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.

Matías, once again our best player tonight, finds van Wolfs in the box and he finally find the back of the net with a well placed shot. Deserved lead.

Our defence is caught sleeping for the first time tonight but Rui Patrício saved well, as usual.

SPORTING 1-0 Guimarães at HT

A very good first half from Sporting dominating Guimarães and even if not creating too many chances doing enough to justify the lead.

The game started balanced and very open and only after 4' van Wolfswinkel could have opened the score after a superb pass by Matías. The Chilean has been our best player since Sá Pinto took charge of the team and that is not a coincidence as only now he is really playing in the position that he prefers, one that clearly brings up the best in him.

The team seems motivated after Thursday's game but also tactically things seem to be flowing better than usual, at least better than in the first few matches under Sá Pinto. It's interesting to see us playing without a single DM but rather with Elias-Schaars doing the defensive-attacking transitions in the middle. Evaldo is putting a good shift replacing Insúa and on the other flank João Pereira is very active too, even if also as usual, he seems to need an eternity before deciding to cross. Also good to see Ricky back to the scoring sheet on open play.

Good move on the left by Capel finished with a deep cross that was not well dealt with by Vitória's defence and Matías does not forgive. 2-0 at 50'.

Great cross by Capel, Wolfs heads it and Nilson saves. Sporting on top.

Elias is fouled still on Vitória's defence, the ref waves on and on the counter Vitória creates danger.

At 68' Sá Pinto makes the first sub: André Martins replaces Matías Fernández. Great game by the Chilean.

van Wolfswinkel was fouled inside the box by João Alves and the Russian kills the game.

What a beauty by Jeffrén! A superb volley after a corner on his first touch in the ball after months of absence.
