Sporting CP Preview – Can Sporting hang in there?

The bookmakers have all made Sporting CP overwhelming underdogs ahead of this Champions League 1st leg clash at the Estádio José Alvalade but Tuesday night’s hosts have reason to be quietly confident about their chances against Manchester City.

Sporting are unbeaten in their last five matches overall in all competitions, picking up four wins in the process with Taca de Liga cup wins over Santa Clara and Benfica along with Liga Portugal victories against Belenenses and Famalicao.

On the Champions League front, Sporting CP ousted Borussia Dortmund for 2nd spot in Group C to progress through to the last 16 in this competition where they’ve won three out of their last four ties.

Manchester City Preview – Can Citizens bring back 1st leg lead?

Manchester City sit nine points clear at the top of the Premier League and undoubtedly pose Sporting CP a serious threat for Tuesday’s 1st leg clash at the Estádio José Alvalade, especially after winning 11 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

As predicted, Manchester City along with PSG, secured the top two positions in Group A and the English visitors will be upbeat about their chances ahead of this round of 16 1st leg in Portugal having also won three of their last four ties overall.

However, City have lost two of their last three Champions League ties away from home, losing at PSG and RB Leipzig, so perhaps the margin of victory (if indeed they win), may not be as convincing as many people are anticipating.
