Sporting Lisbon vs Borussia Dortmund Live: Match Preview

The game is likely to be intense, with both teams sensing a chance to get ahead in the qualification race. Sporting Lisbon and Borussia Dortmund, both are tied up at 6 points. A victory for either of the team would imply that a direct rival will drop points.

Ajax have already secured their place, which means that there is only one spot for the Round of 16. Considering the significance of the game, the Portuguese would prefer to be more pragmatic than adventures in this game. While Dortmund will be trying to play their free-flowing, expansive football.

The Germans also have a history in their favour in this game. In the previous three games, they have emerged victorious against the Portuguese side. Not only this, only Galatasaray have been beaten more times (4) by Dortmund than Sporting Lisbon. The Leões have also lost most games in Europe against German opposition.

Sporting Lisbon vs Borussia Dortmund Players to watch out for

Pablo Sarabia

The former PSG man will have to be the playmaker for his side to create chances in this game. He also has more experience than his teammates at the top level, thus they will also look up to him for inspiration.

Borussia Dortmund

Manuel Akanji

In recent years Dortmund have managed to play a lot of free-flowing football but their defence has always been leaky. If they are to win this game, they will have to stay strong at the back. Without Hummels, Akanji has to be the defensive talisman for his team.
