Sporting Lisbon v Barcelona– 19.45 GMT kickoff
Tonight will be a real test to see just where Sporting Lisbon are at. With both Barcelona and Juventus in the group, it was never going to be easy. They did make a flying start however, going 3 goals up against Olympiakos. A lapse in concentration let the latter back into the game with 2 goals n as many minutes, but Lisbon held on for the win.
Any lapses in concentration tonight will be paid for heavily as Barcelona will want to make their class tell and put this one to bed.
Despite the departure of Neymar, Barcelona has shown no signs of deterioration in their play. They’ve won seven in a row and put Juventus well and truly in their place with a 3-0 beating in their first group game. They look like a squad with a point to prove this season as many thought they would falter. They are a team with tremendous firepower, having scored 23 goals in their last 7 games alone.
Lisbon are not short on attacking capabilities and won’t be holding back in their attempt to gain a home victory this evening. They’ve netted in 6 of their last 7 home games and will be very keen to try to shake up the Spanish squad.
Sporting Lisbon v Barcelona- summary
The stats show that Barcelona have won both previous meetings with Sporting Lisbon. We’ve seen little in their recent form to suggest that their 100% record won’t remain intact after tonight’s match.
