Primeira Liga 2014/2015

Jornada 11

Estádio José Alvalade, 29.11.2014, 21:15 CET
Ref: Artur Soares Dias (AF Porto)
34,009 att.



vs

SPORTING CP 3-0 Vitória de Setúbal
(Slimani 62', 90'+4', Montero 63')


After another long break in the league we're back in action trying to shorten the gap with the top.

Our opponents tonight are not having a very good season start and we're playing some good football so there is no reason not to be optimist.

Marco Silva said on the pre-match press conference that Sporting needs to be more consistent in the league or else we really will not be able to achieve our goals in it. He is right so now it's up to the team to do it.

The line-up should be announced soon.

Great to see that Marco Silva saw that this type of games need a different, more bold approach. Montero starting as a second striker behind Slimani. Should be good.

5' - Great combination on the right with Cédric's cross going straight to Slimani who couldn't hit the target.

What a superb trivela pass by Montero but Mané crossed poorly.

Montero hits the post and William's rebound is blocked on the goal line. Great pressure by Sporting.

Slimani scores but Maurício was offside when of the first shot that hit the crossbar

Great first half an hour from Sporting completely dominating Setúbal who seemed shell shocked with this unexpected tactical drawing. Unfortunately none of the plenty of goal chances went in. Setúbal was forced to make a tactical substitution bringing in one more DM to contain Montero and that made them defend better. Still, they have done nothing but waste time and this really seems like one of those games that will be solved when and if the first ball goes into the back of the net.

Wow!

In two minutes the bus is destroyed! :D

First at 61', one of the trade mark quality long crosses by Jefferson from the left is met by a smooth touch from Slimani.

At 62' Slimani steals the ball to Setúbal's defence. leaves it to Slimani who shoots a 35m lob right into the net.

2-0
