The Match, Player Perfomances & Quotes:

Easy match for Sporting. The champions of Lisbon had only a few problems in the first minutes of the second half, but nothing that they could not handle.

Sporting had an easy first half with Soeiro and Piresa dominating the match for 'Os Leões' with a result of 3-0. After the  break, Barreirense had better chances of scoring and they actually made the score 3-2. Sporting started playing great football again and dominated the match once again.


Azevedo did not have much problems in this match. Galvão was the best defender. Jurado failed to clear their attacks in the second half and Barreirense even got a free kick goal for that. Marques was the best in midfield. The whole attack was great. Soeiro scored a hat-trick. Cruz scored a goal and ended the match with 3 assists. Piresa was great and Mourão too. Peyroteo had a few chances which he could have scored in the first half, but could only find his goal at the end of the match. Peyroteo did not have a bad match, but was far from being the best forward in this one.

The best players: Cruz, Soeiro, Marques.
