Belenenses 1-1 SPORTING CP
(Rui Fonte 69'; Carlos Mané 90'+5')
The last second of last Sunday's derby might have taken away our title challenge hopes but I don't believe that lucky goal will break the spirit of this team. We showed we were better than the league leaders and self-proclaimed winners of the current league and we should keep that in mind for what is left of this season.
Tonight we are visiting what can be called the B side of our opponents of last weekend. In the first half of the season they escaped Alvalade with a point thanks to some smart refereeing and more recently undeservedly beat our second string squad for the Piss Cup, so there's one more reason for us to put things right and beat them. They are playing good football, have a decent coach and are coming from an important win at Guimarães.
We are still missing Slimani, still recovering from a thigh injury but apart from that all our squad is available.
The line-up will be posted later on.
