Juventus vs Sporting Serie A giants Juventus, who reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League in very different styles, and Portuguese champion Sporting Lisbon will meet in the first match of the quarter-finals on Thursday.
On a sports trip to Turin, where Premier League leaders overcame local challenges to beat Arsenal and make progress in penalty shootouts, the controversial Juve campaign continued, calmly passing Freiburg.
After reaching the quarter-finals, Juventus enjoyed more mixed fortunes in a season of struggles both on and off the pitch. Back-to-back 1-0 wins against Inter and Verona followed a controversial Coppa Italia draw, and a loss to Lazio last weekend.
Juventus vs Sporting Kick-Off Time
NAME: Juventus – Sporting
DATE: 13 Apr 2023
TIME: 19:00 UTC
VENUE: Allianz Stadium, Turin, Italy
In Saturday evening’s 2-1 loss to Maurizio Sarri’s men, Juve fans watched the Serie A second-placed team put on fluid football associated with the classic ‘Sarrisimo’. In 2020, only one Scudetto took the helm after the season ended.
Instead, the combination of Max Allegri’s blunt pragmatism and his 15-point penalty for financial offenses has sent Juve down to seventh in Italy’s top flight. Eight points behind Milan in the Champions League final.
Despite that, they still have won 11 of their past 15 games and won their last three games in Europe without conceding a single goal after beating Bundesliga smashes Freiburg both home and away last month.
Like their quarterfinal rivals, Juventus were knocked out of the continent’s top club tournament in the autumn group stage. In their case, they lost five times to Sporting’s city rivals Benfica in six matches, including two.
The Bianconeri faced Lisbon’s greenbacks just twice in the UEFA tournament before their first match at the Allianz Stadium. Juve previously won 2-1 at home in their 2017-18 Champions League group stage match. Portugal drew 1-1.

Juventus vs Sporting Playing XI
Juventus possible starting lineup: Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Sandro; Cuadrado, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria; Vlahovic
Sporting Lisbon possible starting lineup: Adan; Diomande, Coates, St. Juste; Esgaio, Goncalves, Morita, Reis; Edwards, Chermiti, Trincao
After recovering from an illness that meant he missed his trip to Rome last weekend, Max Allegri will welcome two extreme players to his roster on Thursday as Moise Kean returns from a Serie A suspension and Mattia De Sciglio approaches full health from injury.
But midfielder Paul Pogba remains out of Juventus and Leandro Paredes will not be included after he publicly clashed with Allegri during an open practice session.
The Tuscan tactician may refer to a similar aspect of the defeat of Lazio. Former Porto defenders Alex Sandro and Arcadiusi Milik lined up to advance to the home team’s starting eleven.
Secondly, as long as he doesn’t partner with oval forward Dusan Blahovic, Angel Di Maria should be in support of Serbia, who have scored four goals in Europe this season. This is the common best in a single season.
Meanwhile, Sporting will not attack duo Jovan Cabral and Paulinho, who is recovering from muscle injury. That’s why Youssef Chermiti should be at the forefront of the series.
Uruguayan midfielder Manuel Ugarte, who was sent off in the rematch against Arsenal, will also miss the Lions’ tour of Turin as he is suspended.
However, Ruben Amorim can take Hector Bellerin back to the bench, who has returned to training due to a knee problem.

Sporting Lisbon Europa League form: D W D W
Sporting are winless in 15 away matches against Italy in Europe in their long and glorious history, including a defeat in Turin. In fact, their 11-losing streak in that span is setting a good precedent and we got to face them in practice on Thursday evening.
More recently, however, the reigning Portuguese champions have gone undefeated in their last 11 matches, taking seven wins and keeping Arsenal level. Partly thanks to Pedro Goncalves’ over-attack.
Experiencing the height of an inconsistent season, Sporting boasted a deadly counter-attacking threat and, despite being relegated from second in the Champions League group, have lost just one of their last six European fixtures and conceded three goals. period.
Gonçalves scored again in Sunday’s Primeira Liga surprise package, beating Casa Pia 4-3, and Francisco Trincao on loan from Barcelona scored a hat-trick in the 85th minute.
Ruben Amorim’s men are only fourth in the regional standings as their arch-rivals Benfica are on a winning streak at the top by a wide margin.
Nonetheless, home wins at Tottenham and away at Eintracht Frankfurt and a win over hitherto intangible Arsenal in the semi-finals demonstrate that Sporting can still surpass the Old Lady with a semi-final draw against Manchester United or the Europa League. Shows. Experts predict Sevilla next month.
