Before knowing what was the starting XI for this game I had a secret hope that Sá Pinto could walk the talk and rest most of the players that have been having more minutes for us in the season in order to better prepare the second leg match of the EL Quarter Finals on Thursday against Metalist in Ukraine.

It doesn't matter if we finish 4th or 5th, we will go to the EL next season anyway, what matters now is our European campaign.

Fortunately Sá Pinto did it and here is our line-up for tonight's game:

Rui Patrício
Santiago Arias - Xandão - Daniel Carriço - Evaldo
Elias - Renato Neto
Carrillo - André Martins - Insúa
Diego Rubio


Subs: Marcelo Boeck, André Santos, Schaars, Matías Fernández, Jeffrén, Seba Ribas and Ricky van Wolfswinkel.

Hopefully we will get our first away win in the league since ages. If not, feck it. :pp​

Great attacking move between Carrilo, André Martins and Insúa but the Argentine showed there why he isn't really an attacking player.

Again a great move from the right with Arias making a killer cross to Insúa who wasted his second sitter of the afternoon.

Powerful shot from 30m by Renato Neto well blocked by Oblak.

The one that bounced three or four times before reaching the net and was easily handled by Oblak?

0-0 at half-time. Even first 30 minutes, Sporting better in the last 15 minutes. Very little creativity. Dull football. Leiria will be glad with this.

0-0 at HT

An interesting first half from our B team. We showed the normal problems of a group of players that is probably having their first competitive game together. Adding to that Leiria did bring the bus and they've been defending with 11 men behind the ball, even if they need the points even more than we do.

Santiago Arias was our best player in these first 45' always showing intelligence and motivation, definitely an improvement from João "Zero Brain Cells" Pereira. Good game so far as well from Carrico and André Martins. Insúa missed two incredible sitters which would have certainly been buried by a proper attacking player but he hasn't been bad on the left, together with Evaldo. Elias and Carrillo were our weakest links so far.

I would bring on Jeffrén to kill the game off.

About 25% of the floodlights went off and the ref decides to wait and see if they come back on, even if there is practically no change in the visibility. Ridiculous.

Great save by Rui Patrício from a dangerous direct freekick. First real dangerous situation of Leiria after 75'.

Good move by Matías on the right but Schaars had a bad finishing.
