UEFA FUTSAL CUP 2011

Elite Round - Group C


Sporting today starts our participation in one more Elite Round of the top European club competition in Futsal. We are hosting Group C where we will face the likes of Iberia Star Tbilisi (GEO), City'US Târgu Mureş (ROM) and Győri ETO FC (HUN).

The winner of this group will qualify to the Final Four where Sporting was last season and achieved a runner-up spot after losing the final against the Italians of Montesilvano.

Unfortunately this season, on the contrary to last year, Sporting will be the only Portuguese club present in this competition as Benfica did not manage to qualify for European cups this year.

All the matches will be played at the Pavilhão Multiusos de Odivelas and they will all be broadcasted live by the Portuguese state tv which means there will be live streams available.

Good start for Sporting...

O Sporting entrou a vencer na Ronda de Elite da UEFA Futsal Cup, batendo o City Us Tirgu Mures, por 5-3, no Multiusos de Odivelas.

Os «leões» entraram de rompante no jogo, imprimindo grande velocidade na circulação de bola, e adiantaram-se no marcador por Déo, logo no minuto inicial, que acorreu a um canto de Cary. Aos três minutos, João Matos concluiu da melhor maneira um contra-ataque e fez o 2-0, dando a ideia que a tarefa «leonina» estaria facilitada. No entanto, os romenos demonstraram ser uma formação muito organizada e temível no contra-golpe e responderam com um golo de Ignat. O que é facto é que, por momentos, o Sporting desconcentrou-se. Déo falhou um golo feito, quando tinha Cary em melhor situação para finalizar, e Benedito teve de se aplicar na baliza, negando o empate, mas os campeões nacionais viriam a tomar novamente as "rédeas" do jogo. Ainda antes do intervalo, João Matos bisou e Cary fez o 4-1, serenando assim a equipa de Orlando Duarte.

Na segunda parte, os romenos entraram a utilizar o 5x4 (guarda-redes avançado) e com resultados práticos. Ignat bisou na partida, obrigando o Sporting a ser muito mais paciente quando não tinha a posse de bola. Aos 27 minutos, o Tirgu Mures reduziu para a diferença mínima (4-3, por Radu), reentrando na discussão do resultado. Contudo, o Sporting manteve-se muito concentrado e, a dois minutos do fim, Leitão acabou com todas as dúvidas, fazendo o 5-3, após tabela com Marcelinho.

Os «leões» voltam a jogar esta quinta-feira, pelas 20h30, frente aos húngaros do Gyori Eto FC.

Second win in two matches which leaves us with one foot in the Final Four...

O Sporting somou a segunda vitória consecutiva na Ronda de Elite, ao derrotar o Györi Eto Fc (3-1), ficando a um ponto do apuramento para a fase final da UEFA Futsal Cup. Sábado (17h) joga com o Iberia Star Tiblissi.

As duas equipas vencedoras da primeira jornada encontraram-se no dia seguinte, com o Sporting a procurar o golo desde o instante inicial, com Leitão (3 m), Alex (4 m) e Marcelinho (5 e 6 m) a estarem perto de marcar, intercalados por duas boas ocasiões da equipa magiar. O Sporting inaugurou o marcador aos sete minutos, quando Marcelinho, junto ao segundo poste, colocou dentro da baliza a bola que lhe apareceu à frente após o seu remate anterior. E nem foi preciso esperar dois minutos para Deo dobrar a vantagem, ao ser o mais rápido a aparecer a uma bola perdida à frente da área, após o passe interceptado de Leitão para Cary. Tudo corria bem à equipa de Orlando Duarte e, três minutos depois, a bola encontra o corpo de Cary, num alívio da defensiva húngara, para o terceiro golo «leonino».

Sem conseguir ter a bola no ataque, o Eto FC colocou, a sete minutos do intervalo, Al Ioani como guarda-redes avançado, o que resfriou o domínio atacante «verde e branco», transformado em controlo e concentração defensiva, não sofrendo o resultado mais alterações até ao intervalo.

