Nacional 1-1 SPORTING CP
This league is decided so there is no pressure for this game. Jardim warned that we're not yet on holidays and I hope the players are thinking in the same lines. Slimani seems to be one up for this game as he said on an interview this week that he'll really be looking forward to get a goal against this lot, as when he did it in Alvalade he was robbed of it by the now infamous Manuel Lampião Mota.
We'll be missing two starters, Marcos Rojo and Adrien, both suspended, it is expected that Eric Dier and probably Gérson Magrão will replace them in the starting XI.
Jardim also called the young promising Brazilian creative midfielder Wallyson Mallmann and the Egyptian wizzard Shikabala but I'm not sure if any of them will make their debut for the first team today.
Here is 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 30 Iván Piris.
14 William Carvalho, 8 André Martins, 10 Gérson Magrão, 11 Diego Capel, 18 Carrillo, 42 Wallyson Mallmann and 36 Carlos Mané.
9 Slimani, 17 Fredy Montero, 28 Wilson Eduardo, 20 Héldon and 7 Shikabala.
