Most Goals 2nd Half

Sporting Lisbon vs Arsenal 09.03.2023

Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon will be looking to make the most of their home crowd when they English giants Arsenal in Lisbon in the first leg of their last-16 tie. Sporting dropped from the Champions League and they looked to be in serious trouble after drawing 1-1 at home against Midtjylland. They have been in terrific form lately, winning 5 of their last 7 matches across all competitions. None of those opponents was remotely close to the visitors. That said, coach Amorim will be counting on his charges to give everything they have at least to keep the tie alive going to the return leg in London.

The Gunners come into this match in high spirits after the dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Bournemouth at the weekend that saw them continue to keep the chasing pack in the Premier League title race at arm’s length. They were almost flawless in the group stages with 5 wins from the 6 group games. Apart from the domestic league, this is certainly another competition that they have circled as a realistic target for this season

We expect a closely contested game here, particularly to start the game with neither team ceding too much ground. That should nevertheless give way to a more open closing half of the game with both teams trying to secure an advantage to carry to the 2nd leg. As such we fancy the 2nd half of this game to feature more goals than the 1st.
