The last thing we needed in between two of the most important games of this season's league was a must win Cup game. We did ask Nacional to change the date but they obviously refused as our stripes are horizontal instead of vertical and green instead of blue. In any case this is a game to be won as we definitely have the Cup as one of our main objectives this season. We played Nacional for the league about one month ago and could only beat them by a single goal. That is probably a good thing as our players will be warned about what needs to be done to beat a side that hasn't really impressed so far this season.

Here's the official line-up:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Onyewu - Polga - Insúa
Renato Neto
Elias - Schaars
Matías Fernández - van Wolfswinkel - Jeffrén


Only two changes from the initial line-up of last saturday's Clássico. Jeffrén, returning from another long injury spell (2 and a half months), will replace the out of form Capel and Matías will replace Carrillo. Seba Ribas, the new forward that just arrived from Genoa will be on the bench.

A 2-0 would be a good result.

FORÇA SPORTING!!!!!!!!!

Seba Ribas was indeed called but he will not be on the bench. Here are the subs available:

Marcelo Boeck, Santiago Arias, Evaldo, André Martins, Diego Capel, André Carrillo and Valeri Bojinov.

At 10' van Wolfswinkel is subbed by Bojinov. He seems to have a hip injury. Fúck it.

At 27' a good header by Insúa after a corner by Matías.

We started slowly but we are taking over the game since minute 15.

Stojanovic saw a yellow 2 minutes ago and now hacks Bojinov with no mercy. This is the same guy that got sent off here for the league a month ago.

Domingos doesn't wait for the break and makes the second sub: Renato Neto subbed by Carrillo at 41'

And at 45'+1' Polga decides to offer Candeias the chance to make the 2-0 and he does it. Who said parking the bus is not a good tactic?

0-2 at HT

Nothing went well in this first half - it almost looks like this is a game from last season.

Our problems in the defense/attack transition once again were so obvious that I am starting to wonder if Domingos is not doing a bit of a Paulo Bento impersonation with his stubborness on not moving back Elias or Schaars to the DM position. This gave again an advantage to our opponents and made us start the game without flow. To make things worse we lost van Wolfswinkel after only 10' with what seems to be an injury surely serious enough to have him missing the very important game at Braga.

We improved a little bit and created a couple of chances but Nacional took advantage of a dead ball situation to score, something normal in teams that come here only defend. Unfortunately the only substitute forward we had in the bench was Bojinov and it's been him that has been wasting another opportunity kindly given to him by Domingos. Also in a very generous mood seems to be Polga who just offered the ball on added time to Candeias who did well to score the second.

We are now facing a 2 goal disadvantage with only one substitution to make in a game that should be played without too much forcing as we have a big game on Sunday. Great stuff.

Another great chance for us at 60' with both Bojinov and Carrillo missing a great cross by Capel.

At 67' Márcio Madeira hacks Capel from behind and is booked. He had a yellow already so he is sent off.
