After what was arguably our worst game in this season last Thursday against Basel we are back in the league to face the second from last in the table, a team that already kicked us out of the Cup. To be honest we didn't deserve to lose that game so I hope those that were involved in that game can take that into account.

Vercauteren has been changing the team constantly, which is obviously understandable, although doesn't really help much creating a solid unit.

In the back it would be great to see Eric Dier having another chance as a starter. Unfortunately Boulahrouz is still absent meaning that Xandão will still be in the first XI. Let's see what will be the midfield trio and also whether he will finally give a chance to Carrillo from kick-off.

The line-up will be posted later.

Line-up is out with two good news and one bad...

Rui Patrício
Eric Dier - Xandão - Rojo - Insúa
Elias - Schaars
Carrillo - Pranjic - Diego Capel
van Wolfswinkel

Great to see Eric Dier instead of Cédric and also Carrillo from the start. Too bad Rinaudo is still sitting on the bench.

It will be interesting to see if the ref will make sure to book Rojo and van Wolfswinkel so that they can't face Benfica in the coming round.

Good start from us playing the first 10' in their half.

Brilliant move by Carrillo escaping 4 defenders but a lump of turf made the ball bounce and made him lost control of the ball when he was going straight on goal.

Yeah we look much more solid so far but wolfswimkel looks isolated and hasn't had any good chance to really take a shot on goal

At 40' 1-0 to Moreirense by Olivera with our CBs looking very bad on a goal coming out of nowhere.

To help things even more Schaars is injured and needs to go out. Rinaudo comes in at 44'.

At 45' Ghilas makes it 2-0. Terrible defending from our two CBs.

Half time.

We actually started well this game as until around 20' we were practically only playing on our opponent's half, with Carrillo and Dier combining very well on the right wing.

From then on Moreirense balanced the game but never really creating any danger. Their first goal did come out of nowhere and Sporting right now is in such a state that whenever we go down on the score the team just crumbles like a sand castle. Another black page on this horrendous season, it seems.

Capel doesn't take advantage of a gift by their keeper inside the box.

Great chance for the 3rd by Carrillo but the keeper saved for a corner.

Incredible miss by Carrillo who was brilliant gaining space for the shot but missed the goal.

At 90' Carrillo, on a yellow, is subbed by Labyad.

Moreirense has been faking injuries for the whole of the second half.
