Liga 13/14 R25| SPORTING 1-0 V. Guimarães| Alvalade, 29.03.2014, 21:15 CET

Liga Portuguesa 2013/2014

Round 25

Estádio José Alvalade, 29.03.2014, 21:15 CET

vs


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:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

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

Midfielders:
23 Adrien, 10 Gérson Magrão, 14 William Carvalho, 6 Vítor, 8 André Martins, 11 Diego Capel, 28 Wilson Eduardo and 18 Carrillo.

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

41 Cédric - 3 Maurício - 5 Marcos Rojo - 4 Jefferson
14 William Carvalho
36 Carlos Mané - 23 Adrien
20 Heldon - 9 Slimani - 11 Diego Capel


Subs: 22 Marcelo Boeck, 15 Eric Dier, 6 Vítor, 8 André Martins, 18 Carrillo, 28 Wilson Eduardo and 17 Fredy Montero.

At 6' Slimani gets a fantastic pass from William leaving him one on one with the keeper but he is unable to beat him and ends up diving and getting booked for it. That's why I prefer Montero.

At 8' a bomb from a freekick by Jefferson is saved by the keeper.

At 24' Moreno, the last man, handles the ball just outsuide his box. Only a yellow given by the ref.

What a waste by Mané, after sitting the defender on the ground he crosses right into the keeper's hands.

Heldon kills the ball with his chest inside Vitória's box and the ref calls for a handball. FFS. alm:

A typical first half from Sporting not seeming to be in a hurry to solve the game but also not giving any chances to the opposition. Carlos Mané has been a true devil in that fake number 7 position breaking kidneys like he just don't care. The problem is that the many chances we have created by the runs of our wide players have been wasted with crosses not accurate enough or by the poorest 45' that I've seen from Slimani since he arrived in Alvalade. That chance that he wasted after that marvellous pass by William after only 6' of the game played would have almost for sure been buried by a much more technically gifted Montero.

We need to be more incisive in the second half and start putting some decent crosses in.

Mané goes to the left wing and Montero plays as a fake 7

Rojo gets the ball outside the box turns and shoots with the ball being deflected by a defender and finishing inside the net. 1-0 at 48'.

Montero, yet again this season, scores a completely clean goal and is called offside.

The circus must go on.
