There is not much to say about this game. If we want to have European football this year in Alvalade, we need to beat this well organised but very average Danish side.

Looking at the official line-up below it seems that Domingos is betting on giving the Danes 45' of rest to their defence.

I fear this is going to be a looooooooong night. :rollani:


Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Daniel Carriço (c) - Polga - Evaldo
André Santos
Izmailov ---- Schaars
Yannick Djaló - Hélder Postiga - Diego Capel


Subs: Marcelo, Onyewu, Rinaudo, Diego Rubio, Carrillo, van Wolfswinkel and Bojinov.

It must be Xmas tonight. First 6' and we offered them a chance to score. They offered us two. Everybody failed.

Carriço misses a tap in about 2 metres from goal.

0-0 at HT

As expected we suffered to create real goal chances and those that we had were wasted by the usual suspects.

We did press very high and generally well and the few times FCN went upfront only happened through some silly unnecessary fouls commited by our defenders in our own half.

Very hard to understand Domingos options for this game upfront. Let's see what he does to change this.

2nd half starts just like the whole first. No subs and 5' of incredibly missed chances.

It's been a massacre this second half but goals, nothing.

Finally at 77' André Santos does what others so many times missed in this game. Great assist by Bojinov.

FCN does 1-2 at 92' from a corner by Laudrup's son.

SPORTING 2-1 FC Nordsjaelland FT

A second half where we completely massacred FCN but it was only after Djaló was subbed by Bojinov that things started to get real upfront. It could have ended 5 or 6 nil but what matters is that we did what was no less than our duty. I just hope Domingos have learned something from this.

Polga (having a great start of season), André Santos and Diego Capel were our best players tonight but Bojinov already gave a little hint that he might be forward that we have missed in this early start of the season.

Let's see what the draw brings tomorrow.
