The second week of this year’s Champions League campaign sees Sporting Lisbon host Tottenham Hotspur, with both sides eager for a result that will take them one step closer to the knockout rounds.
Spurs got off to a great start in their return to Europe’s elite competition with a 2-0 win over Marseille last week, all thanks to a second half brace from their summer signing Richarlison.
Antonio Conte’s men have also had an impressive start to life in the Premier League this season and they sit in third place after avoiding defeat in each of their opening six matches.
The Lilywhites will also feel well rested after a weekend without playing and should be confident heading into their clash against Lisbon.
However, the English side will know that the Lions will provide a stern test and they certainly showed their quality in their 3-0 demolition of Europe League champions Frankfurt last week, a win that leaves them top of Group D.
Former Tottenham Youngster, Marcus Edwards, was thoroughly impressive in Germany, and Sporting fans will be hoping he can display a similar performance against his old club.

Sporting Lisbon vs Tottenham Team News
Antonio Conte’s only injury concern is forward Lucas Moura who is nursing a tendon issue, but after having a few extra days to recover, the Brazilian may be fit to feature.
Ruben Amorim unfortunately cannot boast the same level of availability in his squad, with defenders Jerimiah St Juste and Luis Neto both out of contention to play this evening.
Centre-back Goncalio Inacio was also taken off in his side’s win over Portimonense at the weekend but the change was believed to be precautionary, so the 21 year old should start in tonight’s match.
