This one is most probably our biggest game of the season so far as a good result tonight will take us to our 5th European semi final and will definitely save a season that has been disappointing to say the least.

We have a 2-1 advantage from the first leg, one of the trickiest scores that a team can travel with for the return leg but the truth is that we are ahead in the tie and we should take advantage of it.

I don't expect us to go to Ukraine to defend this advantage as I don't expect Metalist to come on top of us like madmen. In fact numbers show that they are much more dangerous and efficient when playing away than at home, no doubt due to their style of playing based on fast counters.

We've been very good in Europe this season and since Sá Pinto took over it's clear that some players seem more focused and more motivated than before. Let's hope for another great European night from the Lions! :fero:

Here's the starting line-up:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Xandão - Polga - Insúa
André Martins - Schaars
Izmailov - Matías Fernández - Diego Capel
Ricky van Wolfswinkel



Subs: Marcelo Boeck, Evaldo, Renato Neto, André Santos, Carrillo, Seba Ribas and Diego Rubio.​

Horrible offside call on Ricky when he was going alone against the keeper.

Dangerous counter from our right side but JP passed the ball to the keeper.
