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.
