Europa League: Juventus

Juventus are currently at the seventh of their domestic league standings, which is the result of their underwhelming run in the contest. They failed to be at their best this season, which brings them at the mid-table. Coming into this match, it looks like Juventus is not having a good momentum, as they are from a 1-0 defeat on their previous game. With that, Juventus is hopeful to bounce back in this important match. This is not impossible though, as they had remarkable improvement over the past weeks. This is what they need to do if they want to add a trophy in their names. Angel Di Maria is expected to lead Juventus in this important match, as he has been exceptional in their campaign.

Juventus will be without Wojciech Szczesny, who withdrawn for his squad due to a chest pain he felt during the first leg. Alex Sandro on the other hand is returning here after serving his Serie A suspension. Paul Pogba, and Federico Chiesa on the other hand are finally available in this match.

Sporting Lisbon

Europa League: Sporting Lisbon

Sporting is doing quite well in their domestic league, as they are sitting at the fourth of their league table. However, they have been inconsistent all season, which is their number one problem coming into this game. They are fortunate though that their last match ended in a 1-1 draw despite their issue. They were held in a 1-1 draw against Arouca on their previous match, and are needing to double their efforts to win this match. They are currently down by one goal, which adds up to their burden here. However, it is just a one goal, so they still have a chance to overturn their results. Sporting is a team who is capable of upsetting even giant squads here. However, if they want for that result, they need to give their all in this match, as Juventus is a tough squad.

Marcus Edwards, and Jeremiah St. Juste, who are both unavailable during the first leg, are both expected to play in this match. However, Paulinho, Daniel Braganca, and Jovane Cabral all remains on the sideline.
