Liga 13/14 R3| SPORTING 1-1 Benfica| Alvalade, 31.08.2013, 21:00 CET

Liga Portuguesa 2013/2014

Round 3

Estádio José Alvalade, 31.08.2013, 21:00 CET
Ref: Hugo Miguel (AF Lisboa)
46,109 att. (Third best ever in this stadium)



vs

SPORTING CP vs Benfica

The big derby this year came much earlier than usual and although the form of the two teams seemed very different after these first two rounds, that will probably count very little when the ball will start rolling in Alvalade tomorrow evening.

I would be lying if I wouldn't admit that the big majority of sportinguistas is quite hopeful that we can win this one but it's definitely going to be a tough one.

I really like what I've seen so far from Sporting, particularly in the way our midfielders have owned their opponents and with the fast combinations coming from the flanks. On the other hand I keep not being that reassured with the way we defend on set pieces and that's one of the strongest points of Benfica.

In any case I am confident in our boys and I am certain Alvalade will be roaring for this one tomorrow. Hopefully we will get a clean game with no ref mistakes, very different from recent robberies.

Leonardo Jardim called the following players:

Goalkeepers: 1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck

Defenders: 41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 5 Marcos Rojo, 4 Jefferson, 15 Eric Dier and 2 Welder

Midfielders: 14 William Carvalho, 23 Adrien, 10 Gérson Magrão, 21 Rinaudo, 8 André Martins, 18 Carrillo, and 11 Diego Capel

Forwards: 28 Wilson Eduardo, 17 Fredy Montero, 9 Slimani and 92 Salim Cissé

FORÇA SPORTING!!!!!

will be tough to win, Serbian teams tend to be strong on set pieces and like you said that is one of their strong points. they got superstars too like Markovic, Drlovic, mihalovic, beaganovic, fejsa, and some random uruguyans like maxi pereira and they got some new guy called luis cortez. will be hard to win against such a super star team.

Complete and utter domination so far. Loving it.

I can enjoy this too since I'm not at my parents' house watching it with my dad the Benfiquista. p

Montero equals Mário Jardel's record scoring in his first three matches in Portugal.

Oh Montero was offside for the pass when he played the ball to Andre Martins. p

Who cares, still nice goal.

difficult offside to call. no one suspected it until the super slow mo replay. well constructed play, deserved goal.

Break at 30' due to Enzo Perez being almost killed by a Jefferson bomb in his face.

Deserved lead from Sporting. Excellent work by our boys so far.

putting Enzo back in the game was irresponsible and gross medical negligence. even I could tell he was concussed by a mere look at his eyes when he was waiting to come back in.

Re: Enzo's concussion - truly mindboggling that these guys (medical trainers) are among the highest paid in their professions.

What a DIRTY piece of shit Maxi Pereira is.

Should have been a STRAIGHT ****ING RED!

He just tried to shatter Jefferson's leg.

Hyperbole. It was barely foul. Only reason he got a yellow was to appease the overereaching reaction of the home crowd.

Great first half with Sporting showing a lot of confidence not looking a bit disturbed with the fact that we are facing one of the two title contenders. Jardim is winning the tactical battle because, at the same time that he can avoid that Benfica develops their usual strong game through the centre, with help of the great work of our midfield trio, he managed to create real danger through the flanks as it's been the trademark of his Sporting.

There weren't that many goal chances but Sporting was always more dangerous and definitely deserves this lead.

Immense game by Montero so far. Excellent the midfield trio. Carrillo was great at times but irritatingly slow in two key counters that could have given us two more goals.

Benfica lost two very important players due to injury in the last 10' of the first half but they are supposed to have a very deep squad so that shouldn't be a big problem for them. Maxi Pereira should have been sent off for that killer tackle just like Garay should have seen a yellow earlier after a mean tackle on Montero but probably it's better like this.

I agree that Garay deserved a yellow. Should have been booked. Maxi's tackle was all theatrics. A couple extra rolls on the lawn and the booboise can't help but be impressed.
