Ref: Duarte Gomes (AF Lisboa)
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:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.
41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 29 Naby Sarr, 4 Jefferson and 33 Jonathan Silva.
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.
