Primeira Liga 2014/2015

Jornada 30

Estádio Comendador Joaquim de Almeida Freitas, Moreira de Cónegos,
27.04.2015, 21:00 CET
Ref: Vasco Santos (AF Porto)




vs

Moreirense 1-4 SPORTING CP
(Leandro Souza 44'; Carlos Mané 2', Fredy Montero 34', 85', Tanaka 36')


After a great weekend for Sporting in other sports (winning the CERS Cup in Roller Hockey and finishing in 3rd place in the UEFA Futsal Cup) this game comes like a dessert.

I'd be very surprised if we finish in a different position from the one where we currently are on the table but the final 5 matches of the league are there to be won.

Slimani is injured and Tobias is supended but on the other hand Diego Rubio was called for the first time since he returned to Portugal in January.

Here's the starting XI with quite a few changes from what is usual:


1 Rui Patrício

41 Cédric - 26 Paulo Oliveira - 4 Ewerton - 5 Jefferson

14 William Carvalho

36 Carlos Mané - 8 André Martins - 77 Nani

10 Fredy Montero - 19 Tanaka

2 minutes played and we are in front. Montero in the box finds Mané who only needs to tap in.

Nani finds Montero in the box and he makes his second assist of the game finding Tanaka in a good position. 3-0 after 36 minutes.

William makes a completely harmless foul and sees a yellow which will make him miss the next game.

Moreirense scores at 44' through Leandro after a weak attempt to take the ball away from our box by William.

Sporting on 4x4x2 puzzled Moreirense's plan so much that with less than 2 minutes played we were already in front. As it's been usual this season we seemed to fall asleep when ahead on the score early in the game but in spite of that Moreirense never managed to create real danger. After half an hour we seemed to wake up and in two quick and well created attacking moves we scored twice. Moreirense ended up grabbing a lifeline one minute before the break through a silly goal.

Montero with one goal and two assists was his good self when playing with someone else upfront. Shame that Marco Silva doesn't use this tactical set up that much.

Tanaka should receive a call-up for Japan's next International matches, seems to have a good goal scorers instinct.
He is the player in our league that needs less minutes to score a goal. Like Montero, he seems much more comfortable when playing with someone else at his side upfront and not alone in the box.

Superb work by Montero inside the box but Nani's header was too weak.

Great counter attack led by William but Montero's shot went wide.
