After all the usual pathetic chit chat that surrounds our dear futebolzinho, the semi finals of the League Cup will after all take place tonight. Sporting enters every competition to win and above all, to respect its opponents. We can hardly say the same about our opponents of tonight's game but as our coach said in the pre-match interview, we have nothing to do with what will be the squad selected by Porto for tonight's game.

Apart from Liedson, who got injured last weekend playing at Trofa's potato field and will be out for 2 weeks, and Miguel "Drama Queen" Veloso, Paulo Bento called our first set of players and it is with them that we will do our best to qualify for the second year in a row for the final of this brand new tournament.

Here is our confirmed starting XI:

Tiago
Pedro Silva - Tonel - Polga - Grimi
Adrien
João Moutinho - Izmailov
Romagnoli
Hélder Postiga - Vukcevic


Subs: Rui Patrício, Daniel Carriço, Caneira, Rochemback, Pereirinha, Rodrigo Tiuí and Derlei.​

0-1 at 9' by Tarik. Amateurish defending from our side. Tarik as a true portista celebrated the goal by throwing insults to the stands.

Sporting playing much better during this first quarter but it was our defensive offer that made the difference so far in the score.

Sporting equalizes by Postiga but the ref disallowed it by request of Porto's players. The ball touched his hand but it was clearly unintentional. Well disallowed but ridiculous yellow card.

Hilarious penalty commited by Pedro Emanuel on Polga and our worst player by far in this first half, did not fail to score the deserved equalizer.

Good shot by Moutinho well saved by Nuno. Vuk trying to score from the rebound but he was offside.

1-1 at HT

A good first half with Sporting playing quite well and clearly deserving to be ahead in the score. The only reason we aren't was that silly offer that finished with Porto scoring.

Moutinho, Izmailov and Vukcevic have been very good. Romagnoli, in spite of the goal, has been invisible.

60%-40% in ball possession, 10-3 in shots, 5-0 in corners. A bit like playing Trofense.

Look at your line-up and look at ours.

Clear to see who the big club is... Porto sends the back-ups and youth players to this Piss Cup, and Sporting since they've already been eliminated in the Taca (by FCP) and sit 3rd in the league instead send their best possible team minus Rui Patricio.

Oh Filipe. :proud:

Yes, after watching this first half it's more than clear who the big club is, no doubt about that. :proud:

This time, the comedian was Sapunaru and the victim was Hélder Postiga.

Once again, Romagnoli sent Nuno to the other side. :lick:

lol, at least the last two years it was the Taca that you took seriously.

This year it's the incredible Carlsberg Cup. :dielaugh:

MASSIVE club! HUGE! GIGANTIC! :howler:

Unbelievable backheel pass by Vukcevic leaving Derlei one-on-one with poor old Nuno. Sweet.

Vukcevic is toying with Porto's defenders. :dielaugh:
