Liga 13/14 R20| Rio Ave 1-2 SPORTING| Arcos, 22.02.2014, 21:15 CET

Liga Portuguesa 2013/2014

Round 20

Estádio dos Arcos, Vila do Conde, 22.01.2014, 21:15 CET
Ref: Jorge Ferreira (AF Braga)



vs

Rio Ave 1-2 SPORTING CP

Tough away game at Rio Ave. Our opponents have been hard to beat in the last few seasons and their horrible potato field will certainly not help our case.

We will be missing Marcos Rojo, after he saw his 5th yellow last weekend which means either Eric Dier or Rúben Semedo will come in to his place. There is also some curiosity to see if Jardim will bring Slimani into the starting XI as this is his type of game.

Hopefully our fans will keep invanding all these little Porto satellite stadiums and keep the fantastic support that we've been watching this season wherever Sporting played.

These are the 19 players called by Leonardo Jardim:

Goalkeepers: 1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders: 41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 15 Eric Dier, 4 Jefferson, 35 Rúben Semedo and 2 Welder.

Midfielders: 23 Adrien, 14 William Carvalho, 6 Vítor, 8 André Martins, 11 Diego Capel and 18 Carrillo.

Forwards: 28 Wilson Eduardo, 9 Slimani, 17 Fredy Montero, 20 Héldon and 36 Carlos Mané.

Sporting announced its starting XI:

1 Rui Patrício
41 Cédric - 3 Maurício - 15 Eric Dier - 4 Jefferson
14 William Carvalho
8 André Martins - 23 Adrien
28 Wilson Eduardo - 17 Fredy Montero - 20 Heldon

Jardim keeps the usual tactical set up with Wilson starting instead of Mané and Dier coming in for Rojo.

First goal chance coming only at 31' and for Rio Ave with Maurício and Patrício saving our ass with style.

0-0 HT

Montero will miss the next game,

our attack looks harmless.

Not very impressive first half from our side in what is undoubtedly the worst pitch of our league - if you can call that a pitch.

We started well in the first 10'-15' pressing Rio Ave in their defence although not creating real chances. Rio Ave balanced things after that first quarter and later on was the only team that was close to score, even if that happened only once.

We have been very solid in defence, not showing any signs of feeling the absence of Rojo but the problems were evident in the construction of our attacking game. André Martins is having a really poor game showing loads of trouble to adapt to this potato field and our game is suffering from it. Vítor was warming up in the last 10' and I wouldn't be surprised if he comes already after the break.

I was right about André Martins leaving at half time but it's Carlos Mané and not Vítor to come in. A more attacking sub so that's good.

At 51' 1-0 to Rio Ave. Jefferson loses the ball in a very dangerous position, Diego steals the ball, crosses and the ball pinballs into our goal through Mauricío's legs. Bad luck but Jefferson should have done much better there.

At 86' Carlos Mané like a killer inside the box finishing a good cross from the right flank. 2-1 for SCP.
