Sporting Lisbon and Tottenham Hotspur face off on Tuesday in a Group D Champions League showdown at Estadio Jose Alvalade. 

Sporting Lisbon currently sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up three points. Sporting Lisbon faced off against Eintracht Frankfurt, and they looked quite impressive, scoring three goals. They scored goals in the 65th, 67th, and 82nd minutes to secure the victory. They had five shots on goal and 57 percent of the possession. On Saturday, Sporting faced off against Portimonense, and they scored four goals on the way to the victory. One problem for Sporting heading into this game is they have some key injuries at the defender. Jeremiah St Juste, Goncalo, Inacio, and Luis Neto were all hurt in the last few games and all three are in real doubt in this game. In this game, if they want a chance, the defense is going to need to be good. 

On the other side of this matchup Tottenham Hotspur who are tied for first place in the standings having picked up three points. Tottenham faced off against Marseille in the first game of the Champions League and were able to win 2-0. Tottenham didn’t actually look that impressive, but Richarilson scored goals in the 76th and 81st minutes to secure the victory. Tottenham had only two shots on goal, but both goals went into the back of the net. Tottenham’s weekend game against Manchester City was postponed, so the last game was that Champions League game last Wednesday. Tottenham is pretty healthy heading into this game with the only real injury with Lucas Moura who won’t be with the team for this game. 

Tottenham isn’t a team you want to have a shortage of defenders against, but that is the case with Sporting Lisbon who are really banged up heading into this game Look for Tottenham to get on the board early, and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Sporting is also going to score a goal or two and this game will go over. Back the over 3.5 goals to cash here.
