Sporting Clube de Portugal were held to a 0-0 draw at home to FC Basel 1893 in their Group G opener.

Though it was a fifth meeting in less than five years between the sides, it did not follow the pattern of the recent past. Sporting had won all four previous meetings without conceding a goal and, although they once again kept a clean sheet, Ricardo Sá Pinto's side were made to work particularly hard after Xandão's dismissal.
