Sporting CP face Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League 2022-23 at Jose Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon on Tuesday, September 13. The match will start at 10:15 PM IST (Indian Standard Time). 

Sporting CP had an underwhelming start to the Liga Portugal 2022-23 campaign with only one win in the first four games. However, the Lisbon-based club have won three matches on the bounce since and gained good form. Sporting beat Eintracht Frankfurt on matchday 1 of the UCL campaign, thanks to Marcus Edwards’ all-round performance in the second half.

Antonio Conte’s Tottenham have been on the charge towards glory at the start of the season. Spurs won comfortably on matchday 1 of the Champions League campaign against Olympique de Marseille. With four wins and two draws, Tottenham are currently third on the Premier League 2022-23 points table with 14 points. Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil are unlikely to feature at Lisbon due to injury concerns.

Sporting CP top picks and players to watch vs Tottenham UEFA Champions League 2022-23 

Pedro Porro: The Spanish right-sided midfielder has made two assists in five Liga Portugal appearances this season. Porro is a good playmaker from the wing-back position and also has commendable defensive capabilities. The 22-year-old assisted Sporting’s third goal against Frankfurt on matchday 1 of the UCL 2022-23.

Marcus Edwards: The 23-year-old Englishman will go up against his former club in this encounter. Edwards has three goals and three assists in the league and UCL combined this season. He also averages 2.2 key passes per game in Liga Portugal.

Tottenham top picks and players to watch vs Sporting CP UEFA Champions League 2022-23

Harry Kane: Spurs’ premier striker has netted five goals in six matches this season in the Premier League. Kane’s consistency has been admirable over the years for Spurs with his goal-scoring and playmaking exploits in both domestic and European competitions.  

Richarlison: The Brazilian forward scored a brace on matchday 1 of UCL 2022-23 against Olympique de Marseille. Richarlison has also registered two assists in the Premier League for Spurs after his €58 million move from Everton in the summer. His pace and trickery on the ball will be difficult to handle for Sporting CP.

Sporting CP vs Tottenham UEFA Champions League 2022-23 prediction

Tottenham have been in good form in the Premier League of late and also begun the new UCL campaign with a victory on matchday 1. Spurs have some world-class players in their ranks, especially in attack, and have a higher winning probability against Sporting Lisbon on matchday 2.

Sporting CP recovered after a poor start and are on a winning streak. However, the Portuguese club lack firepower against a team like Spurs and are unlikely to win this match. They can be expected to be competitive and fight for a point in this encounter.
