Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
SPORTING 1-0 Braga at HT
Complete domination from Sporting in this first half not letting Braga create anything upfront and producing a series of dangerous chances at the other end. It's true that the only goal so far came from a silly gift by a red cabeçudo but the chances were so many that something had to go in.
Individually, on the bright side was Carrillo who was excellent with van Wolfswinkel, Schaars and Elias working their socks off, as usual. On the dark side Insúa was poor for his standards, Jeffrén was a shadow and João Pereira kept running like a headless chicken, crossing like a blindman and distributing fruit to all the Braga players that had the bad luck to cross his path - ie. a perfect buy for Valencia this summer.
Fantastic support from a packed Alvalade. Let's keep the attitude and finish this in style.
