Just a couple of months ago it would seem impossible to predict that Sporting could be so close to the European places in the league table but that's what is really happening now. A win today against struggling Moreirense will put us just one point away from that aimed 5th spot. A win tonight would also mean that we would manage to get 3 straight wins for the first time this season, which just about sums up how horrendous this season has been for the club.

A lot of shit has been spewed by the usual suspects of our sports press about the hypothetical conflict of interests affecting Moreirense's coach Augusto Inácio, who will be at the end of the season a member of Sporting's football department. It's even more hilarious when those critics come from people linked to...Porto :howler:

Jesualdo can't count with Boulahrouz (injured) and Joãozinho (suspended).

Here's the starting XI:


Rui Patrício
Cédric - Tiago Ilori - Marcos Rojo - Miguel Lopes
Rinaudo
Eric Dier - André Martins
Bruma - Ricky van Wolswinkel - Diego Capel


Substitutes: Hugo Ventura, Fokobo, Adrien, Schaars, Labyad, Diego Rubio and Viola.

A soft first 15' from Sporting but at 16' there is a dubious situation with RvW inside Moreirense box. There is contact enough for a pen but it's not called.

Bruma creating havoc on the left but nobody took advantage of his crosses.

Capel scores from the spot after Bruma was crushed inside the box by some Moreirense mug.

Sporting took a long time to put some speed in our game mainly because our midfield attacking players were not being able to break through the Moreirense parked bus. In the last 15' of the first half we started playing faster and that's when the goal came.

André Martins is not having a match as good as in Braga which left our game very much depending on what happens on the wings. Bruma and Capel played better as long as the game progressed but we need to put more speed upfront if we want to increase this score.

Amazing hommage at half time to Maria de Lourdes Borges, who celebrates today 90 years as a Sporting sócia.

Great work by Tiago Ilori launching a pass to Cédric on the right flank who gave a killer assist to RvW finish in the box.

At 72' Aníbal Capela makes it 2-2 with a header from a freekick...in the second dangerous attack by Moreirense in the whole game.
