After impressively winning 3-0 against French side Olympique de Marseille last Wednesday in their opening UEFA Youth League group-stage fixture, Spurs’ Under 19 side face Portuguese side Sporting Club de Portugal, on Tuesday. The game which starts at 11:00am and which takes place at the Stadium Aurelio Pereira, is both sides’ second group game of the competition, with Sporting Club de Portugal drawing 1-1 with Eintracht Frankfurt, in their first group game. Sporting Club de Portugal have a very good Academy set-up, and this will be a very difficult game for Spurs. However, the win and performance from Spurs against Olympique de Marseille last week was impressive, and a similar performance from Spurs tomorrow would hopefully see Spurs get a good result. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Gunter, Abbott, Dorrington, Andiyapan, Ashcroft, Craig (c), John, Mundle, Donley, Mathurin, Williams.
Subs from: Maguire, Linton, Chaplin, Hall, McKnight, Bloxham, Ajayi.
Previous meeting: N/A.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Rodrigo Ribeiro. The Sporting Club de Portugal forward scored their only goal of the game, in their opening group match of the 2022/23 UEFA Youth League, and Rodrigo Ribeiro has already played for the Sporting Club de Portugal first team.
