We're back in Europe this time to face the newbies of FC Vaslui from Romania, who are actually our biggest opponents in this group when looking at the current table. We shouldn't underestimate them but we are playing good football and are on a series of 7 consecutive wins so I am confident we will get the 8th.

Our defense is highly decimated with Insúa suspended for one match after his red card against Lazio and Onyewu and Rodriguez not being called due to injuries. The other two CBs, Daniel Carriço and Polga, are also not at 100% so Domingos was forced to call U19 Tiago Ilori, who did the pre-season with the first team, as a back up.

Here's the offical line-up:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Daniel Carriço - Polga - Evaldo
Rinaudo
Matías Fernández - Schaars
Pereirinha - van Wolfswinkel - Diego Capel



Bench: Marcelo Boeck, Tiago Ilori, André Santos, André Martins, Carrillo, Bojinov and Diego Rubio.


FORÇA SPORTING!!!! :fero:

Sporting dominating and Vaslui distributing fouls for all tastes.

At 38' Wesley headbutts João Pereira from behind and is sent off. :thumbsup:

Rinaudo insisted, Matías broke the kidneys of another defender for the uptenth time in this match and Evaldo taps in. Nice and deserved.

SPORTING 1-0 Vaslui at HT

This first half reminded me somehow what happened in our previous match at Famalicão as Domingos experiments are not exactly paying back. This time it was the bet on Pereirinha that failed to bring anything good to one of our attacking wings. This guy is for a footballer what rosé is for wine - a wishywashy tasteless pink fluid, soft defending and shy like a raindeer attacking. This was even more obvious because for me our best player in this first half was also playing on the right side of our attack. Matías was brilliant and only the lack of support did not allow him to be more efficient. He created the only goal so far but could have done even more if only he wouldn't have been forced to play for two.

The rest of the team was OK, with Capel always very important in unbalancing the opposing team, today surprisingly well supported by Evaldo. Schaars has been very wasteful on the inumerous dead ball situations created by the constant fouling from the Romanian butchers.

Vaslui were horrible. Unable to create anything upfront and only capable of stopping our game through dirty fouls.

With one man advantage and if Pereirinha is replaced by Carrillo or even Diego Rubio we should seal off this one quite comfortably.

Diego Capel run a 60 metres diagonal with the ball, left it to Carrillo who nutmegs a defender just outside the box and Matías picks it up in the box to finish with class. What a beauty. :lick:

At 73' Ricky Volkswagen is subbed by Bojinov. No goal for the Iceman tonight but nice to see Boji getting some playing time.
