Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
OMT: Marítimo 0-1 SPORTING, Funchal, 19.11.06 - PL Round 10
After two weeks of break the Portuguese League is back with a tough match for us. Marítimo is traditionally a hard team to beat in Madeira and this year they seem to have a solid team. Apart from this Sporting has a few players injured (Yannick Djaló and Tiago) and others which are not confirmed yet to be 100% fit for the match (Tonel and Ricardo).
Paulo Bento called the 18 year old keeper Rui Patrício for the first time this season and he might even play if Ricardo does not recover from a slight injury.
Here is the list of the players called:
Goalkeepers: Ricardo and Rui Patrício.
Defenders: Abel, Miguel Garcia, Marco Caneira, Tonel, Anderson Polga and Ronny.
Midfielders: Custódio, Paredes, Carlos Martins, Farnerud, João Moutinho and Nani.
Forwards: Bueno, Alecsandro and Liedson.
