Living far from Portugal and only visiting it once during the football season leaves me a very limited number of chances to watch my team playing live. This time I've only managed to watch them playing once during the three weeks that I have just spent in my country, but I can't say I was very lucky with the choice.

Sporting played a lazy first half against Académica, and although we were the best team on the pitch during that period, we didn't really do enough to open the score. We've played better in the second half but a lack of inspiration upfront and very good defensive game by Académica, led by a brilliant display of their Slovak keeper, denied us a win that we did in fact deserve.

Nevertheless it's always great to watch our team playing live, too bad I can't do it more often.
