FEIRENSE VS SPORTING CP

1-4

Estádio Marcolino de Castro,
29 December 2018, 19:45 WEST

(Tiago Silva (pen.) 24' - 5' Raphinha, 22' Bruno Fernandes, 60' (pen.) Bas Dost, 67' (own goal) Luís Machado)

Lineups:
FEIRENSE: Bruno Brígido; Diga, Bruno Nascimento, Philipe Sampaio and Vítor Bruno; Babanco, Crivellaro and Tiago Silva; Sturgeon, Luís Machado and Edinho

SPORTING: Salin; Ristovski, Coates, Mathieu and Acuña; Petrovic, Miguel Luís and Bruno Fernandes; Diaby, Raphinha and Bas Dost

--------------------
Christmas might've not been kind to Sporting but New Year's Eve Eve Eve was, Sporting came out on top via goal difference against Estoril and Feirense, Keizer got the goal train started again, but it wasn't as easy as it looks.

Sporting opened fairly quickly with a great cut inside and shot from Raphinha, Bas Dost prevented a quick equaliser by clearing a goalbound shot and then Bruno Fernandes doubled the lead with a brilliant chip in the 22nd minute, the tide started to turn as Estoril took the lead in their game and Feirense got one back via a penalty. This didn't rattle Sporting as Bas Dost would make it 3 in the 60th minute with a penalty of our own and Luis Machado's unlucky own goal settled the score. Sporting had rescued their Taça da Liga campaign and will face Braga in the semi-finals.

And thus, Sporting's 2018 concluded, a first of a kind conquest and horrible downfall was met with a new hope with Keizer's attacking football. How hopeful can we get though, we always hate being let down but we let ourselves be doped up on hope in the first place, what has Keizer got in store for 2019?

SPORTING CP VS BELENENSES S.A.D.

2-1

Estádio José Alvalade,
3 January 2019, 21:00 WEST

(Bruno Gaspar 57', Miguel Luís 80' - Fredy 90')

Lineups:
SPORTING: Renan Ribeiro; Bruno Gaspar, Coates, Mathieu and Acuña; Gudelj, Wendel and Miguel Luís; Nani, Diaby and Bas Dost

BELENENSES: Muriel; Diogo Viana, Gonçalo Silva, Sasso and Zakarya; Nuno Coelho, André Santos, Eduardo and Lucca; Fredy and Licá

--------------------

In a low-scoring night at Alvalade, Sporting kicked off 2019 by taking advantage of Benfica's misfortune to take back 2nd place, putting them back on track for an unlikely title fight.

Belenenses started off with 2 good chances in a space of a minute, even hitting the post with one chance, however Sporting eventually took charge of the match with 2 good chances of their own, one saved and one hit the post, whatever Belenenses did, Sporting did aswell and that's how the half ended goaless.

Bruno Gaspar opened the scoring following an unlucky deflection, for Belenenses that is, Miguel Luís would score the winner 13 minutes later with a stunning strike just inside of the box. However, Belenenses got one back following a save by Renan and that's how the game ended, Sporting were back in second place with all to play for just 2 games before facing the league leaders, Porto.

Next up, Tondela. After that, Porto. No second chances.

CD TONDELA VS SPORTING CP

2-1

Estádio João Cardoso,
7 January 2019, 19:00 WEST

(Juan Delgado 6', Tomané 74' - Mathieu 76')

Lineups:
TONDELA: Cláudio Ramos, David Bruno, Ricardo Costa, Ricardo Alves and Joãozinho; Hélder Tavares, Bruno Monteiro and Jaquité; Xavier, Tomané and Delgado

SPORTING: Renan, Bruno Gaspar, Coates, Mathieu and Acuña; Bruno Fernandes, Gudelj and Wendel; Raphinha, Diaby and Nani

--------------------
7 days into the new year, Sporting (realistically) bow out of the title race with their 2nd loss in 3 matches to a dominant Tondela, a far cry from Keizer's original 30 goals in 7 matches record, since then we have only scored 3.

Tondela started the match as the stronger team, which was evident as they scored just 5 minutes into the match from a close-range header, Sporting struggled to recover and couldn't get the equaliser, the match quickly got aggressive as Nani got fouled and provoked or was provoked by the Tondela players, getting a booking alongside the one that committed the foul and it happened again following a Diaby dive later on. Renan did an important save to keep Tondela at bay, but it was 1-0 to Tondela at the break.

