Tottenham Hotspur and Sporting CP face off on Wednesday in a UEFA Champions League Group D showdown at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

When these two teams faced off on September 13th it was Sporting CP that secured the 2-0 victory. Sporting scored goals in the 90th and 93rd minute to pick up the three points. Sporting had 55 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Tottenham Hotspur had 45 percent of the possession and five shots on target. 

Tottenham currently sits in 1st place in the group having picked up seven points. Tottenham’s last Champion League game came against Eintracht Frankfurt, and they were able to secure a 3-2 victory. All three goals were scored in the first 28 minutes. On Saturday, against Newcastle, Tottenham didn’t look exactly dominant, and they were defeated 2-1. Harry Kane scored in the 54th minute, but it was too late as they were already down 2-0. Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison are both dealing with injuries right now, and they won’t be able to go in this game. In this game, Tottenham needs to be the team gets the first goal. 

On the other side of this matchup is Sporting CP who sit in 3rd place in the group having picked up six points. Their last Champion League game came against Marseille, and they were defeated 2-0. Ricardo Esgaio picked up a red card in the 19th minute and Pedro Gonclaves picked up a red card in the 60th minute. Both players will be suspended for this game. On Saturday, they faced off against Casa Pia, and they were able to secure a 3-1 victory. Sporting is very shorthanded and if they want a chance the defense is going to need to make this a low-scoring game. 

Sporting CP’s defense is so shorthanded heading into this game, and I think they are going to really struggle here. Tottenham scored two goals in the last game against Sporting CP, and they will score at least that here. This is going to be an easy victory for Tottenham Hotspur, as they pick up another three points. Back Tottenham Hotspur -1 to cash.
