Liga Portuguesa 2013/2014

Round 10

Estádio Dom Afonso Henriques, Guimarães, 24.11.2013, 20:15 CET
Ref: Paulo Baptista (AF Portalegre)




vs

Vitória de Guimarães 0-1 SPORTING CP

After one more long international break we are back in Liga action to play in one of the toughest grounds in the country. Vitória are always very hard to play away backed by their crazy fans and they once again have a solid team this season.

Sporting's players that represented their country were on a high with Rui Patrício and William Carvalho (who had his A team debut!) helping Portugal to qualify to the World Cup, Islam Slimani doing the same with Argelia, and Marcos Rojo playing the 90' of 2-0 win in a friendly for Argentina against Bosnia.

We will be missing Rojo and Wilson Eduardo due to suspensions carried after the Cup circus at that tent. It is expected that Eric Dier and Carrillo will replace them in the starting XI.

No comments about the ref's nomination. They really are on a roll up there behind the curtains this season.

Leonardo Jardim called the following 19 players:

Goalkeepers: 1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders: 41 Cédric, 30 Iván Piris, 3 Maurício, 15 Eric Dier and 4 Jefferson.

Midfielders: 21 Rinaudo, 23 Adrien, 10 Gerson Magrão, 14 William Carvalho, 6 Vítor and 8 André Martins.

Forwards: 11 Diego Capel, 25 Diogo Salomão, 18 Carrillo, 36 Carlos Mané, 9 Slimani and 17 Fredy Montero.

First goal chance at 8' to Vitória with Maazou hitting the outside of the post.

First smart ass intervention by the ref, inventing a dangerous free kick against us and giving a yellow for a foul that didn't exist to William Carvalho

After a beautiful counter Carrillo loses a goal chance crossing instead of shooting. What a waste...

Sporting started slowly and too softly allowing Vitória to have more of the ball and to create a couple of chances in the first 15'. As long as the first half went through Sporting improved, balanced the game and ended up taking control of it.

Carrillo's speed and amazing technique is putting that left side of Guimarães defence in a permanent state of panic and if it wasn't for his bad decision making he could have opened the score already.

On the bad side Adrien is not having a good game, failing to take over the reins of our midfield as he usually likes to.

Guimarães is a tough side to beat but with a bit more composure in the last third I feel we can take the 3 points from this one.

Incredible offside call on Adrien...he was at least 2 metres on side.
