Europa League|Lille OSC 1-2 SPORTING, Lille (FRA), 16.09.2010; Group C Round 1

Our participation in the group stage of this season's Europa League starts with what, on paper at least, should be the most difficult of our matches in this group. Lille is a very good attacking side who has been unbeaten at home in their last 8 matches. The timing of this game is not really the best because less than 72 hours later we are playing our first derby of the season away against the pink cry babies. Our squad is also severely depleted, especially in the midfield with Izmailov, Pedro Mendes and maniche all absent due to injury plus Liedson who is suspended for a match.

Maybe this is the main reason why Paulo Sérgio decided to make some very odd experiments tonight...just look at our starting line-up according to UEFA's site...

Tiago
Daniel Carriço - Polga - Torsiglieri
Abel - André Santos - Zapater - Vukcevic
Diogo Salomão
Hélder Postiga - Saleiro



Subs:
Hildebrand, Joäo Pereira, Nuno André Coelho, Evaldo, Matías Fernández, Jaime Valdés and Yannick Djaló.

Fisrt official match of no less than two players, the Argentinian CB Marco Torsiglieri and the promising left winger Diogo Salomão.

Let's hope this revolution will bear fruits.

SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORTING!!!

A red card was now due to the last Lille defender but the Englisah ref only gave a yellow

Sporting completely on top in these first 10' and a beautiful counterattack from the right is finished well by Vuk in the box. Great stuff.

Another superb counter attack and another excellent cross by Abel from the right finished with a great header by Postiga. Grande Sporting!

Lille is KO and they are forced to make a double sub after...39'

Lille 0-2 SPORTING at HT

Great first half by Sporting, full of grit and personality, keeping the French very far from creating any danger for most of these first 45'.

The complete revolution in our line-up happened more in terms of personnel than in the tactical scheme as this was the real disposition of our line-up:

Tiago
Abel - Carriço - Polga - Torsiglieri
André Santos - Zapater
Vukcevic ---------------- Diogo Salomão
Postiga - Saleiro

I've always felt that this current squad is more tailored to play in counter attack than in any other type of attacking system and this first half was a complete proof of that.

Great speed on the transitions (as opposed to what was usual in this start of the season so far with...Maniche), direct crosses with very little dribbling by Abel (as opposed to...João Pereira), and some clear cut finishing by Vuk and Postiga (as opposed to...anybody).

Lille improved after their double substitution in the last 5-7 minutes before the break but we have this game in our hands.

I'm watching the game on a French stream and even the commentator in the studio confirms what looked very obvious to me during the game: After only 4' Postiga was hacked from behind when going alone towards goal and the EPL ref Martin Atkinson, who also gave a ridiculous yellow card to Vukcevic, decided to give a simple yellow.

1-2 at 56' by Frau. Shot from outside that Tiago could not hold and the French gain some hope after having done very little so far to deserve it.

At 72' first substitution for us: João Pereira comes IN for the place of Vukcevic.

Tiago saved us from the 2-2 but their player was clearly offside...not called by this filho da puta Atkinson.

Lile OSC 1-2 SPORTING FT

The second half was obviously different as Lille tried everything to come back in the score but Sporting defended very well and could even have scored the 3rd.

Third consecutive away victory in our third away game in this season's Europa League.

Hats off to Paulo Sérgio who gave the chance to many players that haven't been first option in this season and the bet paid off totally.

Tiago, Abel, Zapater, Salomão, Vukcevic and Postiga were all very good.
