SPORTING CP 3-2 Braga
(Adrien 57' pen., Montero 76', Slimani 90'; Wilson Eduardo 41', Rafa 45')
Today we reach the end of the first half of this league and no matter what happens we will be on top, something that in the past was always a sign that at the end of the season we would also finish in that position.
We will host the team that recently kicked us out of the Cup in a great game that could easily have ended with a win for any of the two sides. That was the 3rd game in the space of 7 days and that was a Cup tie. Today, everything will be different. Surely Braga will be a tough opponent but as JJ said yesterday in the pre-match press conference, Sporting is passing through our top form curve thus we are indeed favourites.
Another huge crowd expected in Alvalade for another epic show of support.
No surprises in the starting XI with Bruno César keeping his place:
"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”
