Great work by Abel on the right and Postiga making his debut goal for us. Brilliant start!

Another great counter attack move by Romagnoli that created havoc in Braga's box.

****ing ref cuts a very dangerous counter attack for us to call a free kick in the midfield.

Braga is playing in the usual aggressive attacking style of JJ but Sporting is answering with loads of grit. Good game so far.

Pathetic Bruno Paixão. A rain of yellow card completely unnecessary.

Braga 0-1 SPORTING at HT

An absolute midfield battle made this first half very entertaining. Sporting started better, scored and afterwards managed to hold well the very attacking minded midfield of Braga.

Great to see Hélder Postiga scoring for us

At 56' Postiga is subbed by Tíui. PB saw that he was falling in João Pereira's provocations and as he had already a yellow card he decided to sub him.

Braga 0-1 SPORTING FT

A brave and very intelligent game by Sporting conquering 3 precious points in a very hard place. Braga tried and tried but never really created any danger. Complete control from our side. Impressive.

Este leão entra logo a matar
by Mário Duarte in O Jogo
02.09.2008


Apagar a má imagem deixada pelas segundas linhas ante o colossal Real Madrid em jogo particular, manter a senda vitoriosa esta época e garantir uma vitória que assegurasse a liderança partilhada na Liga que querem resgatar a 24 de Maio de 2009 conseguindo, desde já, vantagem directa sobre os mais directos concorrentes - este era o objectivo do Sporting; surpreender, logo à partida, um adversário complicado, bem armado e com grande consistência defensiva, que partia para o sétimo jogo da época sem sofrer golos e a somar por vitórias os jogos disputados - esta era a fórmula. Os leões levaram três minutos a interpretá-la com sucesso, matando de início o carisma intacto com que as redes bracarenses, à guarda de Eduardo, se apresentavam e fintando o pecado repetido na temporada passada de dar meio jogo de avanço aos adversários: os leões entram para ganhar e conseguem chegar à vantagem num ápice - logo aos 3'.

O domínio madrugador do Sporting em Braga foi pouco menos que avassalador, com a dupla de ataque que arrecadou o título e a Taça UEFA em 2003 (Postiga e Derlei) a repetir uma enorme agressividade e o meio-campo disposto em losango a mostrar-se muito solidário, com as compensações a serem conseguidas em permanência e a circulação de bola a surgir fluente e certeira. O Braga dispunha-se num losango menos pressionante que o dos leões e "inclinado" para a direita, insistindo em Alan para a manobra ofensiva - a que Grimi e Izmailov, de resto, se opunham com propósito -, com Luis Aguiar a abusar da posse de bola... e consequente perda, dada a pressão imediata dos leões. O "desaparecimento" de Romagnoli e o alargamento da equipa de Jesus levou a maior domínio do Braga ao cair da primeira parte (Rui Patrício fez a primeira defesa aos... 45'+3').

O Braga surgiu na segunda parte com novo alento e com disposição reforçada para discutir o jogo. Paulo Bento trocou o "herói do jogo" (Postiga) pelo "herói da Taça" (Tiuí), Jesus respondeu com a troca de Matheus por César Peixoto e ganhou ainda maior propensão ofensiva. Com o lançamento de Mossoró e Rentería, entrou Miguel Veloso por Romagnoli, assumindo Moutinho a posição dez e Bento o pragmatismo de querer garantir um triunfo importante que os leões, mesmo com a expulsão de João Pereira (84'), fizeram por saber segurar, graças à raça de Derlei, à disponibilidade de Izmailov e à autoridade e experiência de Rochemback - e ao golo de Postiga, claro. O leão entrou a matar, teve a capacidade de sofrer por uma hora e resgatou a vitória ante um adversário muito complicado. É assim que se fazem os campeões...


A Figura
HÉLDER POSTIGA
Sem marcar no Campeonato desde 2 de Novembro de 2007 - quando, ainda pelo FC Porto, desfeiteou o Belenenses... de Jorge Jesus -, Postiga teve bela estreia a titular pelo Sporting. Numa entrada à leão, o avançado fez o golo que valeu três pontos aos 3'. Jogou, fez jogar e ainda defendeu com denodo. Saiu aos 56', é certo, mas fez a diferença, com Pinto da Costa a ver.

Because he was injured for a while during the pre-season and generally has been in a poorer shape than those 4 that played from start in the midfield.
