Juventus vs Sporting CP match preview

After causing a big upset in the round of 16, can Sporting Clube de Portugal repeat the feat, thereby reaching a first European semi-final since 2012?

Last month,Sporting knocked out Premier League leaders Arsenal on penalties.

Both legs ended in draws, 2-2 in Lisbon and 1-1 in London, with Pedro Gonçalves spectacularly equalising from all of 46 yards in the second leg.

So, a shootout was required, in which Sporting converted all five, meaning just one save from Antonio Adán saw his team progress.

This was massive for Rúben Amorim, because his side are currently fourth in the Primeira Liga, five points below Braga who occupy the final Champions League spot.

Given their underwhelming league position, the Leões are looking to this tournament to save their season, but will have to come through two extremely tough ties if they’re to feature in May’s final.

Juventus meantime were beaten 2-1 by Lazio on Saturday night, despite winning seven of their previous eight outings.

This leaves them seventh in Serie A, although they would leap all the way up to second if their 15 point penalty is overturned.

If it isn’t, Massimiliano Allegri’s team know winning this trophy is likely to be their best route back into the Champions League.

Thus, la Vecchia Signora are taking the Europa League ultra-seriously, battling to wins over Nantes and then Freiburg so far.

In the latter, Ángel Di María was the match-winner in Turin, before Dušan Vlahović and Federico Chiesa downed ten-men in Germany.

I Bianconeri are three-times winners of this tournament and have to be amongst the favourites to go all the way.

Will Juventus be too strong for Sporting?

Juventus team news

Defenders Danilo and Bremer would miss the second leg in Lisbon if booked here.

Leonardo Bonucci, who was booked as an unused substitute at the weekend, could return for his first appearance in almost five weeks.

At the other end of the field, Dušan Vlahović has only scored twice since 7 February, although both have come in this competition.

Ángel Di María has been Juve’s main man for goals in Europe this season, bagging a hat-trick in France and the winner when Freiburg visited Allianz Stadium.

Sporting CP team news

Sebastián Coates and Hidemasa Morita will return after both missed the away leg against Arsenal suspended.

Midfielder Manuel Ugarte was sent off in extra time of that tie, so is banned, while wing-backs Matheus Reis and Ricardo Esgaio are one caution away from a suspension of their own.

Trincão scored a hat-trick in Sunday’s 4-3 victory over Casa Pia, meaning he will be full of confidence.

Pedro Gonçalves took his tally to 18 for the season in that game, and he’ll remain key to Sporting’s hopes.
