Angered by failure in the Champions League, Simeone's wards easily dealt in the spring part of the LE with Copenhagen and Lokomotiv, winning all four games. And now they are ready for the visit of sporting. And on home ground the Spaniards are missing this season quite a bit. So the Portuguese are not to be envied...
The team under the management of Jorge Jesus will be very difficult. Not only that, her rival is in great shape, can not be said about the lisboners, so they are still far better perform out. Sporting conceded away this season's Europa League in six of his last nine fights. But Atletico knows how and loves to score...

The forecast is obvious – a confident victory of owners. No matter how hard sporting, it is unlikely that his players will be able to do something with a team that is in second place in the La Liga (after Barcelona), and deals confidently with each successive opponent in a LE without much effort.
