Ruben Amorim’s men were given a tough game on the opening weekend of the Primeira Liga, facing Braga who finished fourth last season, and the two sides played out a thrilling encounter which ended 3-3 and saw two late goals scored. Rio Ave, on the other hand, were beaten 1-0 by Vizela on their return to the top flight after a year out.

Sporting CP team news

Antonio Adan made his return from injury last weekend and went straight back into the starting XI, picked ahead of Franco Israel in goal. The Spaniard will continue in goal even after conceding three goals and Amorim may be tempted to name the same starting XI as the one that faced Braga, meaning Francisco Trincao and Pedro Goncalves partner up behind Paulinho. Manuel Ugarte also featured from the bench having been a doubt, meaning Sporting have a fully fit squad from which to choose. However, Daniel Braganca remains out after suffering an ACL injury in May.

Rio Ave team news

Rio Ave also have a fresh squad from which to choose after coming through their defeat to Vizela unscathed, other than the result of course. In their Primeira Liga return, Luis Freire lined up with a 3-5-2, partnering Aziz and Andre Pereira up front, with Vitor Gomes a holding midfielder. Rio Ave are perhaps a bit lucky to not come into this game without a suspension, seeing seven players booked last weekend, including three of their substitutes.

Scoreline prediction: Sporting CP 3-0 Rio Ave
