Barcelona come into this final group game having already sealed the top spot in their group, but they won’t want to slack off at the final hurdle and have some pride to win back after they failed to win at the weekend.
The hosts haven’t been at their best recently though. They were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Celta Vigo at the weekend and have only won one of their last four outings in all competitions. One of these was a very respectable draw away to Juventus though, a point which all but secured the top spot finish that they expect.
Sporting Lisbon’s chances of qualifying from this group aren’t over yet, but they need a miracle. They come into this final group game a point adrift of Juventus in 2nd, and would need a duo of unlikely results to move up the rankings.
They are in good form though, and won’t quite have given up hope yet. They have won their last four on the bounce and are unbeaten in eight competitive games, including an impressive draw at home to Juventus. Generally, they have held their own well against the two European giants occupying their Champions League group, so they are looking like promising contenders in the Europa League.
Barcelona vs Sporting CP News
Machester United: Ernesto Valverde will be missing wingers Arda Turan and Ousmane Dembele and center backs Javier Mascherano and Samuel Umtiti for this match at home to Sporting. With Real Madrid and El Clasico on the horizon, this could be a time to make a few changes for the Catalans.
Sporting CP: Jorge Jesus has an injury to left back Jonathan Silva that will keep him out of this very important match.
