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.