O Sporting voltou dos balneários «a todo o gás», com remates de João Matos, Pedro Cary e de Leitão, mas foi a equipa húngara a reduzir a desvantagem, por Al Ioani (22 m). Os «leões» não acusaram o golo e continuaram a controlar o ritmo do encontro, e a posse de bola, com Caio, (27 m), a rematar ao poste, no culminar de vários lances de perigo em que o guarda-redes Balazs foi adiando o quarto golo «verde e branco». Pedro Cary (31 m) rematou à barra, já sem o guarda-redes na baliza, com os húngaros a limitarem-se apenas a defender e, tal como na primeira parte, recorreram ao guarda-redes avançado para os derradeiros 8 minutos da partida.

O Sporting defendeu, novamente, com acerto, sem nunca deixar de procurar os ataques rápidos, passando apenas por um calafrio, no penúltimo minuto, com um remate à trave da baliza de Benedito.

Com este triunfo, o Sporting parte para a última jornada desta Ronda de Elite na primeira posição, necessitando apenas de um empate frente ao Iberia Star Tiblissi para carimbar a passagem à Final Four da UEFA Futsal Cup.

News of all the 4 Elite Round Groups...

Sporting march on as Montesilvano stutter
Thursday 17 November 2011, uefa.com

Sporting Clube de Portugal are on the verge of consecutive finals appearances after beating Győri ETO FC but holders ASD Città di Montesilvano C/5 started their elite round campaign with a draw.


http://www.uefa.com/futsalcup/news/newsid=1717206.html

Sporting Clube de Portugal moved to the brink of the UEFA Futsal Cup finals by beating Győri ETO FC but holders ASD Città di Montesilvano C/5 started their elite round campaign with a draw.

Sporting and Győr won their Group C openers on Wednesday and the hosts' 3-1 victory in tonight's meeting leaves them requiring a draw against Iberia Star Tbilisi on Sunday to return to the finals. Last year's runners-up did the damage in the opening 12 minutes thanks to goals from Marcelino, Déo and Pedro Cary. Iberia Star kept their qualification hopes alive with a 7-3 success against City'US Târgu Mureş.

The three other sections also got under way, and holders ASD Città di Montesilvano C/5 could only draw 1-1 against debutants Uragan Ivano-Frankovsk in their Group D encounter. Petro Shoturma's effort was cancelled out by Fabricio Calderolli before Valentyn Tsvelykh's last-minute penalty was saved to deny the Ukrainian side a famous upset. Serie A1 champions Marca Futsal, who are hosting the group in Padova, top the section as two Jonas Pinto strikes pushed them past Slov-Matic Bratislava 3-1. The two Italian sides meet tomorrow.

The 2007 winners MFK Dinamo Moskva made a superb start to Group A as hosts, beating Serbian outfit KMF Ekonomac Kragujevac 9-1. Dinamo only led 2-1 at the break but by the end all but one of their ten outfield players had scored. Kairat Almaty, who finished third in the finals on home territory last year, beat Belgium's Châtelineau 3-2 in their opener with goals either side of half-time by Alexandre Moraes proving decisive. Châtelineau take on Dinamo tomorrow while Kairat meet Ekonomac.

In Group B, FC Barcelona continued to flourish in their debut European season as they dispatched FK EP Chrudim 6-0. Integral to the hosts' ascent was a hat-trick from Javi Rodríguez, despite an injury to Fernandao in the warm-up. Top seeds Araz Naxçivan, who were third in 2010, edged preliminary round survivors Club Futsal Eindhoven 5-3 with their triumph only confirmed in the dying seconds by Tota's second goal. The home side take on Eindhoven next while Araz face Chrudim.

WE DID IT! :yess:

We went for the last match of this Elite Round only needing a draw against the Brazilian packed Iberia Star Tbilisi of Georgia in order to qualify for the Final 4 of the Champions League equivalent of Futsal.

