Sporting are one of Portugal’s domineering big three, but unlike their all-conquering rivals Benfica and Porto, they haven’t made much of an impression in the European Cup. Their most successful tilt at Uefa’s premier prize came in 1983, when they were knocked out at the quarter-final stage by Real Sociedad. Other than that, there’s very little worth noting. Beaten in the first round by Bob Shankly’s Dundee in 1962. Thrashed 5-0 at home last autumn by Manchester City. These are slim pickings. At least they’ve got memories of the 1964 Cup Winners’ Cup to keep them warm at night.

Last year’s thrashing by the hand of City came in the Round of 16. It was only the second time Sporting had made it through the groups, the first being 2008-09, whereupon they were spanked 12-1 on aggregate by Bayern Munich. The moral of this story? It’s either be careful what you wish for, or that Sporting are currently on the up. Let’s go for the latter, as they beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 and Besiktas 4-0 at home last season, to finish second in their group, even if they did go down 5-1 when Ajax came to town. More pertinently, they trounced Europa League champions Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 away last week, and currently top Group D, one goal ahead of tonight’s visitors Spurs, who eventually saw off Marseille last week with two late Richarlison headers.

Spurs are nevertheless expected to prevail this evening. “Tottenham are the clear favourites in the group,” says Sporting coach Ruben Amorim. “We will have to be wary because they will punish us for the slightest mistake.” By contrast, Antonio Conte is “relaxed” and in the mood to take advantage of the weekend off. “The postponement of the game against City has allowed me to change the idea of the team I had in mind,” he explains, perhaps ominously for tonight’s hosts. Will his team take charge of Group D with a win tonight? Or will it be Sporting who build on their impressive showing last week? Kick off is at 5.45pm BST. It’s on!

main events

32 minutes: Tottenham win a corner on the left. Son takes. Eden punches. Bentancourt pulls a dismal shot a mile wide left. That’s better than Spurs, though, after a while Sporting He began to take control.

30 minutes: Silly position, where Emerson whips a low cross through Sporting Six yards square to the right. Five sporting defenders, plus the goalkeeper, fail to handle the ball as it whistles through the danger zone and out for a throw. Sun brings it back. Once again, Sporting failed to tackle it and a sharp attacker like Kane or Richarlison is sure to hit the house from six yards. But it’s up to Emerson, who can’t connect properly, allowing Adan to claim in the end.

28 minutes: Trinkau swung his way to the right before cutting the ball for Boru, who fired in a brutal cross for a goal kick. This game is neither horrible nor great.

26 minutes: Some good overall fun. First, Richarlison meets Perisic’s left pass, but I saw him down in the far stick weak and easy for Adan in Sporting Goal. Through the sports counter through racy Edwards, Trincao lines up one from the edge of the D. He pulls his shot far to the right.

24 minutes: Edwards instantly spins and is off three Spurs players in a nanosecond. An exciting skill, which I spoiled only slightly when I mishandled while accelerating away.

22 minutes: Inacio shoves a pass down the right inner channel in hopes of releasing the Goncalves. A better ball would have seen Spurs in trouble, with plenty of room down this side of the pitch, but serving heavy and sailing for the goal kick.

20 minutes: Sporting Keep the ball. Spurs keep their shape.

18 minutes: Few waves of warm applause Sporting They respond with some possession of their own. They investigated both sides. Santos is especially looking up from the left. The spurs retain their shape, but the hosts are slowly beginning to assert some local field authority.

16 minutes: A period of attractive but futile possession for Spurs, which he navigates well between before running out of ideas in the final third.

14 minutes: Santos probes lower left. Morita meets his low cross, which takes a pass in the open air, allowing Dier and Emerson to close the door. Sporting They look lively whenever they choose to move forward.

12 minutes: Sporting Hit it around the middle of the garden with little to no effect. However, Estádio José Alvalade is rocking. Great atmosphere in Lisbon, although the early kick-off time means the stadium isn’t completely full.

