Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
A lively second half, more open than the first as although Sporting kept creating chances, the narrow margin always hanged in the air creating too much stress to this very nervous squad.
We should have scored much more than two goals, so many were the goals chances created. I honestly can't remember the last time we attacked so much and so well. On the other hand, defensively we didn't have a good game, particularly in those terrible dead ball situations.
Good game by Labyad, Bruma, van Wolfswinkel and Dier. Poor game by Joãozinho (defending).
All in all it was a more than deserved win even if it should have really been a much fatter one.
