Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
Liga 12/13, J19| Gil Vicente 2-3 SPORTING | Barcelos, 16.02.2013, 21:15 CET
Our quest to reach a European place, if we want to be über optimistic, continues today with a visit to one of the few teams that we have actually managed to beat this season. Gil Vicente is not in form but they are a tough team to beat at their stadium.
Sporting will be without quite a few players injured which means, for example, that our two CBs will both be players that started the season with the B team. Pedro Mendes (22), Tiago Ilori (19) or Eric Dier (19) - from here Jesualdo will have to chose the central pair for our defence. The other absents will be Jeffrén and Schaars (both injured, although the Dutch will soon be available) and Adrien (suspended).
The line-up will be announced soon.
