Paços de Ferreira 1-3 SPORTING CP
(Bruno Moreira 83'; Bruno César 40', Slimani 63', 84')


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

Here's a really tough match and an opportunity for some of the players to redeem themselves for the poor showing they had in the first half of the match against Tondela last weekend. We've dropped two points against Paços when we hosted them in Alvalade for the league but afterwards we also thoroughly beat them when he also hosted them on a League Cup match. Playing them at their pitch is however a different, and much harder, story.

JJ brings back all the players he rested in the League Cup which are in fact the most important ones.

Here's the list of players called for the game by JJ:

First great chance for us after a corner at 11' with Naldo's header and afterwards Bryan Ruiz going very close.

Quick throw in by Jefferson finding Slimani on the wing who kills the RB with some lovely foot work and assists Bruno César on a golden plate. 1-0 at 40'.

Very good first half by Sporting totally controlling the game on a very tough place to do it. No signs of nervousness or of any pseudo-crisis that only exists in the minds of those that would like to be in our place.

A very tight defence, something crucial against a tricky team like Paços, was the basis that allowed another brilliant display by Adrien, well aided by Bruno César and João Mário. Upfront Slimani is showing why he is the best forward playing in this league. Our lead came late but it is more than deserved.

Paços did not make one single shot so far.

Huge pressure by Sporting in this start of the second half. Once again Naldo goes very close with a header.

Fantastic long pass by João Mário which Slimani took in the best way and finished for the deserved two goal lead. 2-0 at 62'.

One more goal chance for us with Bryan Ruiz and Bruno César missing by an inch after another great cross by João Mário.

The first shot by Paços comes at the 71st minute...and goes way over the bar. Sporting had 16 so far.
