Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
PL R20: Vit. Setúbal 1-0 SPORTING; Bonfim, 24.02.2008
After our brilliant stroll in Switzerland we are back in the league to face the big surprise of this season at their stadium.
We have played Vitória de Setúbal already twice this season and still haven't managed to beat them (drew home 2-2 for the League and lost 0-1 away for the League Cup) which led Paulo Bento to say, in his pre-match press conference, that he hopes we will do it at the third attempt.
Although inconsistency has been the key word of our League displays so far, something tells me that we will manage to get the 3 points from Setúbal tonight. After all, the big derby that may decide the 2nd place is our next game and we shouldn't lose more ground to the camachitos before it.
Here's the list of players called for this match:
Rui Patrício and Stojkovic.
Pedro Silva, Tonel, Polga, Grimi, Ronny and Gladstone.
Miguel Veloso, Pereirinha, João Moutinho, Romagnoli, Adrien, Farnerud and Celsinho.
Liedson, Rodrigo Tiuí and Purovic.
The game starts at 20h15 CET
FORÇA SPORTING!!! :fero:
