Sean Miller's Saturday soccer picks: Dortmund vs Hertha in Bundesliga, Tondela vs Sporting Lisbon in Liga Nos
Borussia Dortmund (-185) vs. Hertha BSC (+525), draw (+325), 12:30 p.m. EST (ESPN+); Tondela (+650) vs. Sporting Lisbon (-240), draw (+325), 3:30 p.m. EST (GOL and Fubo.TV)
Sporting Lisbon tries to move closer to Portuguese title Saturday
Ah, the stadium in Tondela, Portugal. I have seen some decent matches there over the last decade.
Sporting Lisbon will hope that its trip to Tondela today is a happy one, as a victory could move the club that much closer to the Liga Nos title, breaking the hegemony of Porto and Benfica at the top.
Incredibly, it is Braga that is the closest to Sporting right now, even though Porto is into the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.
In Germany, Borussia Dortmund is also into the Champions League quarters, but might have to win that tournament to get back, unless their form in the Bundesliga changes quickly. Today, Dortmund can get back on track with a win over Hertha.
