Primeira Liga 2014/2015

Jornada 27

Estádio Capital do Móvel, Paços de Ferreira, 04.04.2015, 21:15 CET
Ref: Cosme Machado (AF Braga)




vs

Paços de Ferreira 1-1 SPORTING CP
(Rodrigo Gallo 75'; Slimani 30')


The league is back with Sporting visiting the always difficult ground of Paços, where this season Benfica lost and where usually all sides except Porto (I wonder why?) have trouble to bring the 3 points from.

We usually do not perform at our best after an international break, because on the contrary to others, our squad is full of international players that are called and actually play for their NTs.

Added to this we will miss two regular starters both through suspensions: the boss of our central defence Paulo Oliveira, whom will be replaced by Tobias Figueiredo, and Adrien who will see probably André Martins playing in his position.

Here's the list of 19 players called by Marco Silva for this match:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck;

Defenders:
41 Cédric, 13 Miguel Lopes, 55 Tobias Figueiredo, 5 Ewerton, 29 Naby Sarr and 4 Jefferson;

Midfielders:
25 Uri Rosell, 14 William Carvalho, 17 João Mário and 8 André Martins;

Forwards and Wingers:
11 Diego Capel, 18 Carrillo, 36 Carlos Mané, 77 Nani, 10 Fredy Montero, 19 Tanaka and 9 Slimani.

Less than 2' played and Slimani already has one badly called offside on him.

Double chance for Sporting at 14' with João Mário's great shot being well saved by the keeper.

A PF defender handles the ball inside the area but it looks unintentional.

Huge chance for Tobias with a free header after a dangerous free kick but his shot went wide.

The usual circus with the ref's booking criteria in our matches

A perfect counter attack goal: Nani steals the ball in our midfield, João Mário launches Nani who goes to the line, crosses and Slimani taps in. Simple and nice. 1-0 at 30'.

This time Slimani offers the goal to Nani but there was a defender's body in the way. Sporting on top.

Very nice first half from Sporting controlling the game, creating several goal chances and overall looking very comfortable and confident. Paços had a lot of the ball but was unable to create one single dangerous situation.

Excellent Carrillo and a good Nani.

Incredible miss by João Mário who alone with the keeper send the ball just wide. What a sitter at 60'.

One minute later Carrillo forces the keeper to a great save.

At 74' once again João Mário has a good chance and wastes it.

Pacos equalizes at 75' in what was their first shot on goal. Sporting was inviting them to this and here it is.
