This will represent Sporting's first competitive fixture of the season, while Aberdeen have already been in the thick of things, having completed six rounds of matches in the Scottish Premier League.
The Dons were soundly defeated 3-0 by Motherwell in their last fixture on Sunday, which was rather disappointing, considering how well they had started the season.
Aberdeen beat Norwegian side Viking 2-0 to progress to this stage of the competition, while Sporting Lisbon are here by virtue of their higher ranking.

Sporting Lisbon vs Aberdeen Prediction
Aberdeen started this season impressively and their 3-0 loss to Motherwell ended a run of six consecutive wins in all competitions.
They will be facing a Sporting Lisbon side that have lost two of their key players in Marcos Acuna and Matheus Pereira, sold to Sevilla and West Brom respectively, although they replaced them adequately.
Sporting Lisbon will fancy their chances of getting into the playoff rounds and, although Aberdeen deserve praise for coming this far, the Portuguese side will likely be a bridge too far for the Scottish side.