Tondela started the half with a strong chance, a free kick that was saved by Renan, João Jaquité saw red in the 51st minute, shifting the pendulum in Sporting's favour, Montero missed an amazing chance to equalise after the ball bouncing betrayed him, Tomané foreshadowed his trivela greatness by striking the bar with a shot, Diaby missed a great chance to equalise and again Sporting were punished with Tomané doing a trivela to put any hope of a win down.

Sporting would fight back and get a goal through Jeremy Mathieu through a dubious series of events, Sporting kept pushing on and hit the post with a badly aimed header, and that was it, Sporting were beaten for the first time in 2019, and this was costly as this pretty much realistically ended any sort of title hope, Sporting are out once more.

Sporting play Porto next in a meaningless match as we are 8 points behind Porto, in this league, that's simply impossible to overcome and now that Porto has gotten Pepe back, that's game over for pretty much everyone else. We'll just have to focus on the Europa League, Taça de Portugal and the Taça da Liga, it's game over here at the hands of Tondela, much like what Benfica had last year, and it's not even March yet.

SPORTING CP VS FC PORTO

0-0

Estádio José Alvalade,
12 January 2019, 15:30 WEST

(None)

Lineups:
SPORTING: Renan; Bruno Gaspar, Coates, Mathieu and Jefferson; Gudelj, Wendel and Bruno Fernandes; Nani, Bas Dost and Diaby

PORTO: Casillas; Maxi, Felipe, Militão and Alex Telles; Corona, Herrera, Danilo and Brahimi; Marega and Soares

--------------------
Both Sporting and Porto came out of the first derby of 2019 bitterly disappointed, the Sportinguistas feeling underwhelmed at their team's tactic of playing not to lose and the Portistas due to not being able to score, being the second team to not be able to score past Keizer's Sporting, the first team being Vorskla Poltava.

But this is not to say that the match had no chances whatsoever, however the dangerous attacks were nullified by defending and the goalkeepers, Porto's most dangerous chance came from a Soares shot which was saved by Renan, the follow-up was saved aswell and Sporting's most dangerous chance came after a Gudelj longshot being saved by Cassilas.

The first derby of the year ended up being a massive disappointment for both sides, Keizer will be hoping to regain the trust he had at the start of his reign against Feirense, in the fight for a Semi-Final place.

FEIRENSE VS SPORTING CP

0-2

Estádio Marcolino de Castro,
16 January 2019, 20:45 WEST

(None - Wendel 64', Bruno Fernandes 66')

Lineups:
FEIRENSE: Bruno Brígido, Diga, Briseño, Nascimento and Tiago Gomes; Babanco, Aly Ghazal, Vítor Bruno and Valencia; Tavares and Steven Petkov

SPORTING: Salin, Ristovski, Coates, Mathieu and Acuña, Gudelj, Wendel, Bruno Fernandes, Nani, Raphinha and Bas Dost

--------------------
Sporting qualified for the semi-finals of the Taça de Portugal in a game that was decided by two longshots, but it could've been 4-0 had Bas Dost's header not been inexplicably ruled out and if Bas Dost had also not been infected by the spirit of Bryan Ruiz, missing an open goal before Sporting scored the two goals that saw them through.

Sporting started dominating the match quickly, having their fair share of shots with Wendel barely missing the goal early on, Bas Dost scored a header in the 34th minute but it was ruled out for seemingly no reason, the replays are unclear regarding the foul that Dost apparently committed, Feirense almost scored after a brilliant pass but Salin was on top of it, right before half time, Bruno Fernandes had a good shot but the goalkeeper was able to parry it and then Bas Dost headed the ball point blank at the goalkeeper right after, 0-0 at the break.

Sporting's first chance in the second half was Bas Dost's open goal miss, giving every Sporting fan a flashback of Bryan Ruiz, but again it wasn't the first time he missed an open goal, but this time it didn't matter as Wendel struck a beautiful shot to open the scoring, Bruno Fernandes sealed the deal in the 66th minute with a hit that nobody saw coming, Salin performed another wonderful save to keep the cleansheet, Luiz Phellype almost got his first goal for Sporting with yet another longshot which unfortunately hit the post, but the semi-final place was confirmed.

We play Moreirense next but February is gonna be a fun time to be in Lisbon as Sporting vs Benfica is scheduled to happen 2 times in 3 days, for the League and Cup, and it could even be 3 times if Sporting and Benfica win their League Cup semi-finals, this should be interesting to see, but as for the League, there's still a lot of work to do.

