Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
Liga 12/13, J20| Estoril 3-1 SPORTING | Amoreira, 22.02.2013, 21:00 CET
Sporting is back in league action tonight this time to visit Estoril Praia who currently is one position in the table above us with the same points. It's a tough place to go as Estoril is having a very good campaign and are led by a very competent young Portuguese coach.
There is hope that a similar display of energy and pride to the one shown last week against Gil Vicente can happen once again today.
Jesualdo still can't count with Schaars and Boulahrouz. Joãozinho is suspended. Adrien was not called. On the other hand Marcos Rojo and Jeffrén have recovered from their injuries and have both been called.
Here's the starting XI:
Subs: Marcelo Boeck, Cédric, Fokobo, André Martins, Carrillo, Jeffrén e Diego Rubio.
Miguel Lopes - Eric Dier - Tiago Ilori - Marcos Rojo
Zézinho - Rinaudo
Diego Capel - Labyad - Bruma
Ricky van Wolfswinkel
Two changes from the team that started in Barcelos with Rojo replacing Joãozinho as LB and Capel starting instead of Carrillo.
Good to see all the kids back in action but I would really have prefered to see André Martins instead of Labyad.
