SPORTING CP 1-0 Vitória de Guimarães
After a week marked by the celebrations of the first year of Bruno de Carvalho's election as SCP's president what better than a win to make a toast to the man that pulled the club from the mud? I'm sure the players are up for it and so will be the many thousands that will be in Alvalade this evening - and many more would be if the game could be played in the afternoon. Hopefully when Sporting TV starts broadcasting later this year we'll be able to see many more afternoon kick offs and give a big stiff middle finger to Olivedesportos' clowns.
We'll be with no injuries to host tricky Guimarães. It's quite possible that after the very good game at Marítimo, LJ will not make any changes from the XI that started that match one week ago.
Our opponents are still involved in the struggle to reach a European spot and although they are a dangerous side they are clearly much more efficient when playing at home.
Let's hope for a good and solid game from the Lions so that we can take one more step towards our goals.
Here's the list of 19 players called by Leonardo Jardim:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.
41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 15 Eric Dier, 4 Jefferson and 5 Marcos Rojo.
23 Adrien, 10 Gérson Magrão, 14 William Carvalho, 6 Vítor, 8 André Martins, 11 Diego Capel, 28 Wilson Eduardo and 18 Carrillo.
17 Fredy Montero, 9 Slimani, 20 Héldon and 36 Carlos Mané.
