Liga 15/16 J34| Braga 0-4 SPORTING| Braga, 15.05.2016, 19:00 CET

Primeira Liga 2015/2016

Jornada 34 (Last)


Estádio Municipal de Braga,
15 May 2016, 18:00 CET

Ref: Hugo Miguel (AF Lisboa)

Braga 0-4 SPORTING CP
(Teo Gutiérrez 20', Slimani 32', Bryan Ruiz 71', 80')


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

That's it: the last game of the league and we still can win it. For that to happen we need to win this match and we also need that our direct rivals drop points at home against a poor Nacional. Difficult but definitely not impossible.

We are facing a team that showed a very different type of attitude in the games played against us and those played against our rivals but, truth to be said, they were not the only ones. We needed an epic turnaround to beat them for the league in Alvalade, in one of the most memorable games of this incredible season, and I don't expect them to show less intent today. Their match of the season will be next weekend against Porto in the Cup final but I am sure they will do all they can to stand in our way.

Like it happened in every single one of the last 8 matches we've played in this last stretch of the season, I believe we will do what is needed to win the title: to win. We did it scoring 26 goals and conceding only 6 while playing some really good football. More of the same is what we ask and then we will see if that is enough to celebrate.

The starting XI will be posted here later one.

Big blow for us. Coates gets a muscle injury and needs to be subbed off only after 15'. Paulo Oliveira will come in for his place.

Great attacking move by Sporting with Joăo Mário launching Bryan Ruiz on the left and his perfect cross finds Teo in the box who finishes with class. 1-0 at 20'.

William is fouled right outside the box, the ref initially calls a penalty but afterwards changes his mind and calls a free kick. Braga's defender was sent off.

Great cross by Bruno César from the left and a Slimaniesque header makes the 2-0 after 33'. Sporting in total control.

Superb first half by Sporting not giving any chance to Braga. From the start of the game we showed what we wanted from this game and we got it. No signs of Adrien's absence in our game because Gelson and Joăo Mário's mobility completely shifted the midfield, and the game, in our favour. Once again we're showing who's the best team in this country inside the pitch. Unfortunately outside the pitch we saw some confrontations betweens fans of the two clubs because apparently Braga's supporters were celebrating a goal scored by...Benfica - a real symbol of what this season has been.

Great chance for the 3-0 after one more great dribble by Gelson.
