Liga 14/15 J14| Nacional 0-1 SPORTING| Madeira, 21.12.2014, 20:15 CET

Primeira Liga 2014/2015

Jornada 14


Estádio da Madeira, Funchal, 21.12.2014, 20:15 CET
Ref: Duarte Gomes (AF Lisboa)



vs

Nacional 0-1 SPORTING CP
(Carlos Mané 51')


It's never easy to play in Madeira and although Nacional is having a poor start of season we should expect trouble...and when the ref is called Duarte Gomes the trouble will be served in double size.

Nothing else but a win is what we need and hopefully that will be the attitude from the players tonight. Looking at the list of players called it seems that Cédric will be back in the first team and probably Jefferson too. In midfield and upfront it's not yet clear who will be in the starting line-up.

Here are the players called by Marco Silva:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders:
41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 29 Naby Sarr, 4 Jefferson and 33 Jonathan Silva.

Midfielders:
14 William Carvalho, 23 Adrien, 17 João Mário, 8 André Martins, 24 Uri Rosell and 32 Slavchev.

Forwards and Wingers:
9 Slimani, 10 Fredy Montero, 18 Carrillo, 19 Tanaka, 20 Heldon and 36 Carlos Mané.

Starting line-up and subs:

1 Rui Patrício

41 Cédric - 26 Paulo Oliveira - 3 Maurício - 33 Jonathan Silva

14 William Carvalho

8 André Martins - 23 Adrien

18 Carrillo - 9 Slimani - 36 Carlos Mané


Subs: 22 Marcelo Boeck, 29 Naby Sarr, 4 Jefferson, 17 João Mário, 24 Uri Rosell, 20 Heldon and 10 Fredy Montero.


Jefferson recovered from injury but still stays on the bench.

André Martins' good performance in the mid week Cup tie earns him a spot in the first XI.

We're back on 4x3x3.

At 9' Carlos Mané gets the first shot on goal in the game for a save of their keeper.

At 10' André Martins is injured and needs to be subbed by João Mário. Unlucky.

Good chance to João Mário at 18' but his header went over the bar.

At 45+1 incredible miss by Mané who literally gives the ball to the keeper a couple of metres from goal after a corner.

Not a very good first half but Sporting ended up creating enough chances to justify the goal that still didn't happen. Slimani is, as usual, working his socks off but only Carrillo seems able to give him the support he needs. Carlos Mané is not in form and he is showing it again today. To win this one we need to be more direct.

Again from a corner we create a goal: Slimani wins in the first floor, Gottardi saves and Mané taps in. A deserved 1-0 lead at 51'.

A very important win in a very tough stadium with one of the shittiest pitches in the league.

Great attitude of the team in the second half showing more energy and more intelligence in the way we set our attacking game.

After reaching the deserved lead we kept control of the game and even after Adrien's sending off we always managed to keep the ball (excellent work by Carrillo!) and create more danger.

A nice xmas present from the team to all of us sportinguistas.
