Match : Sporting CP vs Atletico Madrid
Competition : UEFA Europe League
Time / Date : 22:05h / 12 April 2018
Venue : Estádio José Alvalade
Sporting are 2-0 down from the first leg and will be without their top goalscorer when they welcome Atletico Madrid on Thursday. They have lost three of their last five matches in all competitions.
Atletico Madrid are in control of this tie and will look to book their place in the last four of the Europa League on Thursday. The Spanish side have only won one of their last four away matches.
Fábio Coentrão (Yellow card suspension), Bas Dost (Yellow card suspension), William Carvalho (Muscular problems), Bruno César (Knee injury), Rafael Leão (Muscle Injury), Cristiano Piccini (Wound), Daniel Podence (Fractured foot)
José Giménez (Malleolar injury), Filipe Luís (Fracture of the fibula)
Two of the previous three meetings between these two sides have finished level.
Sporting failed to transfer the momentum to Europe despite a superb run in the domestic league. They are coming into the second leg under some pressure having to overturn a 2 goal deficit with no away goals in the bag against one of the best defensive units in the world.
