Sporting to Land Eighteenth Cup

Sporting dominated the Primera Liga this season, recording 90 points and only losing 2 games, on their way to their 20th league title. Meanwhile, Porto finished 3rd on 72 points, securing qualification for the Europa League.

Both teams have won their last 3 games. However, Sporting have only lost once in their last 24 games and have won 10 of their last 12 contests. While Porto may be unbeaten in their last 7 games, they did experience a shaky spell through March and early April, where they lost 4 times in a 6-game span.

Going into this one, Sporting are the favourites but it will be an interesting clash, to say the least.
