In a top-of-the-table clash Portuguese champions Sporting take on current Primeira Liga leaders Porto on Friday at 8.15pm (UK time).

Sporting nearly made history with an ‘Invincible’ season as they won the title in 2020/21, but they just came unstuck in the penultimate game to Benfica. Porto are now looking to go one better and see the job through, with Sergio Conceicao’s Dragoes currently unbeaten this season, and leading the charge ahead of second-placed Sporting — with just six points separating these Tres Grandes rivals.
