EL 12/13, Group G| SPORTING 1-1 RKC Genk|Alvalade, 08.11.2012, 21:05 CET

Sporting is living one of the darkest pages in the history of the club and to be honest it got to a point where I'm not sure if it wouldn't be preferable that we do go out right now from Europe and lose or draw on Sunday against Braga, as probably that would be the only way to force that pathetic prick of a president to finally realize that the only way is OUT.

In any case I will not wish that and I do have hope that tonight we will finally wake up and give a first step in the right direction.

Vercauteren seems to be aware of the pressure and it is in fact an interesting coincidence that his first European game will be against one of the teams that he must know better. Needless to say that anything but a win will put us out of a competition where we had a very good run in the last 2 or 3 seasons, this in what seemed at start a very easy group.

Here's the starting line-up:

Rui Patrício

Cédric - Xandão - Marcos Rojo - Insúa

Elias - Schaars

Viola

Labyad - Ricky van Wolfswinkel - Diego Capel


Bench: Marcelo Boeck, Tiago Ilori, Gelson Fernandes, Rinaudo, Izmailov, Carrillo and Betinho.

First shot for us coming at 23'. Labyad from a freekick straight to the keeper.

We're not looking good, obviously very nervous.

At 45' Capel has a great diagonal coming from the left and delivers a killer pass to Cedric...who just stumbles with the ball inside the box and wastes our best chance of scoring so far.

0-0 at HT

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.

Excellent cross by Capel but RvW just failed to connect the header.

Great run by Capel assisting Viola but he was too slow on the shot. We are looking much better in the 2nd half. COME ON!!!

At 59' Schaars on a yellow has a badly timed tackle and for the 3rd time in the EL we are going to play with 10 men. **** this.

Capel is having a hell of a game doing slaloms between the Belgian midfielders and defenders and being the real reason for our much better game in this second half, even with one man down.

Great chance by Vossen but his acrobatic shot went wide.

Some Genk guy misses a huge chance but he was offside and the ref didn't call it.

Labyad tries a cheeky lob from the midfield line that almost surprised the keeper.
