Sporting CP vs Juventus Match Preview and Team News

Sporting CP

Sporting keeper Antonio Adan was tested by Federico Chiesa early on last week, while Wojciech Szczesny kept out efforts from Sebastian Coates and Pedro Goncalves in a goalless first half. Juve suffered a scare when Szczesny was forced to go off, but replacement Mattia Perin comfortably dealt with a long-range Goncalves shot. The Bianconeri snatched the lead when Federico Gatti proved an unlikely match-winner, poking home his first score for the club following a goalmouth scramble. Perin pulled off an outstanding double save at the other end to deny Goncalves and substitute Hector Bellerin. That was Sporting’s only loss in 13 outings, but Sunday’s Liga Portugal Bwin draw with Arouca at this venue will not scare Juve. Pedro Goncalves plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable, he deserves to play in a better team. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.


Juve is relying on lifting this trophy to get back into the Champions League next season. They were rocked by a deduction of 15 points in Serie A, and away losses to Lazio and Sassuolo, either side of beating Sporting, make a top-four finish unlikely. In fact, a poor domestic record on the road has featured six defeats from 15 outings, with only 13 goals scored, and the same number conceded. They also lost all three Champions League group-stage games away from home but claimed convincing wins when visiting Nantes and Freiburg in this competition. Juve does have decent attacking options, such as Dusan Vlahovic, Arkadiusz Milik, and veteran playmaker Angel Di Maria. However, a well-drilled and tenacious defense remains their best asset, which could come in handy here. Filip Kostić is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Moise Kean is a new reinforcement, and this guy is expected to score as many goals as possible.
