Benfica 0-3 SPORTING CP
(Teo Gutiérrez 9', Slimani 21', Bryan Ruiz 36')


************

The second derby of the season is here. We won a title on neutral ground in the first one and now it's time to play the second one away from home. The third will happen in about one month from now at home for the Cup.

No need to waste time talking about all the extra-football stuff that has been surrounding this game as now it's time to what really matters - the game played inside the pitch. Sporting has a better team and a better coach, we are ahead in the standings (5 points with a game in hand) but this is a derby which means it will always be a tight one.

Hopefully it will be a great game with no interference from the man with the whistle (and with the meal vouchers + Eusébio's jersey + ticket to Museu do SLB).

JJ picked these players to start and to sit on the bench:

Adrien finds Teo in the box and Júlio César's soft save gives Teo the chance to score from the rebound. 1-0 at 10'.

Great cross from the left and Slimani's king in the air beating all the chickens. 2-0 at 20'.

Great counter attack led by Slimani finished with a strong shotwhich parried by JC and Bryan Ruiz finishes in style. 3-0 at 36'.

What a great show of superiority Sporting has given in this first half. Always looking the team that knew better what to do on the pitch and always doing it better. We were clinical in the goal chances we created but it was in the midfield where our three young Portuguese internationals controlled the game and dictated the tempo. William Carvalho has been sensational closely followed by Adrien and Joăo Mário but also by Bryan Ruiz. Upfront Slimani is bossing and our goals had a lot to do with his movements. It's an incredible statement of quality by Sporting and obviously by JJ.

What a chance for the 4th but Jefferson's shot went a wee wide.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but any news on young Gauld getting near the matchday squad? hope he isn't stagnating too much in the reserves!

I'm also interested in this question.

He's supposed to be the Scottish Messi.
