Oliver Glasner produced heroics last season as Die Adler won their first piece of continental silverware for 42 years, taking home the Europa League at the expense of Rangers in May’s sweltering Seville showpiece, which also granted them a backdoor entrance to this season’s Champions League.
Sporting CP enter Europe in a concerning state having seen two of their best midfield operators pillaged by Premier League clubs, with Wolves capturing Matheus Nunes and Fulham luring Joao Palhinha to Craven Cottage. Still, Ruben Amorim is a crafty tactician and will be relishing this match-up.
Eintracht Frankfurt team news
Glasner has a few concerns in the physio room ahead of this fixture, with Filip Kostic’s successor, Luca Pellegrini, currently nursing a hamstring injury, while versatile centre-back Almamy Toure is set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a knee injury against Hertha Berlin. Free agent Aurelio Buta will also have to wait a little longer for his Frankfurt debut as the convalescing full-back continues to make a comeback from knee surgery back in April.
Sporting CP team news
Academy jewel Daniel Braganca is set for a protracted stint on the treatment tables after rupturing his ACL in early July, which only exacerbates the midfield crisis currently plaguing Amorim’s early-season form. Jovane Cabral is also unavailable. The onus, therefore, falls on Pote to produce the goods once again. The two-capped Portugal international was the Lisbon club’s trump card in 2021/22 as he netted four Champions League goals, the most any single Sporting player has amassed in a sole campaign in this competition.
