Penafiel 0-4 SPORTING CP
(Slimani 69', 71', Montero 82', Nani 85')
After two of the toughest matches of the season, against Porto and Chelsea, which we couldn't win but where we showed great character and some moments of very good football, we're facing one of the newcomers of this season's league.
Maybe it's an opportunity for Marco Silva to rotate some of the players although this is a game that we really need to win.
Maurício is out due to that head injury sustained against Chelsea. It seems that it's a great chance to Paulo Oliveira to show that he is good enough to be on the first XI.
Marco Silva called the following 20 players:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.
41 Cédric, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 29 Naby Sarr, 55 Tobias Figueiredo, 4 Jefferson and 33 Jonathan Silva.
23 Adrien, 14 William Carvalho, 8 André Martins, 24 Uri Rosell and 17 João Mário.
Forwards and Wingers:
11 Diego Capel, 18 Carrillo, 9 Slimani, 20 Heldon, 77 Nani, 19 Tanaka and 10 Fredy Montero.
