It's not surprising to see all the protests surrounding the team after such a disgraceful result and performance, especially having in mind the campaign against the current Board and against Paulo Bento that has been around forever.

There is no doubt that they have been under Benfica's foot ever since Vítor Serpa became their director but I wonder how can any Sporting fan buy that piece of red toilet paper after the shameful below the belt-type of news they've splashing all over that tabloid. It does seem that LF Vieira and his jagunços cannot stand the idea of staying for a third season in a row behind Sporting and despair is taking over their actions.

On the contrary to what many people expected, and obviously wished, those fans of Sporting present tonight in Alvalade have received the team with applause and not with jeers.

Here's our official line-up for the game about to start:

Rui Patrício
Pedro Silva - Daniel Carriço - Polga - Caneira
Rochemback
Izmailov - Vukcevic
João Moutinho
Liedson - Derlei

Great attacking move by Sporting finished by a good shot by Izmailov but the keeper saved well.

2-0 at HT

Sporting played a relaxed first half once again rebouncing in style from an European catastrophe. Rio Ave is a tricky side, with a couple of good players upfront, namely the youngster holding the sacred name of "Chirola" Yazalde, but tonight they've been duly kept quiet. We've showed determination, composure and grit - just like we've been doing in most of the games we've played so far this season.

Good first half by Pedro Silva, Vukcevic, João Moutinho and above all, as always, Liedson. It's such a pleasure to the eyes to see "O Levezinho" playing football!

The customary studs up entry on one of our players that, as usual, goes unpunished. This time Pedro Silva got it.

2-0 FT

A very similar second half to the one that happened one week ago in Alvalade against Paços de Ferreira. With a two goal cushion Sporting controlled the game and didn't do more than just keeping the ball and letting Rio Ave run after it. Credit to our opponents that did a much better game than poor Paços last week.

Nice to see the fans behind the team, nice to win the second of the ten finals left and nice to see us ahead in the table of the first of the two title contenders that we need to beat until the end of the season.

Noite para homens
by António Tadeia in O Jogo, 15.03.2008

A derrota do Benfica até tinha dado uma ajuda: afinal, o segundo lugar estava à distância de uma vitória caseira contra o Rio Ave. Mas, do reencontro da equipa com o seu público após os 7-1 de Munique, não se esperava uma reacção calorosa. Sabendo que era proibido errar, Paulo Bento sacrificou os "jovens turcos" que vinham ganhando espaço na equipa (Adrien, Pereirinha...), chamou a sua corte de legionários "veteranos" (Derlei, Liedson, Polga, Rochemback, Caneira) e recomendou-lhes cautela, segurança e paciência. O Sporting entrou a jogar pela certa, sem grandes envolvimentos, sem movimentações brilhantes, mas cerrando fileiras. Marcou no primeiro remate à baliza, aos 22 minutos, por João Moutinho, e depois limitou-se a gerir a bola ante um Rio Ave reduzido a dez homens a partir do intervalo, para o qual foi já vergado ao peso de um 2-0 que haveria de ser definitivo.

Apesar da paupérrima segunda parte, com um Sporting dividido entre a vontade de gerir a bola e a ansiedade de a levar para a frente e um Rio Ave em que Coentrão estava tão só no ataque que quase parecia que lhe pediam que fosse construtor e finalizador ao mesmo tempo, o público de Alvalade acabou a cantar loas à sua equipa. Mas não foi isso que se viu desde o início: até o minuto de silêncio em honra de Adriano Afonso foi aproveitado por alguns para entoarem cânticos de repúdio pelos caídos em Munique. O jogo começou por isso dividido, com o 4x3x3 do Rio Ave a levar mais jogo para perto da área de um Sporting em 4x4x2 bem aberto a meio-campo do que seria de esperar. Ocasiões de golo, porém, nem vê-las, até que, aos 22', Derlei descobriu Moutinho à entrada da área e este aplicou um belo pontapé na bola para o 1-0.

Paulo Bento via vingar a sua estratégia de jogo seguro. Até porque, com a desvantagem, o Rio Ave teve de se alongar no campo, dando mais espaço às transições ofensivas leoninas: valeu-lhe a noite menos feliz de Izmailov e Vukcevic, além da marcação cerrada a Liedson e Derlei, que Edson e Gaspar nunca largavam. Se dúvidas houvesse, porém, a bomba de Rochemback, mesmo a finalizar a primeira parte, teria acabado com elas: as duas equipas foram para os balneários separadas por dois golos e por um jogador, uma vez que Bruno Mendes foi expulso.

A segunda parte foi assim uma perda de tempo. O Rio Ave não podia, o Sporting não se percebia, vagueando entre a gestão e a busca inane do terceiro golo. Mas, afinal, nem o público, dividido entre assobios e aplausos, sabia o que queria.

****************

A Estrela

Rochemback

Apressou o regresso de lesão para dar consistência e foi decisivo com o seu primeiro golo da época, o primeiro de livre na Liga

Tinha a final da Taça da Liga do próximo fim-de-semana em risco, mas apressou o seu regresso - com uma dose de sacrifício - para estabilizar e dar consistência ao futebol leonino no miolo. E desde cedo se começou a impor no centro do terreno, gerindo as transições da equipa da casa como um maestro, a jogar simples, mas objectivamente. Psicologicamente, a sua presença dotou a equipa de mais confiança, experiência e espírito guerreiro. Na cobertura de espaços e nas dobras ao colegas da defesa e de sector, foi incansável, mas destacou-se mais pelas suas acções ofensivas. Aos 38', tentou o pontapé-canhão, de livre directo, mas o tiro potente saiu ao lado, e já nos descontos da primeira parte sentenciou o desafio - e retirou-lhe emoção... - com um golo "à bomba", também de livre directo. Foi o primeiro golo do brasileiro desde o regresso ao clube verde e branco, no último defeso, e o primeiro de livre directo na Liga Sagres por parte dos leões - Veloso marcara o único da época frente ao Barcelona. Já na segunda parte queria repetir o feito e acabou a gesticular, irritado, com Moutinho por não lhe ter sido permitido marcar outro livre...

A Bola is disgraceful. I think they should start preparing to finish behind of SCP for the 4th consecutive season.

Good win for Sporting, lets hope Lucho misses his penalty shot tomorrow so Porto can drop points.
