Both teams opened their European campaign with a win last week. Spurs beat Marseille 2-0 thanks to Richarlison’s first two goals for the club, while Sporting claimed an impressive 0-3 win over Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt. It means the Portuguese side are top of Group D on goal difference going into matchday two.

Their start to their domestic season has been somewhat more mixed; they sit seventh in the Primeira Liga having drawn one and lost two of their opening six games, though they did beat Portimonense 4-0 at the weekend. 

Tottenham remain unbeaten in all competitions. They did not play this weekend due to the postponement of English football following the death of the Queen. 

This fixture will be something of a homecoming for Eric Dier. The English defender went through the Sporting Lisbon academy and made 27 appearances for the first team. Nor is he the only player taking on their former club in this game: Sporting forward Marcus Edwards was a much-hyped youngster at Spurs, but never broke through to the first team in his four years there.

The Sporting Lisbon vs Tottenham live stream will be the first competitive match between the two clubs. The home side have lost five and drawn one of their six Champions League matches against English teams, including defeats in all three at home. They tend to concede goals in this competition when at the José Alvalade Stadium too, letting in 11 last season. Spurs have not faced a Portuguese team in Europe’s top competition for 60 years, a 4-3 aggregate defeat in the semi-final to Benfica in 1962 being the last time such occasion. 

Will the extra few days between matches end up helping the visitors, or will the hosts continue from where they left off at the weekend? Find out by watching the Sporting Lisbon vs Tottenham live stream.