Things looked very dark as we were losing 0-3 at half time and 1-4 with 15' to go but a superb comeback in the 2nd half gave us one point which was enough to win the group and once again put Portuguese Futsal as one of the top 4 in Europe. :proud:

Sporting na Final Four
in www.sporting.pt

Foram mais de 2000 sportinguistas que sofreram até ao último segundo para festejar a passagem do Sporting à final four da UEFA Futsal Cup. O Sporting entrou muito concentrado no encontro, consciente das responsabilidades, mas acabou por ser surpreendido ao minuto seis, por Bruno Melo que inaugurou o marcador. Luiz Negão aumentou, logo de seguida, aos 8 minutos, dando uma maior vantagem ao Tbilisi (2-0). Marcelinho tentou responder de imediato mas a bola não passou pelo guarda-redes Akopov. O jogo não corria de feição para os «leões» e, por infelicidade, ao tentar cortar um lace perigoso de Roninho, João Matos acabou por colocar a bola na sua própria baliza. Como Iberia Tbilisi a vencer por 3-0, o cenário começava a ficar cada vez mais «escuro» para os sportinguistas. E se as coisas já não estavam a correr bem, pior ficaram quando Alex, aos 16 minutos, rematou ao poste. A bola não queria entrar. A segundos do final da primeira parte, ainda se gritou golo, mas tudo não passou de ilusão óptica, uma vez que a bola passou ao lado da baliza georgiana. Os minutos finais foram, aliás, de verdadeiro inferno para os rapazes do Iberia, mas o Sporting, apesar das investidas, continuava com muitas dificuldades em transpor a defensiva adversária. A diferença ao intervalo era de 3-0, para o Iberia Tbilisi.

No segundo tempo o Sporting entrou bem, com Marcelinho a marcar logo no primeiro minuto. Como na primeira parte, voltou a verificar-se um Sporting muito rematador, mas algo nervoso no momento da finalização. O que até se percebia, uma vez que se não vencesse o jogo não poderia realizar o seu sonho de continuar em frente na prova. O público, imparável, não parava de apoiar os seus «leões», alto e bom som, para que estes se animassem rumo à vitória. Mas a sorte do Tbilisi era por demais. Bolas no poste da sua baliza, à figura, ao lado, e nada as fazia entrar. Ao contrário, o Tbilisi aproveitava melhor as suas oportunidades e, à passagem do minuto 26, Luiz Negão marcou o quarto golo dos georgianos (4-1).

Já com o guarda-redes avançado, o Sporting conseguiu apontar o seu segundo golo da partida, aos 28 minutos, através de Deo. Era o tudo por tudo dos «leões» e Alex, vestido de guarda-redes fez o terceiro, aos 29 minutos. As coisas começavam, finalmente e merecidamente, a correr melhor para os «pupilos» de Orlando Duarte e Deo, aos 31 minutos, igualou a partida (4-4).

João Benedito, aos 32 minutos, com uma defesa espectacular impediu que os georgianos voltassem a ficar na frente no marcador. Aos 37 minutos, O Tbilisi voltou a marcar, por Daniel Sakai que conseguiu roubar a bola a João Matos e surpreender Benedito. Aos 39 minutos, Alex, novamente na condição de guarda-redes avançado realizou uma grande defesa e logo partiu para o ataque, passando por tudo e por todos, deixando depois para Leitão marcar, a um minuto do fim do jogo. A partir daí foi gerir o resultado porque o empate bastava para seguir em frente na prova.

Sporting Clube de Portugal reached their second straight UEFA Futsal Cup finals, but the Group C hosts had to work hard to earn a 5-5 draw against Iberia Star Tbilisi in their final game.

in uefa.com, 19.11.2011

Sporting Clube de Portugal are through to their second straight UEFA Futsal Cup finals after making sure of first place as elite round Group C hosts with a dramatic 5-5 draw against Iberia Star Tbilisi.

City'US Târgu Mureş' 8-3 win against Győri ETO FC in the early game eased Sporting's nerves, as it meant neither of those sides could deny them top spot, but the tension was soon skyrocketing at the Pavilhão Multiusos Odivelas, with Georgian contenders Iberia taking a 3-0 half-time lead through strikes from Bruno Melo and Luiz Baptista followed by a João Matos own goal.

