The otherside of that argument is that they no longer have anything to play for aside from the league and will increase their attentiveness to keeping the title. I hope your take is correct, but I dont think so.

I am also not that optimistic. We are in reality 5 points behind them (1-2 on direct confrontation) and I honestly don't see them losing that amount of points in the 6 games left to play.

It is true that they seem to have lost Lucho for the rest of the season which is no doubt a huge blow but we're also without Vukcevic. Our realistic aim should once again be to retain the CL-access 2nd place and leave the UEFA Cup for those that deserve it.

At 9' it's Rui Patrício time to have a great save after a good shot by Roberto.

At 17' Derlei hits again the crossbar but he was judged offside.

Sporting is playing well.

Amazing foot save by Nilson after a shot by Liedson.

We should be up by now.

At 45'+1' Bruno Paixão comes into the limelight.

Daniel Carriço scores a perfectly clean goal which is disallowed for something that I honestly can't understand. Oh what a surprise.


HT 0-0

A very entertaining and also very well played first half. Sporting played very well and we should really be up even if Guimarães was also dangerous and had one of the best goal chances in this first half. A shame this circus number by that clown with the whistle that is appropriately wearing a very bright red shirt.

1-0 to Guimarães. Great header by Roberto beating a sleeping defence.

Jogo perigoso.

Don't think so.

Guimaraes could have scored the second already.
