huck


I really haven't a clue what will happen. If Saturday's team turns up we're in trouble, if Wednesdays team turns up we'll win, easily.

As said before, taking a clean sheet to Lisbon is important.
1-0 would be good, but a second obviously better.

Don't underestimate them.
They have a habit of scoring in injury time, and when you least expect it!

They have lost their last 2 games, away at Braga (who are 2nd with a game in hand) and at home to Academica (11th in the league and until that game without an away win all season).

Looks like were catching them at the right time.

2-0 Saha x2

I can see us scoring more than two.  Just have to keep it tight at the back.  3-0 to us.

Again. Don't Start Predcting a win in this match. Its a big one. Last time out against chelsea the less people giving predictions seemed to do us good.

In all honesty we'll probably do what we always do in double leggers. Come out slowly, lose the match and have it all to do in the second leg...
Oh well, at least Baines is still ace.

I hope not! What we really need is to win at Goodison and then when their heaping the pressure on us in Portugal we can use The Don's pace to hit them on the break.

Landycakes could be one of the big differences this time round. We've always been exposed on the right in Europe, I think, but he's a talent.

They're playing tonight (friday). I had hoped they'd have been playing on the Saturday or even Sunday, as no doubt we'd have been forced to if we'd been in the 5th round.

Anyway, this was their matchday squad:

SPORTING - Rui Patrício; Abel, Tonel, Carriço e Grimi; Adrien, Pedro Mendes e João Moutinho; Pongolle; Liedson e Saleiro.

Suplentes: Ricardo Baptista, Polga, Vukcevic, Matías Fernandez, Yannick, Postiga e Pereirinha

They're currently 12 points off Porto who are 3rd and a further 7 points of Benfica.

I don't think that it's a cause for complacency though, as we know ourselves a poor start can easily distort what the league table should look like.

I think as long as we approach the game with a positive outlook we'll be fine. I'm also looking forward to playing European games with a) a nearly full squad and b) with a more patient style that we haven't been able to employ in Europe yet due to not playing many ties last season when our football improved and generally being rubbish in the first parts of this.
