Sporting Lisbon Vs Chelsea Preview UCL Today At 7.45PM by Casey001(m): 12:54pm On Sep 30, 2014
sporting Lisbon vs Chelsea Uefa champion League preview Today at 7.45pm .

Both of these sides started their Group G campaign with 1-1 draws and Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon can be said to have dropped two points against Slovenia’s Maribor, because they were the favourites in that match.

Premiership side Chelsea also who were expected to get the three points at home against German side Schalke - but also dropped points when their match ended in a draw.

Sporting Lisbon finished in second place in the Portuguese league last season and qualified for the Champions League automatically. They started their season brightly with two wins and four draws. Their last match was at home against FC Porto some four days ago and even though they are still unbeaten have six points less then leaders Benfica in their domestic standings.

It needs to be pointed out that Sporting Lisbon were so close to a win and only had to settle for the draw in the last few minutes against Maribor away in the first round of the Champions League. Now they have an uphill task against Chelsea and also Schalke still to come. However, coach Silva insisted he has confidence in his team and that they can still remain unbeaten after this match on Tuesday night.

The team news for Sporting Lisbon is that they will start this match without the services of defender Lopes who is out injured.

Meanwhile for Chelsea, they have played well from the start of the English Premiership and have managed five wins and a draw away against Champions Manchester City.

It should be noted that Chelsea averaged three goals per game and last weekend they beat Aston Villa by 3-0. Chelsea consolidated their position at the top as they have a three points lead over second place Southampton.

So to date their only match where Chelsea have not performed well was the draw against Schalke in their opening match of the Champions League at home. After that match it was business as usual as they beat Bolton 2-1 in the League Cup.

As for the Chelsea team news, Mourinho is expected to name a strong lineup here with only Remy could come into the side for Diego Costa who is likely to be exhausted.

OUR PREDICTION >> Sporting Lisbon 1-3 Chelsea

Ha. Defenders are so afraid of Costa, they just kick the ball away whenever he's around.
