[CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Tottenham vs Sporting Match Preview

Tottenham is going to have an away game tomorrow against Sporting as their 2nd Champions League match. Both teams won their first game. It was shocking that Sporting won against Eintracht Frankfurt who was the winner of the Europa League the last season. However, many sites are predicting Tottenham would win because the club’s squad is overall better than Sporting.


Tottenham’s Predicted Lineup:

I think Conte will place the same squad which is the best squad as the last game against Marseille. If Tottenham vs Man City wasn’t postponed, then Conte would choose to rotation, but it was. The first team saved their energy so Conte will trust in them. Additionally, only Lucas Moura is injured who is not Conte’s first choice anyway.

Sporting’s Predicted Lineup:

Sporting’s squad condition is not great. The club’s main formation is 3 backs, but they will be missing 3 defenders; St. Juste, Goncalo, and Luis Neto on the game. Especially, St. Juste and Inacio are their first defenders. Since they don’t have enough centre-backs, I think they would bring out 4 backs this time.

My prediction:

I would predict Tottenham definitely win against Sporting with 3 vs 1 because Tottenham’s strength is their strikers; Kane, Son, and Richarlison, but since Sporting’s most first defenders will be missing, the club can not block them.

What is your guess?

Thank you for reading:)
