Taça de Portugal 2015/2016

3rd Round


Estádio António Coimbra da Mota, Estoril,
17.10.2015, 18:30 CET
Ref: Sérgio Piscarreta (AF Algarve)
2,832 att.


vs

Vilafranquense 0-4 SPORTING CP
(Matheus Pereira 12', 17', Bruno Paulista 40', Gelson Martins 75')


We start defending our Cup title against a 4th tier side in neutral ground, as they chose to play at Estoril in order to get more money.

JJ will rest most of the starters (Jefferson, Naldo, João Mário, Adrien, Gelson, Teo Gutiérrez and Slimani) and will field two players that have been regulars in our B side (Bruno Paulista - first match as a starter in the first team - and Matheus Pereira). Rui Patrício and Bryan Ruiz are injured and Ewerton and Paulo Oliveira are both back from injuries.

Here's the starting line-up:

22 Marcelo Boeck

21 João Pereira - 26 Paulo Oliveira - 5 Ewerton - 3 Jonathan Silva

14 William Carvalho

30 Bruno Paulista - 6 Aquilani

36 Carlos Mané - 10 Montero - 73 Matheus Pereira



Subs:
26 Azbe Jug, 47 Ricardo Esgaio, 55 Tobias Figueiredo, 28 André Martins, 27 Ryan Gauld, 60 Gelson Martins and 8 Tanaka.

Great chance for the 3rd with Aquilani's header going very close after a great counter led by Montero and Jonathan.

Bruno Paulista heads in from a corner and scores on his debut as a starter for the first team.

This corner came from a great save by Vilafranquense's keeper after Carlos Mané made a lob from...the midfield line. :eekani:

3-0 after 39'.

Vilafranquense 0-3 SPORTING at HT

A relaxed first half with those players less used by JJ taking the chance to impress. Very good first half by Matheus and Bruno Paulista, not just because they scored.

JJ makes the first sub during the break:

William OUT
Tanaka IN

It's the debut for the Japanese under JJ in an official match.

Gelson and Tanaka playing very well so far and the 4th goal seems getting close.

Great chance for Ewerton and also for Montero who is trying very hard to get his goal but the keeper has been brilliant.

Last sub at 72':

Bruno Paulista goes out with a knock and André Martins comes in for his place.

Nice second half and overall a very good start of our campaign in this season's Cup. Good to see players that usually have not been used by JJ taking advantage of this opportunity to show that we have plenty of quality alternatives to the regular starters. Matheus, Bruno Paulista and Tanaka all played well, as so did Aquilani, Montero and Gelson Martins. Great to see Paulo Oliveira and above all Ewerton back on the pitch.


Next stop Alvalade on Thursday against the Albanian champions of Skenderbeu for the EL.
