The big one is Sporting-Barcelona in Lisbon on Wednesday night, with Jorge Jesus’s Lions, unbeaten in 11 games this season, welcoming the rampant La Liga leaders. Before that, on Tuesday night Porto attempt to get their campaign back on track as they travel to Monaco, where old boys João Moutinho and Radamel Falcao will come up against the team they shined so brightly for. Like Porto, Benfica will try and recover from a home defeat on Matchday One as they take on Basel in Switzerland.
