Liga 12/13, J24| Braga 2-3 SPORTING | Braga, 01.04.2013, 21:30 CET

After a break that brought a real revolution to the club the league is back with one of the toughest games of the season. It's Braga, who are fighting to keep the very important 3rd place. A team which was coached by our current manager which is now coached by a former Sporting manager. The pressure is therefore very much balanced between the two sides. Jesualdo will keep the job at least until the end of the season and our new president would surely like to start with a win.

Looking at the players called the big news are that Stijn Schaars is back after a 4 months break due to a broken foot. Boulahrouz and Carrillo are out injured.

Here's the list of players called:

Goalkeepers:
Rui Patrício and Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders:
Cédric, Miguel Lopes, Tiago Ilori, Eric Dier, Fokobo, Marcos Rojo and Joãozinho.

Midfielders:
Rinaudo, Adrien, Schaars, André Martins, Labyad, Jeffrén and Diego Capel.

Forwards:
Bruma, Viola and Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Sporting's line-up:

Rui Patrício
Cédric - Tiago Ilori - Marcos Rojo - Joãozinho
Rinaudo
André Martins - Eric Dier
Labyad - Ricky van Wolfswinkel - Diego Capel



Great to see André Martins starting instead of sluggish Adrien.

For the third time in these first 8' Sporting went very well up through the right wing and this time RvW was there to finish with a flying header the perfect cross by André Martins.

Great diagonal ride by Capel from right to left making a killer pass to RvW who finishes with a crossed blast.

A very good first half with tempo, goals and attacking football. Sporting showed many things that were absolutely absent from our game this season. Good and fast combinations in the last third, no fear to take charge of the game, strong reaction after conceding a goal. It's partly because the work done by Jesualdo is starting to show up but it's also a matter of casting. André Martins is by far the best option in the current squad to fill that key position of a creative central midfielder and in this first half we could see how much our attacking football gained because of him.

Of course that we still have our hesitations and our Joõezinhos at the back but that's the heritage of a gruesome season.

I don't know if we will leave Braga with the 3 points but at least we are showing an attitude and also an offensive quality that can only give hope to what's left in the season.

Great to see our new president sitting on the bench.

At 69' our dear friend Jorge Sousa decides to make a second appearance in the game and books Joãozinho for the second time for a supposed dive inside Braga's box.

Clap clap clap clap.
