Primeira Liga 2015/2016

Jornada 1

Estádio Municipal de Aveiro,
14 August 2015, 21:30 CET
Ref: Carlos Xistra (AF Castelo Branco)






x

Tondela 1-2 SPORTING CP
(Luís Alberto 58'; João Mário 15', Adrien 90'+8' pen.)

************

This is surely one of the most awaited leagues ever by Sporting fans taking into account what happened since the end of the last season. A very good new coach, a very good set of new and experienced players, a winning attitude that we so much lacked in this club for so long. The expectations are really high but at Sporting it should always be like that.

We start this league playing with one of the newcomers and in this case also a club that makes their debut in the first level of our football. They are one of Benfica's satellites (3 red loanees and a coach heavily linked with SLB) but that's not the main reason why they will do their best to create a surprise. The game will be in Aveiro because Tondela's stadium is being renovated. Taking into account the amount of tickets sold so far it's expected a huge crowd which will surely be of about 75% of Sporting fans. It's the Green Wave that already started last weekend in the Algarve.

Hopefully nobody will get injured because we have one of the two most important matches of the season to be played on Tuesday: the first leg of the CL play-off against CSKA.


List of players called by Jorge Jesus:

Goalkeepers:
1 Rui Patrício and 22 Marcelo Boeck.

Defenders:
21 João Pereira, 47 Ricardo Esgaio, 15 Paulo Oliveira, 44 Naldo, 55 Tobias Figueiredo and 4 Jefferson.

Midfielders:
23 Adrien, 30 Bruno Paulista, 17 João Mário and 28 André Martins.

Forwards and Wingers:
18 Carrillo, 20 Bryan Ruiz, 36 Carlos Mané, 60 Gelson Martins, 9 Slimani, 19 Teo Gutiérrez and 10 Fredy Montero.




FORÇA SPORTING!!!

Another huge chance for us at 13' but Carrillo missed the tap in by a split second

Great attacking move by Sporting with Carrillo launching Teo whose cross was poorly dealt by Tondela's defence and JM didn't miss his volley. 1-0 at 15'

As expected total domination by Sporting in this first half showing a period of great football approximately between 5'-25'. During those 20 minutes we scored a goal and create enough chances to completely close the game showing some fantastic combinations mostly through the middle or on the left flank. Bryan Ruiz once again is showing his class in the last third with some great passing but also Teo is looking very good. The last 20' of this first half were played at a slower pace but I expect another strong start after the break so that we can put the game to sleep.

Tondela equalizes at 58' after a very dubious freekick. It's also not clear if the goal scorer handles the ball or not but what counts is that we coonceded a goal in the only chance allowed and we have 30' to win the game.

After watching the replay it's clear that the goal shouldn't have counted as there was a handball by the goal scorer.
