FC Porto v Sporting Lisbon Team News

Both teams have been in very good form of late, at least on the domestic level. Porto are riding a ten-game winning streak in the PL, while Sporting have won seven (W7, D2, L1) over that same span.

Sandwiched between their PL winning streak, Porto registered an embarrassing 5-0 home loss to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League round-of-16.

The head-to-head record between these two sides is tight - in 228 games across all competitions, Porto have a slim edge of 82 wins against 81 wins for Sporting (65 draws). The Lisbon side have the edge when it comes to goals scored however, with 327 against Porto’s 304.

These teams have already met three times this season. Porto have a slight edge with one win and two draws, although, one of those draws ended with a Sporting win after a penalty shootout in the League Cup semi-finals.

Players to watch: Moussa Marega has been the top scorer for Porto this season with 20 goals in 23 PL appearances. That’s the same amount Bas Dost has for Sporting, but the Dutchman has needed two fewer games to reach that mark.

Teams' Potential Starting Lineups:

FC Porto (4-3-3): Casillas; Dalot, Felipe, Marcano, Pereira; Otavio, Oliveira, Herrera; Brahimi, Soares, Marega.

Sporting Lisbon (4-4-1-1): Patricio; Coentrao, Mathieu, Coates, Piccini; Acuna, Battaglia, Carvalho, Cesar; Fernandes, Montero.

Injured or Suspended Players:

FC Porto: Danilo Pereira, Bruno Martins Indi, Vincent Aboubakar, Alex Telles, Jesus Manuel Corona.
