Luis Silva's goal just before half-time was all the hosts needed against a disjointed Spurs side that featured none the players from the 1-0 win over Manchester City last week.

Spurs coach Nuno Espirito Santo did give new signings Cristian Romero, Bryan Gil and Pierluigi Gollini their debuts.

Notable players such as Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, who scored the game winner against City over the weekend, did not travel to Portugal for the game.

The Europa Conference League is the new third-tier tournament of European competition, below the Champions League and the Europa League.

The second leg will be at Tottenham Stadium next Thursday.
