We are two games away from reaching our third European final so this is obviously an historical match for the club.

We are going for this one as underdogs as Athletic's brilliant performances against Man Utd and Schalke impressed a lot of people that didn't know them.

The fact is that we also kicked out teams as powerful as those so there is really very little that separates both sides.

It's really a shame that we have lost our most creative player for this first leg, the same Matías Fernández that Bilbao's coach Marcelo Bielsa said wishing so much having playing for his side, but we are Sporting and we're in it to win! :fero:



FORÇA SPORTING!!!!

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


Subs: Marcelo Boeck, Pereirinha, Onyewu, Evaldo, Renato Neto, Carrillo and Diego Rubio.​

Game is on TV here

Izmailov, Van Wolfswinkel and Insua to fire me to the SEAT Ibiza or whatever :stuckup:

Was dubbing between Izmailov and Capel. Went for the Ruski. Probably will get it wrong.

You never know but I'd say you are right. Izma has been in great form in this last stretch of the season.

I just have 6 SCP players in my team. :D

Another good chance for Sporting with RvW shooting very close to the post. Hectic game so far.

Llorente gets his first free header from a corner but it goes well over the crossbar

What an incredible miss by Insúa just wasting a wonderful killer ball by Capel after some 50 metres speed run.

0-0 at HT

A very lively first half with Sporting playing very well in defense completely cancelling any possible danger from the attack minded line-up fielded by Bielsa. Insúa and above all João Pereira have been very good covering the flanks and both have also created danger upfront. We also had the best chances to score almost all of them coming from fast counters or some nice quick passing moves mostly led by Izmailov and André Martins, who has been an excellent replacement of Matías. We are looking good and a tad bit more composure in the last pass will eventually bring the goals.

One minute changed the game against us.

Penalty call on our favour when Amorebieta handles the ball inside their box. On the next move freekick against us badly defended by Insúa and Bilbao gets a goal coming from nowhere. That's football.

And now we got lucky as Amorebieta hits the post after a scrambled corner.
