Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
The same story all over again. We lose a game against a mediocre team that was there for the taking.
In this second half, which is the period of the game that I saw, we were clearly on top of them until Boulahrouz decided to make an unnecessary foul that he obviously knew was going to grant him a sending off. A team in the psychological state that Sporting is was never going to hold on to this point.
We are now bottom of the group with 1 point from 3 matches. It's not over yet because we can easily beat both Genk and Videoton at home and even Basel away. If only the team reacts positively to the coming of a new coach.
