Sporting CP and Arsenal had full attacking forces as the game began.

Before to kickoff, I didn’t have big expectations for this game, but it’s developed into a terrific match. The Gunners are desperate for victory after the draw in Lisbon.
Smith Rowe is entering the game in an effort to add some energy as both fullbacks are launching forward.
Starting to seem lanky, sporting. Nelson receives the ball from Arsenal at the edge of the box, but his shot always rose.
Arsenal has used two substitutes once more. Correction: Partey, Gabriel, and Smith Rowe replace Kiwior, Jorginho, and Nelson in a triple substitution.
Morita scores an own goal to end a terrible few minutes. Xhaka was attempting to cross the ball to Martinelli from outside the Sporting penalty area.
Adan was completely caught off guard when the ball struck Morita, who was standing on the edge of his own penalty area and facing his own goal. Morita nevertheless managed to sneak into the bottom corner past Adan. What bad luck that is.
In his own half, Martinelli takes up the ball and brilliantly bursts through to the Sporting box.
He goes around the goalkeeper, but St. Juste does an outstanding job of coming back and snuffing out the opportunity before the Arsenal player can shoot into an open goal.
Zinchenko, who summarized Arsenal’s performance as having some wonderful frissons of class but also doing some stupid things, has been replaced by Tomiyasu by Arteta.

After a cautious tackle by Morita, Martinelli charges into the Sporting half with the ball at his feet.
With only Antonio Adan standing between him and the goal, the Brazilian runs clean through on goal but is stopped by a stunning save from the quickly backing Jeremiah St Juste. As if they had just scored a goal, the defender and his colleagues celebrate their defense.
