Leonardo Jardim knows Sunday's opponents very well, having managed the Sportinguistas during the 2013-14 season, which saw them qualify for the UEFA Champions League. João Moutinho, the AS Monaco midfielder, came through Sporting's academy set-up.
Jorge Jesus' Sporting side finished the 2016/2017 league campaign in third place, behind Porto and Benfica.
During the 2016/2017 pre-season, the two sides met in Lausanne where the Monegasques won 4-1 with goals from Germain, Falcao (x2) and Carillo.
