There's not much to say about this one. If we want still to get to a European position this season we have to win this one. It seems that we had a good game last week so let's hope that the kids use that on their favour.

Line-up:

Rui Patrício
Cédric - Tiago Ilori - Fokobo - Joãozinho
Eric Dier - Rinaudo
Bruma - Adrien - Diego Capel
Ricky van Wolfswinkel



Subs:
Marcelo Boeck, Santiago Arias, Zézinho, André Martins, Carrillo, Jeffrén and Labyad.

At 26' Fokobo makes an unnecessary foul inside the box. Clear penalty. Wilson Eduardo doesn't miss from the spot.

Three minutes later Dier has a very dangerous shot from a direct freekick.

A poor first half from Sporting. Not one single goal chance created, a midfield that doesn't work with Adrien once again proving that he is not good enough for this club. The two wingers are missing in action and so is Ricky. Académica did very little to be ahead but they didn't say not to the gifted pen. Let's see if and when Jesualdo is going to react to this.

Two substitutions at HT:

Fokobo and Bruma replaced by Carrillo and Labyad

But Adrien stays on the pitch :rollani:

Jesualdo took 65' to see the obvious:

André Martins IN for Adrien

1-1 by Ricky :thmbup:

Btw, perfect timing in the run to avoid the offside flag by Joãozinho.

A festival of goal chances for us on added time but the ball is not going in.

We looked a bit better after the two HT subs made by Jesualdo but the game changing moment was the correction of the obvious casting mistake made by our coach tonight. As soon as our midfield started being controlled by André Martins instead of Adrien our football started flowing much faster and much better. Académica's physical breakdown was also obvious in the last quarter of the game and we could have taken better advantage of that.
