Liga 11/12, R28| SPORTING 2-1 Académica| Alvalade, 30.04.2012

After the brilliant European campaign that ended last Thursday at San Mamés our attentions are now turned to the league where, somehow unexpectedly, we suddenly are still with a chance to reach the 3rd place. It will not be easy but it is only in our hands. It starts tonight against Académica, who started the league so well but who have been tumbling down in a free fall that may well end up in relegation.

Our home form under Sá Pinto has been absolutely perfect and although our opponents will be fighting for their lives I can't see us losing this chance to close the gap even more on Braga.

The line-up is already out...

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Onyewu - Polga - Insúa
Elias - Schaars
Carrillo - Matías Fernández - Diego Capel
Ricky van Wolfswinkel

35m missile by Nivaldo but Patrício saved well. Sporting starting very slow.

Magic move by Matías escaping two defenders with one dribble near the corner

These two muppets from TVI are absolutely hilarious. They haven't even realised that Izmailov is not playing...after 19'

Fantastic work by Capel on the left and Carrillo heads in on the right place. 1-0 at 31'

Wrong offside call on RvW stealing a great huge chance.

1-1 at HT

A very slow first half by Sporting which in a way is understandable after the effort in Bilbao. Académica was poor and could only score thanks to the magnificent header of our captain. Perhaps this own goal will force us to step up a bit the rhythm and create enough dangerous situations to solve the game.

Sporting didn't change the rhythm in this first 15' of the second half and Académica is a bit bolder.

Another ridiculous offside call wrongly going against us cutting a dangerous counter.

Carrillo smashes a volley against the crossbar and the Iceman heads in the rebound.

Third wrong offside call against us when Capel was going one on one against the keeper. :rollani:
