SPORTING CP 2-2 Braga

The big party of Portuguese football happens today and we're in it. :)

We haven't one won this one since 2008 so it's about time to get it for the 16th time. It's a great venue and the mood is right to win it. We've showed just a couple of weeks ago that we are far superior to Braga and this squad and this Board deserve a trophy, so let's do it!

Marco Silva called the following 25 players:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício, 22 Marcelo Boeck and 96 Luís Ribeiro.

Defenders:
13 Miguel Lopes, 41 Cédric, 81 André Geraldes, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 55 Tobias Figueiredo, 5 Ewerton, 29 Naby Sarr, 4 Jefferson and 33 Jonathan Silva.

Midfielders:
14 William Carvalho, 25 Oriol Rosell, 23 Adrien, 17 João Mário, 8 André Martins and 27 Ryan Gauld.

Forwards and Wingers:
18 Carrillo, 36 Carlos Mané, 77 Nani, 11 Diego Capel, 10 Fredy Montero, 19 Tanaka and 9 Slimani.

16' Braga scores from the spot by Éder. Djavan manages to escape two tackles and is fouled by Cédric inside the box. It's a penalty but Cédric is sent off when another defender was right next to him. Sporting bummed by the ref.

5' later MS makes the first (forced) sub:

Miguel Lopes IN for João Mário


Unbelievable how Ruben Micael escapes a yellow after his second bookable offence.

At 26' Braga makes 2-0 through Rafa on a counter after one of the usual brainfarts of Miguel Lopes.

it was a PK but not a red
and seems like Rafa is allowed to bulldoze our player and score

Braga parking the bus, SCP was putting crosses in but couldn't finish

guess the cup is going to Braga at this rate.

SPORTING 0-2 Braga at HT

In the build up for this Cup Final there were many Sporting fans that expressed a lot of doubts about whether we would be "allowed" to win this cup. I was naïf enough not to believe in those voices but after this first half there's not much to be said. That red card on Cédric is one of those that you only give if you want to and we could see from kick off what was the tune being played by this ref. Braga using the usual "kick the leg before the ball" tactics of Sérgio Conceicão were allowed to stop our game time after time with no bookings. The tv muppets told us that "he has a British type of refereeing" but that was only applied in the midfield as he suddenly became very Portuguese in the penalty situation.

This game was always going to be a difficult one, because Braga is a good team that likes and knows how to play counter attack football. Sporting did well in the first 15', before the penalty, and even after it we were on top, creating more danger and forcing Braga to play with 11 men behind the ball. It's going to be practically impossible to win this final but hopefully our players will give it all in this second half.

A disastrous game by Miguel Lopes, hopefully his last for the club.
