League Cup|Gr.B|R3: Trofense 0-1 SPORTING; Trofa, 23.01.2010

The last round of the 2009/10 League Cup's group stage will be played tonight and a draw at second placed Trofense will see us through as group winners to the Semis. Here's the current standings of our group:

Group B
1 Sporting...............2G 2W 0D 0L 4-2 6P
2 Trofense................2G 1W 1D 0L 2-1 4P
3 U. Leiria..................2G 0W 1D 1L 2-3 1P
4 Sp. Braga.................2G 0W 0D 2L 1-3 0P


Liedson will surely be on focus tonight after his midweek incident with the moron thast used to lead our football department. However for me much more important than that will be to see how well the group will react to those sad and completely unwelcomed events.


Here's our confirmed starting XI:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Daniel Carriço - Tonel - Grimi
Adrien
João Moutinho - Matías Fernandez - Miguel Veloso
Saleiro - Liedson


Subs bench: Tiago, Anderson Polga, Pedro Silva, Yannick Djaló, Hélder Postiga, Pereirinha and Abel.


The game kicks of at 21:15 CET

Trofense started much better than us but now at 26' we had the most clear goal chance of the game so far with Saleiro failing to beat the keeper when he was alone in front of him.

Dubious penalty situation with Matias falling on Trofense's box. Nothing given. If he was called Oscar, Pablito ou Coelho à Caçadora, I am sure the ref would have seen something different though.

1-0 by o Levezinho at 37' through a cool header after a good corner by Veloso on the right.

Trofense 0-1 SPORTING at HT

Trofense started the game showing that they knew that only a win could secure their passage to the Semis of this comnpetition and on the same tone Sporting showed, mostly during the first half of these first 45', that a draw would be enough to take the top spot. At 25' we had our first real goal chance and that was almost like a warning bell as from then on we took charge of the game. Liedson scored, for the 3rd time since his recent knee operation, and we showed much better composure from then on. It is also clear that since Carvalhal took over we've been creating much more danger upfront on dead ball situations which is something very positive to notice.

The second half started with Sporting on top and we've created danger twice in the first 4'.

Very interesting second half with Trofense putting up a fight and Sporting dangerous in the counter.

Trofense 0-1 SPORTING FT

An intelligent second half by Sporting securing the one goal lead and giving little chances for Trofense to react. The locals were brave and showed they have some interesting players but this was a game for us to win and to finish top of our group with 3 wins out of 3 matches thus securing a spot in the semi finals where we may face Porto, Benfica or Académica.

Good game by Carriço, Moutinho, Matias, Saleiro and Liedson, and overall a good demonstration of group spirirt by the squad after a troubled week.
