Liga Portuguesa 2013/2014

Round 4

Estádio do Algarve, 15.09.2013, 18:45 CET
Ref: Olegário Benquerença (AF Leiria)
15,158 att.



vs

Olhanense vs SPORTING CP

Many of Sporting's players were involved in the international break so it is always difficult to know if their form was affected. What doesn't seem to be affected is the wave of enthusiasm of the club's fans as never before Olhanense had so many people attending a home game in their history. More than 10,000 tickets have been sold at Estádio do Algarve and it's obvious that the team is not immune to this support.

If we keep the same level of the first three rounds I think we will have a comfortable win, provided that the clown that was appointed to ref this game will not be his usual self whenever he is in charge of one of our games.

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

Goalkeepers: Rui Patrício, Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders: Cédric, Welder, Maurício, Eric Dier, Rúben Semedo and Jefferson.

Midfielders: André Martins, Gérson Magrão, William Carvalho, Rinaudo, Adrien and Vítor.

Forwards: Diego Capel, Carrillo, Wilson Eduardo, Slimani and Fredy Montero.

Marcos Rojo is the only absent due to injury. Rúben Semedo replaces him on the call. Vítor is immediately called after joining the club.

Right before HT Maurício heads the ball back to Rui but Olhanense's striker intercepts it and creates danger. Fortunately Rui Patrício was very fast reacting and saved it.

0-0 at HT

An interesting first half with Sporting creating 3 or 4 good chances against a team that is playing better than I expected. Our left flank has been much more active than the right one because Capel is combining very well with Jefferson whereas Wilson is not having a game as good as in his last appearances. In the middle André Martins has been also a bit slow leaving Adrien with most of the offensive construction work. It would be nice to see Vítor coming in as I'm sure he is capable of having an immediate impact in our game.

Terrible refereeing by Olegário as expected.

Montero was marginally offside but the linesman didn't call it.

André Martins scores his first goal for the first team finishing with class after a good cross by Wilson Eduardo from the left. Both players came much better after the break. 2-0 at 61'

Terrible studs up tackle by Bigazzi on Capel from behind. A clear red that was transformed into a yellow.
