Eintracht were European Cup runners-up in 1960 but had not previously reached the modern version of the competition until they qualified for this season's edition as winners of the Europa League.
There were 51,000 boisterous fans crammed into the Deutsche Bank Park for the occasion and they almost got off to the dream start when Randal Kolo Muani pounced on a soft back pass but the French forward was thwarted by goalkeeper Antonio Adan.
Sporting were awarded a penalty in the 15th minute when Edwards went down in the area but the referee overturned his decision after being advised by VAR to review the play on the pitchside monitor.
