That's right and we are hosting tricky Paços who's been playing some decent football this season on occasions. The highlight of this match is the fact that two of our squad's backbone players are returning from injury: Liedson and Pedro Mendes. We have a decisive match on Thursday against Ligue 1 leaders Lille for the Europa League followed by a classic against our league leaders Porto, so this is just the start of a hell of a week.

Here's our very attack minded starting XI. Match kicks off now:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Daniel Carriço - Polga - Evaldo
Pedro Mendes - André Santos
Jaime Valdés ----- Yannick Djaló
Liedson - Hélder Postiga

Subs: Tiago, Abel, Torsiglieri, Zapater, Diogo Salomão, Vukcevic and Saleiro.

Excellent cross by Pedro Mendes but Postiga didn't manage to connect the header.

Nice volley by João Pereira well saved by keeper Cássio with his fists.

Please Mr Costinha, sell Djaló to the first sunday league team that shows interest on this waste of space.

Wow! What a fantastic shot from 30m or so by André Santos hitting the crossbar.

SPORTING 1-0 Paços at HT

My jinx worked Djaló was woeful during 46 of the 47 minutes of this first half and when it counted most he decides to pull out a Robinho style escape finished with a low shot that fortunately was deflected enough to beat their keeper.

We had a normal game for our meagre standards of this season. plenty of ball possession, a fair amount of more or less good attacking build ups but a very few real goal chances. Paços defended well but was not very dangerous upfront.

Pedro Mendes and Liedson were both fine in their return. Postiga, André Santos and João Pereira looked very good as well.

And Djaló goes off and Vukcevic comes in at 60'. Good sub.

Pedro Mendes is down injured. Hopefully is nothing serious.

SPORTING 1-0 Paços de Ferreira FT

A scrappy second half that finished with a couple of really good chances for us and one for them. We again looked too nervous in spite of being ahead on the score but ended up doing enough to deserve the win and the passage to Round 5 of the second most important tournament of Portuguese football.

Good game by André Santos, Postiga and João Pereira and a nice return for both Pedro Mendes and Liedson.

Would've liked to see Liedson dressing his scoring boots again.
