What happened on Tuesday in Gelsenkirchen was really bad but it can in fact have the effect of uniting the team even more. There is a lot of expectation about the amount of sportinguistas that will be in Alvalade for this one as it is now more than ever crucial to show support to this group of players that made us all very proud.
Sporting is playing better and better and this is a great opportunity to show that we can play well and score goals at home as well as we've been doing it away from Alvalade.
Slimani's knock on Tuesday left him out of Marco Silva's options, although his injury is not serious.
Marco Silva called the following 19 players:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.
41 Cédric, 13 Miguel Lopes, 3 Maurício, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 29 Naby Sarr and 33 Jonathan Silva.
14 William Carvalho, 24 Uri Rosell, 23 Adrien, 17 João Mário and 8 André Martins.
Forwards and Wingers:
18 Carrillo, 36 Carlos Mané, 11 Diego Capel, 77 Nani, 10 Fredy Montero and 19 Tanaka.
