Liga 14/15 J21| Belenenses 1-1 SPORTING | Restelo, 14.02.2015, 21:15 CET

Primeira Liga 2014/2015

Jornada 21


Estádio do Restelo, 14.02.2015, 21:15 CET
Ref: Paulo Baptista (AF Portalegre)



vs

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.

5' Tikito makes a back pass to his keeper very close to the goal and the ref waves on.

The typical blue bus tactics of Lito Vidigal have prevailed in these first 45': Belém defending with 10 men behind the ball with the odd free kick or corner in their favour.

Sporting started very well and in the first 20' managed to put a lot of pressure in their defense. Our left wing of Jefferson & Carrillo was particularly active and dangerous but none of the chances created was taken. As usual we lost gas in the middle of the first half but got back on top in the last 10' and once again forced our opponents back to their last third.

More speed is needed so I wouldn't be surprised if Carlos Mané comes in early in the second half.

Marco Silva doesn't waste time and makes a double sub at half time:

Carlos Mané IN for João Mário
Tanaka IN for Montero

46' Patrício spills the slippery ball but ends up going out. Scary stuff.

At 69' 1-0 to Belenenses by Rui Fonte after a blunder by Rui Patrício who tried to kick instead of grabbing a long ball. It happens to the best ones.

If it looked difficult before this self-inflicted goal to win here now it looks almost impossible.

82' Cédric sees the second yellow and is off. He seemed to make a clean tackle but Seixal's Diving School is famous around the world.
