Carlos Carvalyal recalls the classic between "your" Sporting CP and FC Porto to plan a duel with Benfica - Sp.  Braga.

Carlos Carvalyal remembered the derby between Sporting and Porto when he coached Lviv to plan Sunday’s meeting with Benfica, which will take on the field with two more recovery days in European games this week.

“Benfica have two more days to recover, but we go to the game to try to win, as I have always said since I returned to Portugal, with great respect, we are on a level playing field. I remember that when I was the coach of Sporting, we were in an identical situation, we played against Everton on Thursday. [para a Liga Europa] and Porto played for the Champions on Tuesday and we never stopped winning. The mind is as important as the body, and on Sunday we will be at the top, ”said Coach Sp. Bragi after home victory over Ludogorets (4: 2) in the Europa League “We were a strong team, decisive, We started the first half very strongly, achieved an impressive victory, which is limited taking into account the opportunities we created. We were always safe in the game, with good edges, one more daring, the other more secure due to the density of competition and the proximity of games. It was a convincing and honest victory, we are in the first place in the group, we are satisfied and now we are going to rest, because we have a game in less than 72 hours. [com o Benfica, domingo]”, – said Carvalal, analyzing today’s game, saying in context” difficult “:” We played 72 hours ago, and it is impossible to recover players in this period of time, this is the red line where injuries can occur. … Therefore, I turned to the associative mass with a request to support during failures, but this was not a failure, but a strategic retreat, because if we always played, as in the first part, we did not have players. The team was smart in the way they ran the game. “

“Ludogorets created a lot of difficulties for Olympiacos, which is a good team, in the qualifying round of the Champions League, they were taken off on penalties, and this victory is the merit of Braga, which gives no place to their rivals, they manage to create many opportunities, and when you lose the ball, quickly restore it, we simplify the game.The team is still building, reaching maturity, things cannot be completed in two days, they are new players, some of them have not played in a year. but with a stop [no campeonato] we managed to balance the situation. Effectiveness in attack is growing, we are growing as a team, but we have even more opportunities, ”added the coach.

BALL – Suarez scratches Europe out of his future (Uruguay)

BALL - Suarez scratches Europe out of his future (Uruguay)

Now Luis Suarez, representing Nacional de Montevideo, rules out the possibility of playing in Europe again. At the age of 35, he is gearing up to play in a fourth World Cup – and face Portugal in the group stage – but he knows that after leaving Atlético Madrid, the future will no longer run through Europe.

In an interview with a Spanish newspaper Brand, the striker recalled that he lived his peak at Barcelona, ​​where he was part of the famous MSN trio (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) and won nine titles in three seasons, including two leagues, the Champions League and the Club World Cup. . He scored 121 goals in 147 games, so self-esteem can only be good: “I give myself 12 because of the expectations with which I arrived, which were not so many, because there were Leo and Neymar. They said that three roosters in a chicken coop cannot live together, but we showed that we can. I am proud of my career, I lived up to expectations. After that, the level went down, but even so, I always exceeded 25 goals in a season. And I give myself 10 points for Atlético.

After two years at Atletico, he returned to his country in August and signed with his youth club Nacional. President José Fuentes has already said that Suarez will leave the club when his contract expires, at the end of the year, and there is talk of MLS, but Suarez left only one guarantee for his future:

“It’s not known yet. It’s one of the options that I see very close, but I don’t think about it now. I like the National. I’ve already made my European career and left very proud. I had many options before returning to ” Nacional, but looking at this: Groningen, Ajax, Liverpool, Barça, Atlético… what could be better than this career in Europe? That’s why I couldn’t be worse after Atlético team. It was the perfect trajectory. So it made sense to go back to Uruguay, not because it’s a minor league, but to complete the circle.”

BALL - Crown Jewel agrees to go to Munich (Bayer Leverkusen)

According to preliminary news, this Friday the German newspaper BuildBayern Munich officials secretly met with Bayer Leverkusen’s striker Florian Wirtz to convince the player to move to Bayern, and the response from the young star was positive.

The 19-year-old striker, currently recovering from injury, was one of Bayer Leverkusen’s best players last season, drawing interest from some of the richest and most powerful sharks Europeans, but Bayer Leverkusen demanded 100 million euros for Wirtz’s trade, an amount that eased the player’s pursuit.

However, the current moment of Bayer Leverkusen, a club that has refused to sell its stars to Bayern Munich in recent years in an effort to thwart the ten-time champions, used to have some of the best players in the Bundesliga and historically the backbone of the German national team in its ranks – is becoming even stronger, as this was seen, for example, with Kai Havertz, who, despite a very strong Bavarian desire, going to Chelsea could change the scenario that existed at the end of last season.

Recall that this Friday, the next opponent of Porto in the Champions League was defeated by four unanswered goals away from Bayern Munich and is still in the penultimate and 16th places (the playoffs remain in the Bundesliga), but can still finish the eighth round in the penultimate place, if this Saturday Wolfsburg wins or draws in the reception with Stuttgart with the same five points.

BALL - Lions return to winning ways in the League in a reception by Gil Vicente (League)

Sporting returned to victory in the League, beating Gil Vicente at home by three goals: one in the first leg of the 8th round of the competition. A good tonic before the match against Marseille next Tuesday in the Champions League.

In a somewhat monotonous first half, the “lions” marked their superiority without imposing a very high pace. Nuno Santos won a cross from behind the back of the entire defense and already in the penalty area struck from the bottom and crossed, and Morita appeared at the far post, correcting the trajectory of the ball and opening the scoring (16 minutes).

Shortly after, the Japanese reappeared, finding an imbalance in depth: class in unmarking, receiving and heeling for Pedro Goncalves, who even took the opponent out of the game before shooting into the goal (22 minutes).

Returning to the second half, the guests abandoned the top five in the rear and achieved more brilliance in attacking the opposite third. Murilo snapped at Adana before Fran Navarro returned to attack as the Spaniard added three more threats.

However, already on the other half of the field the ball was again in the depths of the gate. Esgaio start for Rochinha and this one to overcome Lucas Cunha and Andrew by scoring 3-0 (82′). In the farewell match (90+3′), Fran Navarro finally managed to celebrate with a header from Elder Santana.
