PL R27: U. Leiria - SPORTING; Leiria, 20.04.2008

It's surely still with big smiles on our faces that all sportinguistas wait for today's game against the worst team of our league. There is a lot to be played in this game, especially after Guimarães dropped two points in Coimbra.

Everybody is talking about how much easier our fixtures list is compared with those of our direct opponents but that means nothing unless we do what we have to do. A win tonight in Leiria and we will jump to the golden 2nd spot from where we shouldn't leave, as from then on we will again be only depending on ourselves.

Here is the list of players called by Paulo Bento for the game that kicks off at 20h15 CET:

Goalkeepers:
Rui Patrício and Tiago.

Defenders:
Pedro Silva, Anderson Polga, Tonel, Grimi and Abel.

Midfielders:
Adrien Silva, Izmailov, Farnerud, Miguel Veloso, Pereirinha, João Moutinho and Romagnoli.

Forwards:
Vukcevic, Derlei, Yannick Djaló, Rodrigo Tiuí and Liedson.



Polga is back and Derlei too!

0-2 again Paulo César. I guess these guys are not interested to play in the CL next year.

Vukcevic wastes an amazing chance after a killer pass by Moutinho

Leiria 2-0 Sporting HT

Unfortunately for those like me that have been following Sporting game by game this season, what happened in this first half is not really a surprise. An amazingly slow start against a team that has nothing to lose equals 0-2. We have done enough to score a goal but we didn't. We need another miracle.

Simon's first touch was very poor on the pass from Moutinho.

But remember the Benfica match: a 2 goal deficit isn't insurmountable, and Sporting definitely want to play in the CL next year.

At 59' Pereirinha comes in for Abel. We are now practically playing without full backs.

Djaló is now the target of a killer tackle but the ref thinks that a yellow is enough

Leiria's play acting would be hilarious if we wouldn't be losing 0-2 against them

Djaló scores...but the ref sees another offside. This time we've been robbed.

3-0...N'Gal. I guess this means...bye bye direct qualification for the CL.
