Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
Liga 12/13, J25| SPORTING 3-2 Moreirense | Alvalade, 06.04.2013, 21:30 CET
Just a couple of months ago it would seem impossible to predict that Sporting could be so close to the European places in the league table but that's what is really happening now. A win today against struggling Moreirense will put us just one point away from that aimed 5th spot. A win tonight would also mean that we would manage to get 3 straight wins for the first time this season, which just about sums up how horrendous this season has been for the club.
A lot of shit has been spewed by the usual suspects of our sports press about the hypothetical conflict of interests affecting Moreirense's coach Augusto Inácio, who will be at the end of the season a member of Sporting's football department. It's even more hilarious when those critics come from people linked to...Porto
Jesualdo can't count with Boulahrouz (injured) and Joãozinho (suspended).
Here's the starting XI:
Cédric - Tiago Ilori - Marcos Rojo - Miguel Lopes
Eric Dier - André Martins
Bruma - Ricky van Wolswinkel - Diego Capel
Substitutes: Hugo Ventura, Fokobo, Adrien, Schaars, Labyad, Diego Rubio and Viola.