SPORTING CP VS MOREIRENSE FC

2-1

Estádio José Alvalade,
19 January 2019, 18:00 WEST

(Nani 3', Bruno Fernandes 26' - Tavares 31')

Lineups:
SPORTING: Renan; Ristovski, Coates, Mathieu and Acuña; Gudelj, Wendel and Bruno Fernandes; Nani, Diaby and Dost

MOREIRENSE: Jhonatan; Alberto, Dos Santos, Halliche and Rúben Lima; Chiquinho, Loum, Fábio Pacheco and Pedro Nuno; Heri and Arsénio

--------------------
Sporting got a hard fought win against Moreirense and the refereeing team, the result could've been much more comfortable had it not been for the mindboggling decisions made by Rui Costa and his team.

Sporting started out the match immediately on top, Nani scoring the headed goal from the corner, Diaby almost made it 2 by getting his header just tipped wide enough to hit the bar and bounce out, Bruno Fernandes would eventually get the second goal after the goalkeeper spilled Ristovski's shot and Bruno Fernandes was in the perfect position to make it 2-0. Bas Dost had a golden opportunity to make it 3-0 but scooped the shot wide, that's just how it is when Bas Dost is out of form. The first controversial refereeing moment came with Bas Dost being brought down in the box, Moreirense scored from the counter attack, Bas Dost was infuriated by the referee's controversial decision to not award the penalty even after checking VAR.

The second half was a drab no-show until the second refereeing calamity of the day which saw Raphinha get a perfectly legal goal ruled out for offside even though Raphinha was just on the line, the crowd at Alvalade was already restless from basically wasting their time in the second half, the one time Sporting was able to do something well it was chalked off for offside, guess whoever is checking VAR fell asleep and just went "Yeah, sure man it's offside".

Sporting play Braga next in the League Cup semi-finals, the way things are going Sporting are not looking very likely to retain their trophy or atleast get to the final, we'll just have to see what happens.

SC BRAGA VS SPORTING CP

1-1



Estádio Municipal de Braga,
23 January 2019, 19:45 WEST

(Dyego Sousa 3' - Sebastián Coates 37')

Lineups:
BRAGA: Marafona, Marcelo Goiano, Bruno Viana, Raúl Silva and Sequeira; Claudemir, Ryller, Ricardo Esgaio and João Novais; Wilson Eduardo and Dyego Souza

SPORTING: Renan Ribeiro, Rivstovski, Coates, Mathieu and Acuña; Gudelj, Bruno Fernandes and Wendel; Raphinha, Nani and Luiz Phellype

--------------------

Braga had the home advantage and the morale advantage as there was a lot of criticism on how Sporting's playstyle had become a far cry from the fast, attacking football brought by Keizer and after 3 minutes, they were proven right as Dyego Souza was able to head it past a fumbling Renan and a sleeping Mathieu, Wilson Eduardo had a golden chance to make it 2-0 just 2 minutes later but choked the volley for Renan to catch, however the pendulum started shifting in Sporting's favour, with Sporting having shot after shot but Marafona was able to stop them, however Coates was able to bullet a header just like he used to do many times past a motionless Marafona for the 1-1.

The second half started much like the first, with Braga scoring in half of the time, however VAR were admittedly kind to Sporting, ruling out the goal as Acuña was pushed to the floor, this fed motivation into Braga to try to get the goal, and they came close with Renan having to do a fingertips save and later a free kick save and eventually they would hit the bar from a header, the match later grew stale as both teams seemingly agreed to the penalty shootout.

Renan became the unlikely hero of the shootout as he and Marafona were on a penalty saving streak after Bas Dost surprisingly missed the first penalty from the shootout, eventually Bruno Fernandes was the first to find the net and Nani's miss and Dyego Souza's goal meant that it would go to sudden death, Renan went on to save Ryller's shot to send Sporting to their second consecutive Taça da Liga final.

The final will be against Porto, it's gonna be a tough match as we don't have the squad to beat Porto as we did in the Taça da Liga and Taça de Portugal last season, so i think just getting to the final was a great feat in itself.

FC PORTO VS SPORTING CP

1-1



Estádio Municipal de Braga,
26 January 2019, 19:45 WEST

(Fernando Andrade 79' - Bas Dost (pen.) 90+1')

Lineups:
PORTO: Vaná; Militão, Felipe, Pepe and Alex Telles; Corona, Herrera, Óliver and Brahimi; Marega and André Pereira

SPORTING: Renan; Ristovski, Coates, André Pinto and Acuña; Gudelj, Bruno Fernandes and Wendel; Nani, Raphinha and Bas Dost

--------------------

Sporting does it again, this time with a weakened squad, the Lions successfully retained their title through much suffering. Just like last year, Sporting did it through a penalty shootout as Porto's penalty kick woes continued.

