Sporting vs Young Boys Top free betting tips

Sporting welcomes Young Boys to Lisbon, Portugal in the second leg of the round of 16 from the Europa League. Sporting won the first leg fairly comfortably by three goals to one against the Swiss side. Sporting went ahead by one goal thanks to an own goal from Aurele Amenda before a forty-first-minute penalty from Viktor Gyokeres made it 2-0, Young Boys halved their deficit immediately when Filip Ugrinic made it 2-1 just before halftime. Goncalo Inacio then restored Sporting's two-goal advantage just three minutes into the second half and that is how the game was ending until Mohamed Camara received a second yellow card in the 88th minute which saw Young Boys go down to ten men.

​​Correct outcome prediction: Sporting to Win

For our first Sporting vs Young Boys prediction, we have gone with a win for the side from Portugal. Both teams are in excellent form but with Sporting having a superior squad and coming up against better teams in their domestic leagues, we feel like this gives Sporting an advantage. Sporting have lost two of their ten Liga Portugal away matches this season but did go unbeaten away from home in the group stages of the Europa League.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

We have dived into the goals market with our next Sporting vs Young Boys prediction. We believe that both teams will find the back of the net. Sporting have kept four clean sheets in their previous five matches and have scored an incredible twenty-one goals in that time but we do feel like Young Boys will manage to find a way through what is a stubborn Sporting defence. Young Boys have failed to score just once in their previous eighteen matches.

​​Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Sporting

Our final Sporting vs Young Boys prediction is traditionally the correct score. We have gone with a 2-1 victory for the side from Portugal. Sporting has won a lot of matches this season, most of which have come with Sporting scoring at least two goals. All of Sporting's previous five matches have ended with Sporting winning and scoring at least twice.

How far will Young Boy's fans travel to Lisbon, where Sporting plays?

There are many ways to travel from Switzerland to Portugal. Several train and bus services link up mainland Europe. However, those journeys will take over a full day and we believe that almost all away fans will opt to fly to Portugal. 

The flight time between Bern in Switzerland and Lisbon in Portugal is around three hours, which is much better than spending more than a full day in a car or on one of Europe's many coaches.
