Sporting CP team news

Sporting have a number of issues in defence. Jeremiah St. Juste is absent while Goncalo Inacio and Luis Neto are both doubts after limping off in the 4-0 victory over Portimonense.

Jovane Cabral and Daniel Braganca are also injured. 23-year-old forward Marcus Edwards could appear against his former club, having grabbed a goal and an assist in Sporting's opening 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt last week.

Tottenham team news

Spurs did not visit Manchester City on Saturday following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, so they've had six days since the victory over Marseille to prepare for their trip to Portugal.

Richarlison netted twice in that victory and may retain his starting spot ahead of Dejan Kulusevski, though the form of Son Heung-min - yet to score this season - is a growing cause for concern.

Lucas Moura is the only injury absentee, giving manager Antonio Conte an otherwise fully fit squad to choose from.

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Sporting CP

Tottenham Starting 11 (3-4-3): Lloris, Romero, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Perisic; Richarlison, Kane, Son.
Bench: Forster, Lenglet, Sanchez, Tanganga, Sessegnon, Doherty, Spence, Bissouma, Skipp, Sarr, Gil, Kulusevski.

Sporting CP vs Tottenham prediction

Tottenham were poor for large parts of their win over Marseille, only gaining the ascendancy when Chancel Mbemba was sent off at the start of the second half. However, they remain unbeaten so far this season and should turn in a better performance having unexpectedly gained a weekend of rest.

Sporting made an excellent start in Group D by smashing Europa League holders Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0, a crucial result in what is tipped to be quite an open group.

The Portuguese side have won their last three games by an aggregate of 9-0 but will face a sterner examination of their Champions League credentials on Tuesday night.

Prediction: Sporting CP 1-2 Tottenham
