Sporting CP will be looking to go top of the Primeira Liga table when they host Portimonense on Wednesday at 9pm (UK time).

The defending champions are currently embroiled in one of Europe’s tightest title races, sitting level on points with Primeira Liga leaders Porto. Sporting are currently unbeaten in the league and have dropped just four points from their opening 15 matches, two of which came in a draw with Porto. Behind Porto on goal difference, Sporting will leapfrog their title rivals with a positive result on Wednesday and could put pressure on the Dragons, who face third-placed Benfica on Thursday. Portimonense, meanwhile, are sixth and fighting for European football.
