Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
Only 72 hours after making history against one of the best teams in the world, Sporting is back in league action to face 6th placed Vitória de Guimarães. It's a tough game, because it's coming in between what are probably the two most difficult matches of the season for us, and also because it is a true test to the mental strength of this squad.
Sá Pinto is on a high, let's see if the team is going to follow him.
List of 19 players called:
Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício and Marcelo Boeck;
Defenders: Daniel Carriço, Anderson Polga, Evaldo, João Pereira and Xandão;
Midfielders: Stijn Schaars, Marat Izmailov, Diego Capel, Matías Fernández, Jeffrén, Bruno Pereirinha, André Santos, André Martins and Elias;
Forwards: Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Seba Ribas and Diego Rubio.
Rodriguez and Rinaudo are still out injured. Insúa and Carrillo are suspended. Jeffrén is back from injury.
