After Monday's Circus at Barcelos we are back home to face the last placed in the league. Besides the usual fair amount of key players injured we have to add the suspension of Schaars. Sá Pinto makes a couple of changes in the starting line-up when compared to the last two games:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Xandão - Polga - Insúa
Elias - Renato Neto
Jeffrén - Izmailov - Diego Capel
Ricky van Wolfswinkel

Great chance for Sporting mainly created by Izmailov but RvW missed a sitter.

João Pereira puts the ball inside the net but RvW was offside and the goal is not called.

We're playing OK but João Pereira has been shocking. What a dumb player this guy is.

Wrong offside call on João Pereira now on a very dangerous chance for us.

SPORTING 1-0 Feirense at HT

Total domination from Sporting even if playing at a training match rhythm. We started strong, reached the first goal early but from then on we fell in the same mistake that has been our trademark in the majority of our home games this season: instead of immediately pressing for the second and then control the game, we have tried to do that right after being ahead on the score, which is always a very risky option. The fact is that perhaps that is enough to beat this Feirense, as they are completely toothless. They made one shot during these first 45' and that came two minutes from half time from a freekick...that ended on row Q. They are clearly a second division team, which makes me even more sure of how idiotic is the idea of increasing the number of clubs playing in our first league, as it seems to be the idea of the majority of the geniuses that run our professional football clubs.

In spite of the slowness of most of our game in this first half, it was good to see Diego Capel creating chaos in their defense upfront, it was also good to see Izmailov playing in his natural number 10 position, even if he doesn't seem to be playing at 100% of his physical capacities, and also Renato Neto, who is replacing Schaars very well.

Let's hope we come with a bit more sting for the second half.

Finally at 65' we have a good attacking move in this 2nd half. Great cross from the right by JP and Diego capel missed by very little with a header.

Ricky scores but the goal is correctly disallowed as he was marginally offside.

A lacklustre second half, much in the tradition of the home games under Sá Pinto, bar the games with Guimarães and Man City. Feirense was bolder than in the first 45' but was never really dangerous. We were poor and slow but even so could have made the second more than once. A fair result in a game that is not going to stay in the memory of anybody.

Let's hope we show more on Thursday against the Ukes of Metalist.
