Despite me thinking that Sportinguistas are haters and wish us nothing but the worse I will have to say that I hope Sporting wins even though this City team is the best team left in the Europa league.

I haven't seen any good football from your side but think that Sporting can at most manage a tie or win at home, but I cannot see you guys knock City out.

With that being said, Portugal needs points, good luck :thumbsup:

Just came back from 12 days in Frogland in time to watch the slaughter. :happy:

I expect nothing from this tie so in fact we have nothing to lose.

Starting line-up:

Rui Patrício
João Pereira - Xandão - Polga - Insúa
Daniel Carrico - Schaars
Izmailov - Matías Fernández - Diego Capel
Ricky van Wolfswinkel​

0-0 at HT

A surprisingly positive first half from Sporting, with everybody showing to be really focused and motivated. Man City seemed happy to contain our attacks in the same way they played at Porto in the previous round but then again that's the way they play against most of their opponents.

Matías was our best player on the pitch showing his great skills and in general everybody in our side had a good first 45'. City had two good chances both coming from corners, the eternal achilles heel of our defence.

What a fantastic goal by Xandão, first shooting against Joe Hart after he saved a freekick from Matías and putting it in with a backheel on the second attempt.

At 59' Mancini brings on Nasri for Barry. Sá Pinto brings on Pereirinha for Izmailov. Oh well.

Why oh why don't we play like this in the league? We are outplaying fringin' Man City!

At 69' Sá Pinto makes the second change: Renato Neto comes in for..Matías. I guess he is happy with the 1-0.
