BALL – Amorim gives confidence after defeat in derby (Sporting)

Full trust in the group and above all in the main characters. Sporting lost the local match with Benfica in Alvalade 0-2 on Sunday. In addition to the defeat, the lions did not score goals as guests, which had not happened since July 2020 – 0-0 with Vitória de Setúbal – and suffered two, which only SC Braga and Portimonense had scored this season. redout leonine

Despite these two negative points, Rúben Amorim will give a genuine vote of confidence tonight to the team and the names they present to Benfca’s starting audience. Despite the fact that Feddal was already available, he recovered from lower back pain and Matheus Reis returned after a no-play game – and with a penalty imposed by the Disciplinary Board on the last Dragão classic, the Sporting coach puts the same. Dragão central defense coin measuring forces with the Reds: Luís Neto on the right, Coates in the middle, Gonçalo Inácio on the left.

Matheus Reis enters the eleven, true, after the confirmation of the lions’ petition in good time, but in place of Nuno Santos, on the left wing of the lion, the original position of the Brazilian.

And if the defense that missed two goals in the derby remains the same, then the attack that was zero and has to score at least two goals tonight to entertain hopes of advancing in the Portuguese Cup and being there remains unchanged. In the Jamor finals, it will also be taken on carbon paper last Sunday.

Changes, these, only in the midfield and those that were thought to be natural from an early age.
