Sporting will look to transform their domestic fortunes when they host Gil Vicente in the Primeira Liga on Friday night (7pm kick-off, UK time).
Ruben Amorim’s men have captured the imagination in the Champions League, comprehensively putting Eintracht Frankfurt and Tottenham Hotspur to the sword by an aggregate 5-0 scoreline, but they’ve often flattered to deceive in the Primeira Liga this term. The Lisbon club are currently down in eighth and have only won three of their opening seven games.
Gil Vicente are only two places and a point below Sporting, so they will view Friday’s journey as a serious chance to make a statement and produce another run at the European places. The Roosters finished fifth last term and were placed into the Europa Conference League qualifiers as a result. AZ ultimately eliminated them, but they’ll harbour aspirations of having another bite at the cherry next summer.

Sporting team news
Talented academy midfielder Daniel Braganca is currently out for the foreseeable future after rupturing his ACL over the summer. He is joined in the physio room by Jovane Cabral and defensive stalwart Sebastian Coates, who came off injured in the most recent defeat to Boavista. The Sporting captain was subsequently omitted from Uruguay’s most recent squad for the international break.
Gil Vicente team news
Brian Araujo was shown a red card after the final whistle in Gil Vicente’s draw to Rio Ave and will subsequently miss this journey to Lisbon. Other than his suspended shot-stopper, it’s more or less as you were for Ivo Vieira from before the international pause.