Normal service was resumed after the break, though. Marcelinho scored within 42 seconds of the restart, and while Luiz Baptista replied for Iberia, Déo struck twice either side of an Alex effort to make it 4-4. Daniel Sakai restored Iberia's advantage with four minutes to go, but Leitão made it 5-5 to ensure that the group was settled without recourse to goal difference.

"We felt that we deserved to progress as we were the better team," said Sporting coach Orlando Duarte. "Iberia tried to defend their lead, but we would have won the match by a good distance had we not made so many mistakes in attack. I have to salute the teams who played here and also this fantastic crowd; they were wonderful."

Earlier, a skilful Târgu Mureş forged a 3-0 half-time lead against Győr, and while the Hungarian side reduced the arrears to 3-2 after the break, they wilted in the closing stages, Csoma Alpar their tormentor-in-chief with three goals. The Romanian side might have feared the worst when Murilo Filho was sent off on 29 minutes, but Győr captain Ioan Al-Ioani was dismissed three minutes later.

In the finals in late April, to be hosted by one of the four contenders, Sporting will meet three sides to be decided when the remaining groups conclude on Sunday.

Sporting won today its 11th Portuguese league title in Futsal after beating Benfica 3-1 at Pavilhão da Luz and making it 3-1 in the final. Last weekend we won the first game at home in Odivelas 5-1 and lost on penalties the second game also in Odivelas. This weekend we won 4-2 on Sayurday and 3-1 today at our old rivals home and finished with a golden touch an absolutely fantastic season.



In the regular stage we finished with a record breaking tally of 75 points, with an unbelievable record of 25 wins out of 26 matches and a goal register of 147-36. We went on steam rolling through the knock out stage beating Modicus in the Quarters 6-2 and 8-0, Fundão in the Semis 6-1 and 6-2 and finishing off Benfica without even losing a game on regular time.



Adding the Portuguese Cup to this brilliant campaign made of 2012/13 an absolutely historical season.

O CAMPEÃO VOLTOU!!!!

After the almost perfect season of 2012/13 we've started the 2013/14 in the same way: winning trophies.

Last weekend we won the first edition of Taça de Honra da AF Lisboa (Lisbon FA Cup) beating Benfica in the final 3-2.

Today in Coimbra we won our 5th Super Cup after beating Braga 4-1. We won both the League and the Cup last season but Braga got the right to play the Super Cup as Cup finalists.

A promising start for what will hopefully once again be a great season.

Sporting hope for home comforts
in uefa.com
http://www.uefa.com/futsalcup/news/newsid=2023342.html
Sporting Clube de Portugal have never failed to win an elite round section at home, but Győri ETO FC, 2010 bronze-medallists Araz Naxçivan and CF Eindhoven have other ideas in Group D.

---

Sporting Clube de Portugal (POR, hosts)
Sporting have hosted three previous elite round mini-tournaments or equivalent, and each time reached the finals: in 2002, 2011 (when they ended runners-up) and 2012. They hope to repeat that in Almada, on the outskirts of Lisbon, having beaten SL Benfica to the title and Lisbon Taça de Honra last season under new coach Nuno Dias. However, Benfica did get their revenge last week with an 8-7 league win, Sporting's first loss this season.

The squad remains familiar, with goalkeepers João Benedito and Cristiano, physical defenders João Matos, Pedro Cary, Paulinho and Djô, and Brazilian attackers Deo, Marcelinho, Divanei and Alex (a 2005 winner with Action 21 Charleoi), though Leitão did leave in the summer. "The great effort was to keep the players in the squad," said 40-year-old Dias. "Our responsibility remains the same: winning. We have a lot of things to win; the UEFA Futsal Cup will not have special treatment."

