Olhanense vs SPORTING CP
Many of Sporting's players were involved in the international break so it is always difficult to know if their form was affected. What doesn't seem to be affected is the wave of enthusiasm of the club's fans as never before Olhanense had so many people attending a home game in their history. More than 10,000 tickets have been sold at Estádio do Algarve and it's obvious that the team is not immune to this support.
If we keep the same level of the first three rounds I think we will have a comfortable win, provided that the clown that was appointed to ref this game will not be his usual self whenever he is in charge of one of our games.
Here's the list of players called by Leonardo Jardim:
Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício, Marcelo Boeck.
Defenders: Cédric, Welder, Maurício, Eric Dier, Rúben Semedo and Jefferson.
Midfielders: André Martins, Gérson Magrão, William Carvalho, Rinaudo, Adrien and Vítor.
Forwards: Diego Capel, Carrillo, Wilson Eduardo, Slimani and Fredy Montero.
Marcos Rojo is the only absent due to injury. Rúben Semedo replaces him on the call. Vítor is immediately called after joining the club.
