Primeira Liga 2014/2015

Jornada 5

Estádio Cidade de Barcelos, 21.09.2014, 19:00 CET
Ref: Carlos Xistra (AF Castelo Branco)



vs

Gil Vicente 0-4 SPORTING CP
(Adrien 10', Nani 11', Slimani 69', Carrillo 84')

After the last minute ice bucket in Maribor there is a lot of people praying for Sporting to slip up again at Barcelos. If on one side that is perfectly normal if those people are fans of our two direct rivals, I find it hard to accept when that comes from supposed "fans" of our club. Some people have a really short memory.

Marco Silva will be forced to make at least one change from last week's line-up as Jefferson is suspended after that incredibly ridiculous sending off against Belenenses. The young Argentine Jonathan Silva will thus have the chance to make his debut for Sporting's first team. There is also some expectation on whether MS will keep the two CBs responsible for a very bad performance in Maribor and also if he will insist in keeping André Martins in the first XI, in spite of his below average showings in the last few matches. I think he will keep the CBs but I expect him to bring on João Mário to the midfield.

In any case it will be a tough match. Not because I think Gil Vicente is a good team, they aren't really, but because they have a coach that basis his football in rough tackling and parking the bus and also because the ref his one of the worst specimen we've had the unpleasure of seeing whistling in our pitches.

Marco Silva called the following 19 players:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders:
41 Cédric, 3 Maurício, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 29 Naby Sarr, 47 Ricardo Esgaio and 33 Jonathan Silva.

Midfielders:
23 Adrien, 14 William Carvalho, 8 André Martins, 24 Uri Rosell and 17 João Mário.

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

Starting XI:

1 Rui Patrício

41 Cédric - 3 Maurício - 29 Naby Sarr - 33 Jonathan Silva

14 William Carvalho

17 João Mário - 23 Adrien

77 Nani - 9 Slimani - 11 Diego Capel



Subs: 22 Marcelo Boeck, 26 Paulo Oliveira, 47 Ricardo Esgaio, 24 Uri Rosel, 18 Carrillo, 36 Carlos Mané and 10 Fredy Montero.​


As I've predicted Marco Silva didn't make any changes in the centre of our defence but he does bring on João Mário into the midfield. Slightly surprising to see Capel starting in the place of Carrillo upfront.

At 8' Gil Vicente's keeper Adriano spills the ball after a corner and Maurício scores. The ref sees a foul somewhere and says it's not a goal.

One minute after the first here's the second! Nani with a sweet one-two with Adrien lashing a trademark beauty to make it 2-0 after 11'.

Slimani alone with the keeper lets him save for a corner.

Sporting playing really well so far.

One more pathetic yellow card to William for a completely harmless foul.

I've just seen Sporting playing the best football so far this season in these first 45'. Beautiful passing upfront with Nani running the show closely followed by Adrien and João Mário. Very good debut by Jonathan Silva as LB as well and overall an excellent showing in a game that seemed full of potential traps. Gil Vicente is simply happy for not to having conceded more than two.

Slimani gets a yellow for asking the ref to book a defender. Today loads of players did the same before and were not booked.