Main round: Bye
Key players: Alex, João Benedito, Divanei, Deo, João Matos

Győri ETO FC (HUN)
Győr are in this round for the third time in succession and hope to make it a step further, flying high at home with nine perfect wins. Coach David Madrid has a full-strength squad and said: "The luck was with us that we weren't drawn against the two most recent winners of the competition, Kairat Almaty and FC Barcelona, or the two-time runners-up, MFK Dinamo. But with this I do not want to say this group will be easy, for we will play against one of the tournament favourites in hosts Sporting Clube de Portugal. I would like to take all my players to Portugal in good condition and therefore there is still some work ahead of us."

Main round: KMF Tango Sarajevo 4-2, FC Grand Pro Varna 5-0, Iberia Star Tbilisi 3-1 (Group 2 winners)
Key players: Alvarito, Fábio Aguiar, Zoltán Dróth

Araz Naxçivan (AZE)
Araz Naxçivan are looking to repeat their achievement of 2010, when they made it to the finals and finished third, with the club celebrating their tenth anniversary in a few months. The squad has changed much in the intervening period, the likes of Rizvan Farzaliyev, Namig Mammadkarimov, Rajab Farajzade and Jadder Dantas departing, though all-time top scorer Vitaliy Borisov is still there. Defender Elnur Gambarov told UEFA.com: "We have been training hard twice a day, each of the sessions last two hours. We want to hear Europe once more speaking about Azerbaijani futsal."

Main round: Athina '90 5-1, Châtelineau Futsal 3-1, City'US Târgu Mureş 3-3 (Group 6 winners)
Key players: Vitaliy Borisov, Biro Jade, Felipe

CF Eindhoven (NED)
After reaching the elite round for the first time in 2011/12, Eindhoven are back again, having set a record with their fourth straight Dutch title last season. However, they are only second in the league after last week's 9-4 loss to JCK-Aiso and have been hit by injuries to key men like goalkeeper Pieter Grimmelius and playmaker Oualid Saadouni, who are both doubts for Lisbon. However, general director Anil Badloe said: "Being among the best 16 in Europe is an even better performance than winning the Dutch championship."

Main round: Vegakameratene 3-0, MNK Nacional Zagreb 5-4, KMF Ekonomac Kragujevac 1-6 (Group 5 runners-up)
Key players: Jamal El Ghannouti, Oualid Saadouni, Iliass El Attabi, Karim Bali

Sporting keeps imposing our quality over our opponents in this Elite Round. Tonight we crushed the Dutch champions of CF Eindhoven 6-1 and now on Sunday a draw with the toughest of the three opponents, Araz from Azerbaijan, will be enough to access the Final Four.

Sporting ended up failing the access to the Final Four after a very balanced game against the Brazilians (yes, they are practically all from Brazil) of Araz. The main reason for our loss was the incredible amount of goal chances that we've missed. Araz on the other hand were clinical in their finish and scored their two last goals when we were already using the 5 vs 4 as a last attempt to clinch the draw. Too bad but it was worth the effort as well as very nice to the Almada sports hall packed of sportinguistas.

Sporting today won the 2013/14 Portuguese Futsal Championship after beating Fundão in the 4th match of the final. Last weekend we won the first two matches of the final at home (3-0 and 4-2), yesterday in Fundão we lost the 3rd match after penalties and today secured the title with a 4-3 win after extra time.

A more than deserved title which is our 4th in the last 5 seasons in the second most popular sport in Portugal. This is the 12th title of Sporting, the double of the second on the list of winners, Benfica.

Fundão were the big surprise of the season, winning the Cup (beating Benfica in the final) and reaching the final for the first time also after beating the reds in the semi final.

Fantastic performance by our Futsal team managing to beat in Group A of the Elite Round the Spanish champions, and favourites Inter FS, the team that won UEFA Futsal Cup more times, and qualify for the 4th time in our history to the Final Four of the most important club competition of European Futsal. Sporting made an almost perfect match against this very strong opponents and won 1-0 with a goal scored by Diogo only 6 minutes from time in front of a completely packed sports hall in Odivelas.

