Sporting Lisbon sit in 11th place and have only won 1 of their last 5 matches. Their home form is depressing as they have lost more matches at home (4) than they have won (3).
Porto are undefeated in their last 33 matches in the league and they still seem to be a dominant force in Portugal despite selling key players every year.
