Moreirense 0-1 SPORTING CP
(Slimani 16')


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

Here we go to another decisive game in this last stretch of the season. We're visiting Moreirense who are not completely out of the relegation battle but who were last week just seconds away from winning at Braga. They will be without two of their best players, not because they were clinically booked to miss the game against us, as it has recurrently happening in the games played by our direct rivals to the title, but because they are both loaned by...Sporting. João Palhinha and above all Iuri Medeiros are having a fantastic season and JJ this week already confirmed that he is counting on them for next season.

For this game we have Adrien back which is great news.

Here is the list of players JJ picked for this match:

Great goal by Sporting! Teo lobs the ball over the defence, Schelotto crosses and Slimani taps in.

1-0 at 17'.


PS: On the replay we can see that Slimani was offside. Scandalous.

Great chance for Sporting with Teo missing by very little.

Teo scores but the goal is disallowed for offside. Difficult to see if it's correct on the replay.

Good first half by Sporting doing enough to justify this lead. We dominated the midfield thanks to another solid performance by Adrien and João Mário and created danger upfront mostly thanks to the a very good showing by Teo Gutiérrez.

Moreirense reacted after our goal but their only danger came from set pieces, most of them given by fouls that only Bruno Paixão saw.

More of the same in the second half please.

JJ makes the first sub at 63':

Bruno César IN for Marvin

Well done as Paixão was eager to give him the 2nd yellow.

JJ is sent off from the bench for feck all. Paixão at its best.

Hard fought second half with very few dangerous chances created but we were solid at the back and even with a narrow one goal lead, victory never seemed to be in danger. Sometimes it's not possible to play pretty and today we did it more with grit and balls than with flair.

Adrien, João Mário and Teo were our best tonight.

Our only goal was scored offside but after that we scored another one that seemed legal and had a handful of very dubious offsides and free kicks called against us.

One more step towards our goal in this record breaking season.

I agree that your rivals (Braga, Guimarães, etc) might pull some stunts, meanwhile you get another 3 points from a player that was offside.

Good thing you're so unbiased kkkkkkk
Anyway, I think it's good to have your circus in the league to keep us laughing.

Curious to see how your board will pressure the next ref...
