SPORTING CP 1-1 Paços de Ferreira
(Carrillo 41'; Pelé 80' pen.)

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

Sporting's league debut in Alvalade comes in the middle of the two crucial European matches that will define much of what will be our season. We're facing a team that we couldn't beat last year (two 1-1 draws) but this is a different Sporting, very different.

It's not clear if Jesus will make a few changes on the XI that has been playing since the start of the season but the core of it will play as this game is not to be overlooked.

List of players called by Jorge Jesus:




FORÇA SPORTING!!!

JJ makes two changes: Aquilani makes his debut as a starter coming in for the place of Adrien and Montero replaces his compatriot Teo behind Slimani.

Handball by a Pacos defender inside the box, the ref waves on.

Lovely long distance lob by Aquilani goes just over the bar.

Bad offside call on Slimani when he was going alone against the keeper.

Great chance for Bryan Ruiz but his close range shot was well blocked by a defender

Good attacking combination with João Mário finding Ruiz in the box who sent a killer cross to Carrillo and La Culebra finished with a slick low shot in the bottom corner. 1-0 at 41'

Slimani, who was offside, is pushed inside the box when he was trying to finish with a header. The ref books him for diving. :howler:

Not a very good first half by Sporting with the team clearly playing in a much lower rhythm than what was showed so far in this start of the season. It's obvious that the fact that this game is coming in between the two legs of the crucial CL play-off has to be in the minds of the players. Also Aquilani presses less than Adrien in that crucial number 6 position and also Montero is giving less trouble to the opposing defenders than what Teo is showing in this beginning of the season.

Paços defended well but now that they are behind we'll see if they had any other game plan than keeping the 0-0.

Sporting didn't create that many goal chances but we've been very efficient.

João Mário and Carrillo seemed to me our two best players in this first period.

At 58' huge chance for Paços but Patrício is HUGE. In the counter there was one more very dubious offside call going against us.

Great work by Gelson finished with a dangerous cross but Ruiz' header was over the crossbar.

1-1 at 80' from the spot. The ref saw what he didn't see in the first half: a defender pushing a striker inside the box. João Pereira was sent off.