The first half saw Sporting completely dominant, having a couple of good chances, most notably Bruno Fernandes' free kick at the very end of the first half which was just wide of the post, however in the second half Sporting started fading away as Porto took control, Porto almost opened the scoring with a header but Renan's strong hands parried it, however in Porto's goals, Renan's hands had turned to jelly as he spilled the shot directly to Fernando Andrade to make it 1-0 to Porto with little time left.

Porto looked certain to win their first ever League Cup as Sporting gave it everything they had but yet nothing worked, however with 2 minutes to go, Diaby was brought down in the box, VAR was checked and Sporting was awarded a penalty. Bas Dost, who had been out of form, put the penalty past Vaná with plenty of force, and with only a few minutes to go, Sporting could've grabbed the winner as Vaná's save almost made the ball go into his own net, but still Sporting had unexpectedly dug themselves out of the hole and forced a penalty shootout.

Dost bravely opened the shootout after missing against Braga, Alex Telles equalised the score with his, Coates skied his penalty, giving Porto a morale boost, however that didn't matter when Militão sent Renan the wrong way but hit it wide, Bruno Fernandes put Sporting back in the lead, and Renan redeemed himself for conceding a calamitous goal by saving Hernani's shot, Nani put his away and Sporting were crowned champions again when Felipe hit the bar, showing that even after Alcochete, Sporting are still a force to be reckoned with.

Just as long as it's not in the Liga NOS.

The league returns on the 30th against Vitoria de Setúbal and right after that Lisbon burns down with Sporting vs Benfica home and away for the League and Cup. It's going to be a wild ride.

VITORIA DE SETÚBAL VS SPORTING CP

1-1

Estádio do Bomfim,
30 January 2019, 19:00 WEST

(Cádiz 24' - Dost 80')

Lineups:
V. SETÚBAL: Cristiano; Mano, Dankler, Vasco Fernandes and André Sousa; Mikel, Rúben Micael and Nuno Valente; Zequinha, Jhonder Cádiz and Mendy

SPORTING: Renan; Ristovski, Coates, Petrovic and Jefferson; Doumbia, Bruno Fernandes and Wendel; Raphinha, Diaby and Bas Dost

--------------------
On Sporting kitman and legend Paulinho's birthday, Sporting grinded out a mediocre 1-1 draw which saw the Benfica match barely matter as getting the Champions League spot would be basically impossible, the referee was a throwback to the Apito Dourado days, even sending off Ristovski even though he got a hefty elbow to the head, no wonder we haven't won the league in 17 (and counting) years.

The first half started with the writing on the wall as Vitoria Setúbal started out strongly, Sporting also had chances of their own but it was Cádiz opening the scoring with a wonderfully dribbled goal and slotted it past Renan who narrowly got it, Sporting kept pushing on to find the equaliser but nothing came from it even after some good chances.

The second half was way more lively, and it started with the controversial sending off of Ristovski after getting elbowed in the head as a result of verbally insulting the referee, when in fact he was in the right side as he got a heavy blow to the head but yet he saw red, that wouldn't be the last time the referee would harm Sporting as he turned down a couple of stonewall penalties, most notably Raphinha getting brought down in the box. There was a glimmer of hope when Bas Dost scored but surprise surprise, Sporting couldn't finish the job. Hell, Sporting almost lost after Nani's horribly executed backpass forced Renan to make a shot just to save our blushes.

It's always Sporting ****ing up before a derby isn't it, the Lisbon derby basically means nothing in the league as the points gap from Sporting to Benfica is 6 points, and to Porto it's now 10. Atleast we have the Cup and the Europa League to look forward to, but the league has run its course and Sporting are looking at their first sub-third finish since 2013, their first time 4th since 2012.

SL BENFICA VS SPORTING CP

2-1

Estádio da Luz,
6 February 2019, 20:45 WEST

(Gabriel 16', Ilori (o.g.) 64' - Bruno Fernandes 82')

Lineups:
BENFICA: Svilar; André Almeida, Rúben Dias, Jardel and Grimaldo; Samaris, Gabriel, Salvio and Pizzi; João Félix and Seferovic

SPORTING: Renan; Bruno Gaspar, Coates, Ilori and Borja; Gudelj, Wendel and Bruno Fernandes; Acuña, Jovane Cabral and Luiz Phellype

--------------------
Ilori's own goal doomed Sporting to defeat in the 1st leg of the Taça de Portugal semi-final, however Bruno Fernandes' wonderful free kick kept Sporting alive for the 2nd leg.

