Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
A very poor first half with all the signs of a team with an acute case of lack of self-confidence.
The attempt of having Viola as a support striker to RvW was perhaps a good idea but we have no right side and all the few proper attacks came from the left, mostly led by a very lively Capel, but also by Insúa or Labyad. The midfield as either been hesitant when attacking or clumsy when defending. Cedric is a permanent liability when defending and the CBs are also not exactly reassuring so far.
I'd love to see Carrillo turning this upside down in the second half.
