Sporting v Juventus Team News

The only spooky thing about this fixture is Sporting Lisbon’s current form in the competition, having lost their last 2 (including 2-1 vs Juve) and they are now desperate for a win to stay in contention.

Sporting are hoping to make amends after the reverse fixture, a hard fought 2-1 loss in Turin 2 weeks ago. Home advantage may be key for the Portuguese outfit in this massive fixture.

Juventus will be favourites for the tie, but Sporting will fancy their chances as domestically they remain unbeaten (8W, 2D) in their first 10 games. Juventus are not exactly pushovers themselves in Italy, coming into this off the back of a convincing 2-0 victory away to AC Milan.

The title race in Italy is wide open this term, but this is not down to a decline in form for Juve. They have not achieved more points after 11 games in the last 8 seasons (28).

5 of Juventus’ last 6 games, and 3 of Sporting’s last 5 have ended with over 2.5 goals (total). The hosts are a slightly more feisty bunch, averaging 1.9 cards per game this term, compared with Juventus’ 1.1.

Teams' Possible Starting Lineups:

Sporting: Patrício - Coentrão, Pinto, Coates, Piccini - Battaglia, Carvalho - Acuña, Fernandes, Martins - Doumbia (4-2-3-1 formation)

Juventus: Buffon - Sandro, Chiellini, Barzagli, Sciglio - Matuidi, Pjanic - Costa, Dybala, Cuadrado - Higuaín (4-2-3-1 formation)

Missing Players of Sporting and Juventus:

Sporting: Jeremy Mathieu, Daniel Podence.

Juventus: Benedikt Höwedes, Medhi Benatia, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Marko Pjaca.
