Sporting will debut today in the 2019/20 edition of the Portuguese Football I Liga.
Sporting make their debut in the Liga after champions Benfica beat Paços de Ferreira (5-0) and FC Porto lost at Gil Vicente (2-1).
Sporting Braga, fourth-placed last season, are also making their first league match today, hosting Moreirense, the 2018/19 revelation team, who finished in sixth place.
In the other meeting of the day, Boavista receives Desportivo das Aves, and the Ave-Vitória de Guimarães River, also scheduled for today, was postponed until September 8, due to a problem at the Vila Condenses stadium.
The first round continues on Monday, with Vitória de Setúbal receiving Tondela, two teams that only ensured their maintenance in the last rounds of last season.
