Ref: Bruno Esteves (AF Setúbal)




vs

Rio Ave 0-1 SPORTING CP
(Nani 48')



Last match of the league against one of Jorge Mendes's clubs, just one week before the Cup final against...another Jorge Mendes club - Portuguese football is really great.

Many players rested (Rui Patrício, Paulo Oliveira, Jefferson, William, Adrien and Carrillo) and some new faces from our great B team (Luís Ribeiro, Wallyson and Matheus Pereira).

Hope nobody gets injured and also hope lampião Esteves will not manage to suspend someone for the Cup final.

List of 18 players called:

Goalkeepers:
22 Marcelo Boeck and 96 Luís Ribeiro.

Defenders:
13 Miguel Lopes, 41 Cédric, 55 Tobias Figueiredo, 29 Naby Sarr, 4 Ewerton and 33 Jonathan Silva.

Midfielders:
24 Oriol Rosell, 42 Wallyson, 17 João Mário and 8 André Martins.

Forwards and Wingers:
36 Carlos Mané, 77 Nani, 73 Matheus Pereira, 19 Tanaka, 10 Fredy Montero and 9 Slimani.

Great attack by Sporting with Jonathan's cross being met by Nani who forced the keeper to a great save.

At 28' Rio Ave hits the post for the second time after a very long range free-kick. The very strong wind in their favour has been a big factor though.

On the stroke of half time a fantastic header by Slimani is saved by the keeper on the goal line. In fact it's not clear if the ball passed the line but goal line technology is for real leagues only.

Rio Ave 0-0 SPORTING at HT

A very balanced first half with both teams creating chances. Rio Ave seems to be more willing to run which is not surprising as they don't have a Cup final to play next weekend. Still, it would be nice to see a bit more effort from some of our players. People like André Martins, Miguel Lopes or even Slimani are really not showing up. Nani, Marcelo, Ewerton and Jonathan on the other hand are having a good game so far.

Very nice counter led by Jonathan on the left finished with a smooth centre that finds Nani in the box who heads the ball right on the top left corner. 1-0 at 48'.

Great chance for Montero but his header went straight at the keeper.
