Sporting will be looking to celebrate a first Primeira Liga championship since 2002 when they host Boavista at Estádio José Alvalade on Tuesday evening (20:30 UK time).
Rúben Amorim’s unbeaten side could already be crowned champions if Porto fails to beat Farense a day earlier. Boavista meanwhile are seeking to preserve their first division status.

Sporting vs Boavista build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
A 25th win of this incredible season will secure unbeaten Primeira Liga leaders Sporting their 19th domestic championship and first since 2002 back when they were led by László Bölöni and had Hugo Viana and Jardel to call upon. Rúben Amorim’s current incarnation has been nothing short of amazing having won 11 of their previous 15 home games, including the last three on the bounce, subsequently registering 28 goals whilst conceding just nine times.
It will be a tall order for relegation threatened Boavista to temporarily halt Sporting’s march towards glory. The Panthers are currently on a four-game winless streak (two draws and two defeats) heading into this fixture and find themselves in the bottom three albeit one point adrift of safety. Boavista have also claimed just one win across their last six away trips. However during that run they managed to snatch a draw from the jaws of victory at Porto.
- Sporting (vs Rio Ave): Adán; Inácio, Feddal, Coates; Pereira, Palhinha, Mário, Mendes; Santos, Gonçalves; Paulinho.
- Boavista (vs Tondela): Jardim; Awaziem, Rami, Devenish; Cannon, Sauer, Pérez, Paulinho, Mangas; Gomes, Elis.
Pedro Porro is expected to again miss out for Sporting with a muscular issue. There are no Boavista players currently reported injured or suspended.
Player to watch: Pedro Gonçalves (Sporting)
It would be fitting if Pedro Gonçalves played an instrumental role in Sporting’s next league win. This success would end the club’s 21-year championship wait and if anyone is deserving of guiding the Lions across the finish line it’s their ‘most valuable player’. Gonçalves, who has done a great job filling Bruno Fernandes’ shoes, began the campaign on fire. The 22-year-old attacking midfielder bagged 10 goals in his first eight appearances before cooling down. He’d find the net eight more times across 21 matches but did register in their 0-2 win at Rio Ave last time out.
