Juventus will face Sporting Lisbon in Quarter-final 1st leg of the 2022/2023 UEFA Europa League which can be watched via live streaming on CBS Sports, Univision on Thursday, April 13 2023, ET.
This match is predicted to be fierce because both teams have the same ambition to win this prestigious trophy.
The home team qualified for this round after eliminating Freiburg with an aggregate score of 3-0. Their winning goals were scored by Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa. Juventus also have a good record at home in the Europa League having not lost since 2014.
Meanwhile, the visitors advanced to the quarter-finals after beating Arsenal on penalties 5-3. They drew 2-2 in the first leg and 1-1 in the second, with Pote being their sole goal scorer. Sporting is also unbeaten in the last 11 matches in all competitions.
The last meeting between the two teams ended in a 1-1 draw in the Champions League group stage in October 2017. Bruno César put Sporting CP ahead, before Gonzalo Higuaín equalized for Juventus.
Juventus had to fight hard to qualify for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) via Serie A after losing 2-1 to Lazio last week. They still have hope of appearing in the UCL next season, but that depends on their victory in the Europa League (UEL), a trophy they last won in 1992/93 under the name UEFA Cup. At that time, they beat the Portuguese team in the quarter-finals.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men can draw motivation from that history against Sporting Lisbon, but what’s even more important is the fact they have never lost at home in the UEL. The Bianconeri will definitely want to maintain that record and are encouraged by the fact they have won three European games in a row without conceding a goal.
On the other hand, Sporting Lisbon is also hoping to qualify for the UCL via UEL, as their chances in the Primeira Liga are slim despite their 4-3 win over Casa Pia last weekend. Sporting showed impressive performance in the UEL by eliminating Arsenal on penalties in the round of 16. They also have quality players such as Pedro Gonçalves, Nuno Santos and João Palhinha.
This match will certainly be exciting and tense because both teams have high motivation to advance to the semifinals. Who will come out as the winner? We’ll just wait for the results.
