Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
A very rusty start of game by Sporting not managing to take control of the game thanks to a few misplaced passes and also a slow tempo. When the penalty came it was actually the period when Sporting was starting to take control of the game but that's football.
On the penalty situation it's one of those that really depends on the ref. Patrício does get the Tondela player but he also gets the ball. The red card is also quite harsh.
Sporting played obviously with more urgency after being down on the score and we will have to do another epic second half if we want to win this one.
