Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
EL 12/13, Group G| SPORTING 0-0 FC Basel| Alvalade, 20.09.2012
Sporting's participation in this year's Europa League Group Stage starts at home against FC Basel. This will be the 5th time in less than 5 years that we face the Swiss and we have a 100% record against them.
Unfortunately there is not much hope of something much better than the very average performances we have shown so far this season. I expect Sá Pinto to field the same tactics with the same personnel and finish the night with the same lame speech.
