Sporting CP will welcome Tottenham Hotspur at the José Alvalade Stadium on Tuesday evening as both sides look to go all out in search of the victory. Sporting managed to pick up a 4-0 win over Portimonense last weekend. Similarly, Spurs earned a 2-0 win over Olympique Marseille last week, so we can expect to see a great match with the two teams confident about securing the three points in this UEFA Champions League game.
Sporting CP vs Tottenham Hotspur: Talking Tactics
Ruben Amorim will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and could ask his players to control the flow of the game and create a lot of problems for the opposition defenders.
Antonio Conte will set his men up in a 3-4-2-1 formation as well and could instruct them to sit deep and try to catch the home team off-guard on the counter.
Jeremiah St Juste and Luis Neto will be sidelined for this game because of injuries. Furthermore, Goncalo Inacio is a slight doubt for his game as well and will be in a race against time to be fit for this game.
Sporting CP Predicted XI
Adan; Esgaio, Coates, Inacio; Porro, Morita, Ugarte, Reis; Trincao, Edwards, Goncalves
Lucas Moura will be out of action in midweek as he is still recovering from a tendon injury. Otherwise, Conte has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this week.
Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI
Lloris; Romero, Lenglet, Dier; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son
Antonio Adán will have to make a few important saves if Sporting are to come out on top in midweek. At the other end, Marcus Edwards would be eager to get his name on the scoresheet when he laces up to face off against his old club in front of the Sporting supporters.
Harry Kane will once again be Tottenham’s best hope for a goal in the final third. The performance of Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur at the centre of Tottenham’s midfield could go a long way in determining the fate of this contest.
