Ref: Fábio Veríssimo (AF Leiria)

SPORTING CP 1-0 Nacional
(Fredy Montero 86')


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

It's time to walk the talk and show that we are real about being a title contender. If we do our duty and beat Nacional we stay on top side by side with Porto and open a 4 points lead over Benfica.

Carrillo was not called once again and it seems more and more probable that he will not play again for the club. Not the time to discuss about it but from what I've read I think the club is acting as it should in this case. I can't wait for a clear decision to be taken just to finish this tasteless soap opera and leave the centre stage for football itself.


List of players called by Jorge Jesus:




FORÇA SPORTING!!!

Strange how a no-name ref was nominated.

2' played and there is already one doubtful penalty situation inside Nacional's box. Ruiz seemed fouled.

Superb pass by João Mário to Gelson who unfortunately slipped when he was preparing the bicicleta.

Great counter led by Slimani but Gelson's shot went just wide off the post.

At 32' Sequeira sees a second yellow and is sent off. Nothing to say as both yellows were blatant.

A fairly good first half from Sporting managing to create danger a few times but also losing too many chances in the last third. We had two penalty situations not called in our favour but as we've had 4 pens called for us in the 4 first rounds of this league I expect us to be paying for that for about 10 rounds. The fact that we've been playing with one more man during the last 13' of this first half was not really felt but it will surely take its toll on Nacional during the second period.

Gelson is looking good, definitely much more active and motivated to grab his place when compared with Carrillo when he arrived at the club. Teo and Bryan Ruiz on the other hand are slowing down our game and I wouldn't be surprised if one or both are subbed in the second half.

At 69' huge chance for Sporting with Mané's cross being met by Gelson but the keeper saved with his foot.

Great shot by Montero just a bit over the crossbar.