10 minutes: Davis and Perisic gently unite down the left, and they seem to have won another Spurs corner, but the flag goes up due to offside on the move, it turns out.

8 minutes: Loris claims Sporting corner. Feeling nice and open in the early stages.

7 minutes: Former Tottenham player Edwards dribble quickly down the right inner channel. He draws two defenders and makes a pass to Goncalves to the left of D.. The pass pushes Goncalves wider than he would like, but he still makes a clever low diagonal effort down the right. He’s heading in, and Loris has to hold his fingertips around the post. Great football in all respects.

5 minutes: Bentancourt takes a hit from distance. His efforts are commissioned by Inacio, who bravely takes the square shot in the fruit bowl. He immediately descends and stops playing so he can take inventory and breathe.

3 minutes: …a pinball game breaks out in a six-yard square. Sporting Their lines eventually cleared, but that’s a confident start for visitors.

2 minutes: Spurs are immediately ahead, and Perisic wins a corner. Of any …

Spurs roll the ball. Lots of noise now.

You spend one of those minutes mentioned above in silence in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. Well, not completely in silence. It’s not particularly well noted by some fans at home, who make a little noise, but then it’s not Portugal’s royal family, and while you can make it a matter of morals, they’re not obligated. The majority respect the moment, to be fair.

The difference is out! Sporting They wore their famous green and white stripes, while the spurs are wrapped in a gradient-marketing-approved recipe here in blue. Zadok the Priest quick blast (version) and we’ll be off in two minutes.

Antonio Conte, who emits very calm feelings, speaks to BT Sport. “Richardison played very well against Marseille and also against Fulham. I think it was right to choose him to play from the start. It is always important to get a good result in this competition. He is very short. You don’t get too many games to get points. For this reason, every A really important game. It is always difficult to play against a Portuguese team, especially abroad. The atmosphere in this stadium is not easy, there is a lot of noise, and we have to be good from the start. We have to manage the situation very well.”

Tottenham made one change to the so-called starting lineup with last week’s 2-0 win over Marseille. Ben Davies replaces Clement Lenglet who falls off the bench.

Sporting Lisbon includes former Tottenham academy player Marcus Edwards. David Heitner has more about the young striker who has always looked like he could make an appearance at Tottenham Champions League Tie – albeit not in a sports shirt – below.

Preamble

Sporting is one of Portugal’s dominant big three, but unlike their winning rivals Benfica and Porto, they haven’t made much of an impression in the European Cup. Their most successful potential came in winning the UEFA First Prize in 1983, when they were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Real Sociedad. Other than that, there is very little worth mentioning. Lost in the first round by Dundee Bob Shankly in 1962. He was crushed 5-0 at home last fall by Manchester City. This is a small selection. At least they have memories of the 1964 Cup Winners’ Cup to keep them warm at night.

The victory came last year at the hands of City in the round of 16. This was only the second time Sporting qualified across groups, the first being 2008-09, where they were beaten 12-1 on aggregate by Bayern Munich. The moral of this story? Either you are keen on what you wish for, or Sporting is in a good position right now. Let’s move on to the latter, as they beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 and Besiktas 4-0 at home last season, to finish second in their group, even if they lost 5-1 when Ajax came to town. More fittingly, they beat European champions Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 last week and currently top Group D by one goal over visitors Tottenham, who eventually beat Marseille last week with two late heads from Richarlison.

However, Spurs are expected to prevail this evening. “Tottenham are the favorites in the group,” said Sporting coach Ruben Amorim. “We must be careful because they will punish us for the slightest mistake.” By contrast, Antonio Conte is “relaxed” and in a good mood to take advantage of the weekend. “The postponement of the match against City allowed me to change the idea of ​​the team I had in mind,” he explains, perhaps ominously for my hosts tonight. Will his team take charge of Group D with a win tonight? Or is Sporting building on last week’s impressive performance? Kick off at 5.45pm GMT. It’s up!
