Sporting and Porto have been drawn in the same group, and only one will be able to qualify out of the group, so the winner of this match will probably also go on to win the group.
Sporting are leading the league on goal difference over Porto and will hope to inflict a blow on their opponents title chances by beating them in the league cup too.
Sporting manager Leonardo Jardim looks to field a full strength squad with leading goalscorer Fredy Montero, who has scored 13 times this season, leading the line. Midfielder Andre Martins will face a late test to determine his fitness, otherwise Victor Gerson Magrão is likely to complete the midfield also featuring William Carvalho and Adrien.
Porto manager Paulo Fonseca also looks to do one over old rivals Sporting. In form striker Jackson Martinez has been touted with a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Chelsea both interested, however Porto’s leading goalscorer with 12 goals will face Sporting first.
A win over Sporting would take Porto to the semi-finals of the cup. Porto are only behind on goal difference in the league and will hope that a victory in the league could add extra pressure on Sporting
The match will kick-off on Sunday, 29 December at 20.45 UK time.
