Liverpool vs Sporting Lisbon Match Preview
These teams have been serving up some entertaining spectacles in pre-season so far and the New York fans could be treated to plenty of thrills and spills at the Yankee Stadium.
After a couple of easy wins against Tranmere and Bradford back home in the north of England, Liverpool have lost twice on their tour of the United States – 3-2 to their manager Jurgen Klopp’s former club Borussia Dortmund in Notre Dame, Indiana and then 2-1 to Sevilla at Fenway Park, Boston, which is, of course, the home ground of their owners.
Of course, the Champions League winners have been without their established front three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino plus goalkeeper Alisson due to their international tournament commitments this summer. Three of the quartet, the exception being Mane, are expected to return for the FA Community Shield at Wembley on August 4.
But the Reds have three more friendly games before then, the first being this one against Sporting Lisbon who have flown to the United States especially for this match. They will also play Valencia at home before taking on Benfica for the Portuguese Super Cup near Faro.
The main talk regarding Sporting this summer has been about their star man Bruno Fernandes and a potential move to the Premier League, most likely Manchester United, but that could hinge on whether Paul Pogba is sold to Real Madrid.
Fernandes has netted in all three of Sporting’s warm-up games, none of which they won, and the way goals have flowed when these clubs have played so far suggests backing another high-scoring contest could prove profitable.
