Sporting Lisbon players will be gunning for Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko in tonight's Europa League clash.

Dzeko has unwittingly upset some Sporting players by saying after City's last round win at Porto that he didn't know any of the players he will face.

Sporting's Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patrício said: "I know Dzeko very well. I've played against him and thank God I've beaten him when Portugal beat Bosnia 6-2 last November. We are Sporting and tomorrow he will know better Sporting players, for our will and fight."
