Sporting to Win
Although they did have a few questionable results recently and overall in domestic championship, Sporting remains in good position ahead of the last Champions League round against Frankfurt.
Meanwhile, Frankfurt is not doing much better lately, but unlike Sporting who can go through with a drew, Frankfurt needs a win here. So, they will have to take some risks and we expect Sporting to take advantage of that and, once again, beat Frankfurt to secure the next stage.
Over 2.5 Total Goals
We already saw three goals in the first duel between Sporting Lisbon and Eintracht Frankfurt in the group stages of Champions League, so we can see it happening again on Tuesday.
After all, this is a deciding match for both teams and we will see them play offensive football, especially Frankfurt who needs to win. So, we expect that to lead to at least three goals being scored.

Sporting vs Frankfurt Preview: Latest Form, Team News, and Possible Lineups
This is a duel that will determine which team makes it to the next round. So, let's take a closer look at both of them ahead of it:
With four wins in the last six rounds of Portuguese league, Sporting seems to be getting into form there after a pretty slow start. Overall, the team is in fifth place right now, but getting closer to the top. Meanwhile, Sporting is second in their Champions League group, but they need to avoid a loss in the last round to get to the next stage.
When it comes to team news, Sporting CP will be without Daniel Braganca, Luis Neto, Paulinho and Hidemasa Morita through injuries.
Sporting Predicted Lineup:
Adan – Inacio, Coates, Reis – Porro, Alexandropoulos, Ugarte, Santos – Trincao, Edwards, Goncalves
Just like their upcoming opponent, Frankfurt has four wins in the last six matches in their domestic championship and they are also fifth in the standings in Bundesliga. And like Sporting, they also have seven points in their Champions League group, but since they have worse h2h record against both Sporting and Tottenham, they require a win in the last round to get to the next phase.
Meanwhile, Christopher Lenz and Makoto Hasebe are out with injuries right now, while Ansgar Knauff is questionable.
Frankfurt Predicted Lineup:
Trapp – Jakic, Ndicka, Tuta – Knauff, Sow, Kamada, Pellegrini – Gotze, Lindstrom – Kolo Muani