Benfica started out strongly as expected but Sporting were able to weather the storm until the 16th minute where Gabriel slammed it home after a good pass by Pizzi, Renan was even able to get a hand to it. Nearing the end of the first half, Svilar made another mistake which gave the equaliser to Luis Phellype on a plate, not only was it saved but it was also offside, and that's how the first half ended.

Sporting started out much stronger in the second half, even Wendel had a chance of a lifetime to make it 1-1 but he sent it painfully wide, it was closer to the corner flag to the goal. Ilori gave Benfica their second goal after the ball bounced off his leg, this came at a time where Sporting were stronger but yet couldn't get it done, as usual. What followed was missed chances on both sides as Benfica missed a half-open goal and Wendel hit his last contribution of the game just wide.

With 10 minutes to go, João Félix missed his chance to make it 3-0, and right after that Bruno Fernandes got a crucial goal back from a wonderfully hit free kick. The most controversial moment came in the 90th minute when Bas Dost was robbed of the equaliser after the referee wrongly believed that Svilar was fouled even if he was out of the small area of protection and that's how the result stood.

Two defeats in a row against Benfica in the space of just a week, the league was pretty much already a lost cause even if Porto's giving a homage to our 2015-16 season but we can't let the cup slip.

FEIRENSE VS SPORTING CP

1-3

Estádio Marcolino de Castro,
10 February 2019, 20:00 WEST

(Steven Petkov 76' - 44' Flávio, 59', 69' Bruno Fernandes)

Lineups:
FEIRENSE: André Moreira; Diga, Flávio, Antonio Briseno and Vítor Bruno; Cris and Marco Soares; Sturgeon, Tiago Silva, Jose Valencia and João Silva

SPORTING: Renan; Ristovski, Coates, Ilori e Borja; Gudelj, Bruno Fernandes e Wendel; Diaby, Acuña e Bas Dost

--------------------
Feirense and Sporting have played eachother so many times they must be the best of friends, however Feirense aren't as friendly as they kept trying to push Renan around to get a goal, however Bruno Fernandes' brace won the match for Sporting.

Feirense started off superior like always, forcing Renan to make two saves and the Feirense goal came when Renan was shoved into his own goal and Flávio's header went in, VAR ruled the goal out rightfully.

Sporting opened the scoring after Flávio headed the ball, this time into his own net. Bruno Fernandes made it 2-0 in the 59th minute with yet another header and finished the job with yet another beautiful free kick, although from a closer range than his Benfica goal.

Petkov scored a wonderful bicycle kick following a defensive mistake by Sporting but it was not enough and Sporting walked away with 3 points.

SPORTING CP VS SC BRAGA

3-0

Estádio José Alvalade,
17 February 2019, 20:00 WEST

(Bruno Fernandes 33', Bas Dost (pen.) 50', 68' - None)

Lineups:
SPORTING: Renan; Ristovski, Coates, Ilori and Borja; Gudelj, Wendel and Bruno Fernandes; Diaby, Acuña and Bas Dost

BRAGA: Tiago Sá; Goiano, Raúl Silva, Bruno Viana and Sequeira; Esgaio, Claudemir, Fransérgio and João Novais; Dyego Sousa and Paulinho

--------------------
Braga were shoved aside as yet another Bruno Fernandes free kick and a Bas Dost brace gave Sporting a much needed win as they are still hoping to close the gap, as unlikely as that may be.

Sporting dominated from the get go, Bas Dost had a chance to make it 1-0 to Sporting in the 14th minute but the shot went straight at the goalkeeper, 2 minutes later Bruno Fernandes had a very good shot but Tiago Sá saved it, he would have the last laugh as Bruno Fernandes made it 1-0 after a wonderful free kick 12 minutes from the break.

Bas Dost woke up in the second half after scoring a penalty, like always, when Diaby was tripped up and made it 3-0 to Sporting. Bruno Fernandes almost made it 4-0 for Sporting with yet another free kick but it was easily caught.

A very good win for Sporting which regained faith in a top 3 finish.

Bruno Fernandes couldn't do anything to fight back the UEFA mafia and Bas Dost's emulation of Bryan Ruiz.

it won't be broadcasted because we are still behind braga

--------------------
Despite playing some of their best football this season, Marítimo's goalkeeper had a man of the match performance by saving 5 shots to deny Sporting a crucial win on the pursuit of 3rd place.

Sporting are now 3 points behind Braga after they lost their last 2 matches and 5 away from Moreirense, who are hoping to get a place in the Europa League.
