Arsenal vs Sporting CP: Lineups and Live Updates

After a nail-biting contest between Arsenal and Sporting Lisbon in Portugal, the two organizations go head-to-head again to find the tie winner at the Emirates Stadium.

Some reckless defensive mistakes, particularly defending set-pieces, saw Mikel Arteta's men drop two crucial points but the Gunners will still be satisfied with their trip to Lisbon. The North London outfit will be the happiest of both teams as they welcome Sporting into their backyard.

A five-point lead at the top of the Premier League table will comfort Arteta as he seeks to replicate the team's Premier League success in Europe. With a seat in the Champions League table almost secure for Arsenal, the red-and-white club will be vying to win the Europa League this summer.

The Gunners have scored at least 2 goals in 4 fixtures and if they continue this run, the English side could emerge victorious in the tie.

After a brave fight at home against the Premier League leaders, Sporting Lisbon will be looking to repeat their performance from last week as they seek another upset in Europe.

Fighting for a first Europa League quarter-final spot since the 2017-18 season, the Portuguese side has a huge task ahead of them, given how brutal Arsenal has been this summer.

Sporting boss Amorim will be hoping for a magical night as his team is on a winning streak in their last five fixtures. However, what will be a matter of concern for the team in green and white is that they have not got any wins in England since 2004-05.

Since the iconic win against Middlesbrough in 2004-05, the Portuguese outfit has failed to win a game in England in nine attempts and Amorim will be hoping to change the situation.
