LC F4: SPORTING 3-0 Beira Mar; Alvalade, 23.01.2008

It's time for the 2nd round in the Final Four stage of the Portuguese League Cup's first edition. After what probably was our poorest game so far this season in the first round against Vitória in Setúbal, we are now forced to win the next two matches, both at home against Beira-Mar and Penafiel, if we want to reach the final of this new competition.

Silverware is silverware, as any true football fan knows, so it's time for us to make sure that our second trophy of this season is coming our way.

This is probably our starting XI for the game against Beira-Mar that kicks-off in about 45 minutes in Alvalade:

Stojkovic
Pereirinha - Tonel - Polga - Ronny
João Moutinho - Miguel Veloso
Izmailov - Romagnoli - Vukcevic
Liedson

Abel misses tonight his first game this season. Let's hope he can recover for the "clássico" on Sunday. :hopeful:

Good luck; hopefully you get some momentum so someone could knock those blokes off their feet.

Obrigado. If Nacional did it we can do it too.

Paulo Bento as usual surprises everybody and presents a totally different XI from what was expected:

Rui Patrício
Pereirinha - Tonel - Polga - Ronny
Miguel Veloso
João Moutinho - Vukcevic
Romagnoli
Purovic - Liedson

I hope this will not be our starting XI against the headsuptheirarses on Sunday.

In the other game of this 2nd round Setúbal drew 1-1 at Penafiel which means that we will go to 2nd place if we win tonight.

Vukcevic makes a hole in the net with his shot...unfortunately from the side net.

Pereirinha is clearly pushed inside the box but the ref "didn't see it"...

0-0 HT

Sporting playing at a training match rhythm against a team that only came to Alvalade to defend. One gear up from our side would be enough to win this. Let's hope it happens quickly in the 2nd half.

Ronny hits the bar on a very nice free kick.

Yes, I was surprised that you didn't get a penalty. Ok, he didn't fall down... but that was a mistake from the ref.

I just discovered RTP1 on my sat receiver. Filipe, how often does this channel show football?

Practically every weekend they have one game of our league and sometimes they show games from the Cup or the League Cup like this one.

Ah, ok. Thanks. So probably I can watch some Benfica games before our UEFA Cup clash.

Nice goal, that Liedson is really a great player.

2-0 now... also not bad.

Yes, I'm sure you'll be able to see a few of their matches.

Yes, he is amazing. The result is better than the performance but looking how things have been going with us lately, I'm happy with it.

3-0 FT

The gear went up and we ended up winning it easily. Great game by Liedson and Vukcevic but not much more than that.


This is the current table of the Final 4 of the League Cup:

1 Setúbal .....2G 1W 1D 0L 2-1 4P
2 SPORTING ..2G 1W 0D 1L 3-1 3P
3 Penafiel ......2G 0W 2D 1L 2-2 2P
4 Beira-Mar .....2G 0W 1D 1L 1-4 1P

Next Wednesday:

SPORTING vs Penafiel
Setúbal vs Beira-Mar
