MATCH ANALYSIS

Boavista are one of just two Primeira Liga sides yet to taste defeat this season, but the visit of Sporting CP will test their resolve. Twelve of their last 13 meetings have ended in victory for the Lisbon club and despite a slip-up last time out to Rio Ave, the trend is unlikely to be bucked here.