Incredible futsal match that I've just watched in the semi final of the 2014/15 UEFA's Futsal Cup between Sporting and FC Barcelona. The final four of this competition started being played today in Lisbon and although Sporting lost 3-5 it's impossible not to be proud of what he did today. Not only we forced the current European champions to play at their highest level in order to beat us but our fans created an incredible atmosphere inside of Lisbon's Pavilhão do Atlântico, the largest indoor multipurpose hall in the country. We actually beat UEFA Futsal Cup's attendance record with 12,076 mad sportinguistas rooting for the Lions.

This tournament didn't come at the best time for us as the team is not going through its best period of form but still we forced Barca to the limits. We opened the score in the first half but Barcelona equalized before the break. During the first half we lost our talismanic captain and goalkeeper with what seems to be a serious injury and that obviously didn't help making things easier. In the second half the Catalans reached 3-1 but a strong reaction from Sporting saw us equalize with less than 4 minutes to play. Barcelona ended up scoring their 4th goal 30 seconds before the end of the match and made the 5th virtually in the last second of the game moments after Sporting was on the verge of reaching the equalizer. A dramatic finish of a great game and another proof of Sporting's vitality.

Sporting crushed the Russians of Dina Moskva 8-3 and finished in Third place in the UEFA Futsal Cup, the CL of Futsal. Here's the match report.

Rampant Sporting take bronze against Dina
ISK Dina Moskva 3-8 Sporting Clube de Portugal
Alex's four goals were the highlight as the home side delighted their fans by claiming bronze.

• Sporting claim bronze in front of more than 8,500 fans at Meo Arena
• Esquerdinha scores first for Dina, but Alex strikes twice to put Sporting 2-1 up at break
• João Matos gets third, set up by keeper Cristiano, both 'deputising' for João Benedito
• Sporting pull away, Alex getting two more and Cristiano also striking

Finals hosts Sporting Clube de Portugal ended the 2014/15 UEFA Futsal Cup with bronze after comfortably defeating competition debutants ISK Dina Moskva.

Both teams were without their captains, Dina's Dmitri Prudnikov having played through ankle pain in their 7-4 extra-time semi-final loss to Kairat Almaty and Sporting goalkeeper João Benedito rupturing an Achilles tendon as they were defeated 5-3 by FC Barcelona. The Sporting fans who roared on the hosts that day were back again – the crowd numbering more than 8,500 – and their heroes had the first chance when a Fábio Lima flick was blocked by Igor Trushkin, taking over from Sergei Zuev in the Dina goal.

The deadlock was broken by Dina, Esquerdinha playing a nice one-two with Serhiy Sytin before beating Cristiano. But, late in the first half, Alex scored twice in 44 seconds, first smashing in a shot following Caio's pass and then turning in Fábio Lima's cross.

João Matos, wearing the Sporting armband in Benedito's absence, got the third on the rebound after home goalkeeper Cristiano advanced and Trushkin could only parry his shot. Cristiano had another assist when his punt was met by a weak defensive header and Marcelinho made it 4-1 on the turn. Sporting were rampant and Alex's third arrived with a smart angled shot following a quick counter before he set up Diogo for the sixth with a quick one-two.

Flying keeper Esquerdinha did pull one back for Dina with a deflected shot but Cristiano punted in a seventh and ran to Benedito to celebrate. Yan Kuzenok got in on the act to reduce arrears again, only for Alex to shoot in from his own half.

After winning the regular stage with a record of 73 points, after winning Taça de Honra, Taça da Liga and Taça de Portugal, Sporting won today the 2015/16 Portuguese Futsal League.

In the final Sporting faced Benfica and won the first game in Odivelas 3-0 and lost the second game also in Odivelas 1-2. The 3rd match of the final played two days ago at Pavilhão da Luz was won 2-1 by Sporting and today again at Luz we once again won 2-1 and conquered our 13th title in the 26 years of history of the second most popular type of sports in Portugal.

A superb season with absolutely impressive numbers: 46 games, 42 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses and 221-50 in goals.
