Sporting-OL : Terminer le stage en beauté
This Sunday evening (9pm CEST), OL will play a fifth pre-season friendly, against Sporting CP. It's an opportunity for our players to continue their preparation before the resumption of Ligue 1 Uber Eats, on 7 August.

THE CONTEXT 

 

In training in Murcia since the beginning of the week, OL will leave Spain to reach Portugal. Peter Bosz's men will face Sporting, on their home turf in Lisbon. After a promising match against Villarreal (2-2), the squad will want to conntinue their good momentum, before facing FC Porto on 31 July, and then starting the Ligue 1 Uber Eats campaign the following week.

 

 

THE OPPONENT 

 

Undefeated during almost the entire Portuguese championship last season (only losing on the penultimate matchday, against Benfica), the Lisbon team were crowned champions, 19 years after their last title. Led by Pedro Goncalves, who finished as top scorer of the competition, Sporting qualified for the Champions League. During the summer, our opponents have been strengthened with the arrival of Ricardo Esgaio, Zouhair Feddal, Vitorino Antunes, Nuno Santos, Tabata and Paulinho.
