By Football News



Sporting Lisbon have been held to a scoreless draw at home by Academica, continuing the capital club's poor start in Liga Sagres.

While Monday's draw did halt a four-game losing streak for Sporting across all competitions, they remain in the bottom half of Portugal's top tier with just one victory from seven games.

Sporting had 59 percent possession against Academica but only managed six shots in the match with three on target, while the visitors had 17 shots with seven forcing a save from the goalkeeper.

Academica remain ahead of Sporting on the Liga Sagres table, sitting in eighth with eight points.

Sporting are in 10th with seven points.
