Liga Portuguesa 2013/2014

Round 24

Estádio dos Barreiros, Funchal, 22.03.2014, 20:00 CET
Ref: Jorge Sousa (AF Porto)



vs

Marítimo 1-3 SPORTING CP

Our visit to the home island of our coach has been already marked by an enthusiastic welcoming by a big bunch of lions from Madeira and also by a visit of the entire squad to CR7's museum.

The other big news in this pre-match period is the fact that LJ called for the first time for the A team the Egyptian wizzard Shikabala. It would be very surprising if he would start but maybe he will play some minutes in the second half.

Marítimo is always one of the toughest teams to play against, mainly in Madeira, where both Benfica and Porto already lost this season, so this one will not be easy. Hopefully we'll show the same grit of the biggest part of the away matches we've played so far this season and take the much needed 3 points back to Lisbon.

Here's the list of 19 called by Leonardo Jardim:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders:
41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 15 Eric Dier, 4 Jefferson and 5 Marcos Rojo.

Midfielders:
23 Adrien, 14 William Carvalho, 6 Vítor, 10 Gérson Magrão, 11 Diego Capel and 18 Carrillo.

Forwards:
7 Shikabala, 28 Wilson Eduardo, 9 Slimani, 17 Fredy Montero, 20 Héldon and 36 Carlos Mané.

Here's our starting XI:

1 Rui Patrício
41 Cédric - 3 Maurício - 5 Marcos Rojo - 4 Jefferson
14 William Carvalho
36 Carlos Mané - 23 Adrien
11 Diego Capel - 9 Slimani - 20 Heldon


Subs: 22 Marcelo Boeck, 15 Eric Dier, 6 Vítor, 10 Gerson Magrão, 18 Carrillo, 28 Wilson Eduardo and 17 Fredy Montero.​


With André Martins injured LJ brings in Carlos Mané to replace him making no mistake about what are Sporting's intentions from kick-off.

Carlos Mané is barged inside the box by a clumsy CB and Adrien, as usual, doesn't miss from the spot. 1-0 after only 3'.

1-1 by Weeks at 6' after a well drafted counter. What a start for this game.

A dangerous free kick on Adrien very close to Marítimo's box not given by Jorge Sousa.

After a corner the ball comes bouncing in front of the box and William smashes a volley in. Sporting up 2-1 deservedly at 38'.

A very intense first half, as expected between these two. Sporting started very strong forcing Marítimo to commit a pen after only 90 seconds but Marítimo reacted almost instantly through one of their lethal counters. Sporting didn't shake and Marítimo didn't create any more danger after that. We kept pressing well, playing fast, mostly thanks to the intense hard work on the left flank of Capel and Jefferson and also by Mané on the right. The second goal was a logical result of our best football during this first half. Good game so far. :thumbsup:

Great attacking combination right at the start of the second half but Heldon's shot went wide.

Heldon gets another shot but this time it went straight to the keeper.

Slimani goes alone on goal but Salin saved with his left foot. Great chance.

What a raid by our great LB taking the ball for 50 metres and finishing between the legs of the keeper. 3-1 at 85'.

We score again by Slimani but the ref says Montero made a foul in the assist. Very doubtful.

Last sub at 87':

Vítor IN for Slimani
