Liga R27| FC Porto 3-2 SPORTING; Dragão, 17.04.2011

The 32 (!) points of difference that separate us from our opponent tonight are a perfect testimony of what has been this season for us and do not bring any hope to any realistic Sporting fan for this Clássico. Our self-elected new president will be sitting next to the king of scum, just like all the other roquettistas were, we will be playing with a much weaker squad than our opponents in practically every signle position on the pitch (bar the goalkeeper), our coach is worst than theirs but still, we are a football club with a clean and honest history and also because of that we will always be bigger than they are. :smileani:

Line-up and bench for tonight:


Rui Patrício
Abel - Polga - Torsiglieri - Evaldo
André Santos - Zapater
Jaime Valdés - Matías Fernández - Yannick Djaló
Hélder Postiga

Bench: Tiago, Daniel Carriço, Nuno André Coelho, Izmailov (he is back!), Vukcevic, Diogo Salomão, Saleiro.

FORÇA SPORTING!!!

Sporting pressing in the first 10' and this goal actually comes without surprise.

Falcao hits the post with a great header at 21' on Porto's first real attack movement of the game.

At 26' 1-1 by Falcao. This time he did not miss the header. Also logic as Porto was pressing since they suffered the goal.

We were on the verge of scoring again at 38' after a beautiful cross from the left but Djaló headed slightly over the crossbar.

A two footed tackle of Sereno on Postiga right outside their box and the ref doesn't even call the foul.

1-1 at HT

A somehow surprisingly composed first half from our side. We've started better than them and reached the advantage fairly, even if luckily as André Santos shot was deflected by Matías and completely wrong footed Helton. Porto reacted and reached the equaliser fairly through a superb header by the best player of this season's league. We did not tremble and actually could have even scored another.

If only we had played with this self-confidence in the rest of this season's games. :rollani:

First 5' of the second half were again balanced but we have Djaló and they have Falcao. 2-1 for them at 50'.

Incredible miss by Valdés who ran 50 metres alone with the ball but missed the finish childishly.

Rolando handles the ball in their box, the ref sees it and...waves on, of course.

You think that was a penalty? Intentional hand ball?

FCP 3-2 SCP FT

A very fine game from both sides with Sporting playing way above what we did for 90% of this season. In spite of playing against the team that completely dominated the league this season we were really far from being outplayed even if Rui Patrício was indeed the man of the Match. Nevertheless we could have also scored more than two goals tonight but all in all the score is fair.

Apart from Rui, our best players were Evaldo, who had probably his best game for us since he came from Braga, André Santos, who did not lose the central midfield battle with Moutinho and Matías, who is showing in this final part of the season how good he can be if he is not stuck tactically to places where he should never be forced to play.

The 3rd place is not only in our hands now but if we keep this attitude I am sure we will get it.

Intentional hand ball? He slipped alright but handled the ball in a way that interfered with the play and avoided the ball reaching one of our players that was in a goal scoring position. Penalty anywhere in the world...except at Dragão of course. :smileani:

Have Sporting ever played a single game where you weren't apparently robbed of penalties?

I'm not sure if you've had one game thread in the history of XT without complaining about missed PK calls.
