OMT: UCL Group Stage Matchday 6: SPORTING vs Spartak Moscow, Alvalade, 05.12.2006




UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Group Stage Matchday 6
SPORTING CP v
Spartak Moscow

Estádio José Alvalade, Lisbon, 20h45 (CET), Tuesday 05.12.2006


This is definitely the most important game of our season so far. There is no space to fail as a defeat would kick us out of Europe and not only this team does not deserve that as well as the club is not in a position to afford it.

We are definitely passing through a tough period in what concerns the lack of flow of our game but I believe we have enough guts and talent to beat Spartak and book our place in the UEFA Cup, where we have good chances to do a great run.

Força SPORTING!!!

According to A Bola this is the starting XI that Paulo Bento will present tonight:



I wouldn't be surprised if this is it but I just hope that his stubborness in keeping Bueno upfront will finally give its fruits.


PS: Romagnoli and Joăo Alves will also be on the bench.

Yes kleber, we already know that according to you Benfica is in the Top 8 clubs of Europe at the moment and that Kikin is as good as Samuel Eto'o...I've even heard that Barca is planning to get him during the transfer window...and maybe also Simăozinho for 40M Euros.

I know Simăo will not go anywhere simply because he is not worth a third of what you are asking for him.

I don't think we've watched the same match but I've noticed before that you and I have slightly different ideas of what good football is.

Now, please go and talk about your glorious victory tomorrow night in Old Trafford with your lot, will you?

Sure, I even think FS could have played him alone against us on Friday as that would have been enough to beat us...well...maybe with Kikin upfront to give him a hand.

With a group like yours you should have qualified without problems so if I were you I would keep quiet about that.

Yes, but you were luckier than we were in the draw...or...wait...you will find a way to tell me that Man Utd and Celtic are actually better than Bayern and Inter :dielaugh:

Of course that A Bola was wrong and as usual Paulo Bento made some big changes...Here's the line-up of the game starting right now:

1-2 (HT)

Sporting started the game almost as if we were still playing against Benfica and Spartak, without nothing to lose just strolled to a very early 2-0 lead after 16' :eekani:

To make things even better, Miguel Garcia, the only Right Back left after the injuries of Caneira and Abel against Inter, got seriously injured and had to be replaced.

Sometimes one can take something good out of disasters and the tactical changes imposed by this substitution made us finally wake up and take charge of the game. Great stuff by Ronny and BUEEEENOOOO finally scored a goal for us!

The last 15' were all ours and now we should go back to the pitch thinking that we need just one more goal to reach our aim in this match.

We can do it FFS!

If Spartak had a better defense they would eliminate sporting today for sure,Geder is the worst defender of the Cl.
