Spurs can qualify for the Champions League knockout rounds for the first time since the 2019/20 season with a win over Sporting CP at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and get revenge for their defeat in Portugal in the process.

Antonio Conte could become just the second Tottenham manager after Harry Redknapp in 2010/11 to win each of his first three home Champions League in charge of the club after victories over Marseille and Eintracht Frankfurt in Matchdays 1 and 4. Spurs’ 10 games in the group stage of the Champions League have seen a total of 41 goals scored (23 for, 18 against), at an average of 4.1 per game since the beginning of 2019/20 season and we could get another high scoring affair here. 

Tottenham have won six of their seven home European matches against Portuguese opposition (including qualifiers), with their one defeat coming against Benfica in March 2014 in the Europa League, while Sporting CP have won just two of their 15 away matches in England in European competition (D4 L9), winning 4-2 at Southampton in the UEFA Cup in October 1981 and 3-2 at Middlesbrough in March 2005, also in the UEFA Cup.

A win would see Sporting CP become the fifth team to beat Spurs on multiple occasions in a UEFA Champions League campaign, after Real Madrid in 2010/11, Monaco in 2016/17 and Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig in 2019/20.
