Liga 15/16 J18| SPORTING 2-2 Tondela| Alvalade, 15.01.2016, 21:30 CET

Primeira Liga 2015/2016

Jornada 18


Estádio José Alvalade, Lisbon,
15 January 2016, 21:30 CET
36,902 att.
Ref: Luís Ferreira (AF Braga)

SPORTING CP 2-2 Tondela
(Slimani 53', Gelson Martins 61'; Nathan Junior 31' pen., Salva Chamorro 85')


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

Only 5 days after that epic win against Braga we're back in league action. A packed Alvalade will host Tondela who currently are bottom of the table. They are now managed by former Boavista coach Petit which means we can expect only two things from them: two buses parked on top of each other and plenty of tough challenges and other treats of that kind. Add to this a certified lampião as referee and another week of fierce anti-SCP smear campaign on the media and we have all the ingredients to a tough match.

Looking at the list of players called I expect JJ to field the same XI that started in the last two matches. With the quality that we've been showing so far and also with a good deal of patience we'll surely keep the pressure on our rivals.

Here's the players called by JJ, in scrabble style:

JJ makes one change in the team that started the last two matches: Ewerton will be the CB pairing with Naldo. Paulo Oliveira, who is on a verge of getting a 5th yellow, will stay on the bench.

Two changes on the bench as well. Esgaio and Matheus are replaced by Schelotto and Carlos Mané.

At 23' the first time Sporting creates danger is cut by a wrong offside call on Bryan Ruiz

Here's what he feared happening. The Benfica fan with the whistle deems that Rui Patrício tackles a Tondela forward inside the box - the replay shows that he gets the ball - and sends off our keeper. Penalty called too. Marcelo comes in for the place of Bruno César. Nathan Junior makes 1-0 from the spot at 30'. What a circus.

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.

João Mário crosses from the right and Slimani's shot is slightly deflected and gets in. 1-1 at 55'. Sporting playing great football right now.

Great play by Sporting cut on the goal line by a defender with his head. At first looked like it was handball but replays show it wasn't. Right after that another great chance for Sporting.

The great agitator of our football makes the turnaround and with it makes Sporting's goal number 5000 in the league!

2-1 at 61' and Sporting is on top!

Glad they reversed that bullshit handball call. But that was not a red on Patricio. Robbed.

Tondela makes 2-2 at 85' after a long pass to a player that was onside by very little. This time the ref got this offside right. Weird.
