporting CP</strong> - Estoril</td> <td><strong>2 : 1</strong>&nbsp; (2 : 0) (0 : 1)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Liga Zon Sagres</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>FC Barcelona</a> - Last 6 Games</strong></h3> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td>23/09/2017</td> <td>Girona - <strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong></td> <td><strong>0 : 3</strong>&nbsp; (0 : 1) (0 : 2)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Primera Division</td> </tr> <tr> <td>19/09/2017</td> <td><strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong> - Eibar</td> <td><strong>6 : 1</strong>&nbsp; (2 : 0) (4 : 1)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Primera Division</td> </tr> <tr> <td>16/09/2017</td> <td>Getafe - <strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong></td> <td><strong>1 : 2</strong>&nbsp; (1 : 0) (0 : 2)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Primera Division</td> </tr> <tr> <td>12/09/2017</td> <td><strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong> - Juventus</td> <td><strong>3 : 0</strong>&nbsp; (1 : 0) (2 : 0)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Champions League Gr.D</td> </tr> <tr> <td>09/09/2017</td> <td><strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong> - Espanyol</td> <td><strong>5 : 0</strong>&nbsp; (2 : 0) (3 : 0)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Primera Division</td> </tr> <tr> <td>26/08/2017</td> <td>Alav&eacute;s - <strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong></td> <td><strong>0 : 2</strong>&nbsp; (0 : 0) (0 : 2)</td> <td>(<strong>W</strong>)</td> <td>Primera Division</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><strong>Sporting Lisbon</a> vs FC Barcelona</a> Last Meeting Result</strong></h3> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td style="text-align: center;" colspan="4" height="24px"><strong>Champions League Gr.C</strong> (UEFA)</td> </tr> <tr> <td width="110px">26/11/08, 20:45</td> <td>Sporting Lisboa - <strong>FC Barcelona</a></strong></td> <td><strong>2 : 5</strong>&nbsp; (0 : 2) (2 : 3)</td> <td>5.
