Europa League|Glasgow Rangers 1-1 SPORTING, Ibrox, 17.02.2011, Round of 32

Crisis or no crisis, we have a big name to defend in Europe so let's go for it. Paulo Sérgio shows his forcado soul and comes up with a bold line-up...

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Daniel Carriço - Polga - Evaldo
Maniche - Pedro Mendes
Zapater
Yannick Djaló - Hélder Postiga - Cristiano


Bench: Tiago, Nuno André Coelho, André Santos, Matías Fernández, Vukcevic, Diogo Salomão and Saleiro.


FORÇA SPORTING!!!

The first 15' were very even without any danger near both goals with Sporting holding them up in the midfield.

aaaaaah Postiga misses by very very little after a great run from Evaldo on the left. First real goal chance of the game.

First chance for Rangers now with Lafferty heading over the bar after a Polga cockup.

Very good attacking move from Sporting now but Postiga finished poorly.

Box to box game now with Djaló almost scoring after some nice quick feet trickery and on the other side Rui had to make a tight save right after that.

Rangers 0-0 SPORTING at HT

A very very even first half where we have well managed to keep the danger away from our last third for practically the whole 45'. In fact the most dangerous goal chance was ours when Postiga just missed for very little after getting the better over his marker. Our central midfield did well to sustain most of Rangers attacking moves and Evaldo (of all people), Postiga and Djaló did run their socks off. On the down side Cristiano has been invisible and our CBs go on being woeful particularly in the air. Under the current circumstances a 0-0 wouldn't be a bad result but one goal away tends to be crucial in this type of ties.

Just a few seconds after the second half whistle and polga offers Whittaker the chance to score but Rui was there to save our arse.

At 66' 1-0 for Rangers by Whittaker with a header from a corner.

We have been very poor in this 2nd half and this goal was expected. Why is PS insisting to keep that horrible Maniche on the pitch is just one of those mysteries.

Rangers 1-1 SPORTING FT

FFS finally a bit of fortune in this miserable season!

After a very balanced first half we were mostly dominated during the second half particularly until Rangers scored. After that we again even things a bit but never really showed any real danger upfront...until Matias and Salomão went in and both managed to unbalance that suspicious defence. So much so that Matigol with a terrific header scored at minute 89 giving us a golden away goal that can prove to be absolutely decisive in this tie.
