Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
SPORTING 1-1 Académica at HT
A completely one way street game so far. We could have scored twice in the opening two minutes but it was Académica to do it in their only shot on goal during this first half, courtesy of one more blunder from our keeper, one of those players that are unexplainably "untouched" in this squad.
A goal like that would shake any team and in the present season it's not needed much to shake us. Still, we've completely dominated these first 45', scored a nice equaliser and could have added a second.
Pedro Mendes is having a fairly good debut and Sinama is also showing some good appointments, even if it is clear that he still needs a bit more playing time to fit with his attacking team mates. Liedson and Moutinho have been very good.
