Man of the Moment

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem like a good idea to side with Erling Braut Haaland – if he recovers from a training injury in time – as he is the top-scoring player for Dortmund in their last 6 matches. He managed to find the back of the net 6 times and will surely want to add some more goals in the following match against Sporting CP.

The visitors will be looking up to in-form Joao Palhinha to find the net once again as he has been their top scorer recently. The midfielder has netted 2 goals for Sporting CP in their last 6 matches.
