Sporting CP’s transfer window so far
As mentioned, Sporting CP played so recently and boss Ruben Amorim only made five changes to his team during the 1-1 draw with Union Saint-Gilloise, but he has 30 players to work with during their training camp in the Algarve so can expect to name a stronger XI against Villarreal. But they will be without Daniel Braganca, who suffered an ACL injury in a training match last Saturday and has since undergone surgery.
Sporting have also been busy in the summer transfer window so far, bringing in seven new players, including Pedro Porro and Ruben Vinagre who made their loan stays permanent. Also joining are Jeremiah St Jute, Hidemasa Morita, Rochinha, Franco Israel and Fransisco Trinao, the latter being the latest arrival, on loan from Barcelona.
Villarreal’s transfer window so far
It’s been a quiet window for Villarreal so far with Jose Luis Morales and Pepe Reina the only arrivals, and the club look set to be more active in losing players than they are bringing them in. But for now they have a lot of their stars in training ahead of the game against Sporting, with Pau Torres, Juan Foyth, Gero Rulli, Boulaye Dia, Samu Chukwueze and Pervis Estupiñán all recently returning following delayed holidays due to international call-ups.
Scoreline prediction: Sporting CP 1-1 Villarreal
