BALL - Lost from St.  Gilloise on Saturday and leaves a warning to SC Braga (Europa League)

Club Brugge’s win at the Estadio do Dragao left the football world open-mouthed and still echoes in Belgium, but Saint-Gilloise’s visit to Braga won’t have such a devastating impact, João Gamboa is convinced.

“I think Dragao’s 0-4 won’t happen again, but Saint-Gilloise are a great team and Braga might have difficulty imposing their game,” warns the midfielder, who switched from Estoril to “Leven”. .

Gamboa is well aware of the value of the warriors of the European enemy. Not so much because of the natural knowledge of Belgian football, which he acquired in three months, but because of fresh memories: Leuven met Saint-Gilloise on Saturday and lost at home 0-3.

“Saint-Gilloise is not at the level of Brugge, but they are a team with a very good organization and quite dangerous in counterattacks,” signals the midfielder, who highly appreciates the opposing Warriors’ team. an “intellectual” form of how he plans his game, as well as an indication of some personality that can make a difference.

“Center Burgess is very strong and he makes a difference in set pieces; and Boniface [avançado] It has great quality. In the game with Leuven, he almost did not score a goal from the center of the field, ”he is recovering.

Despite Saint-Gilloise’s ability to make a name for themselves, Gamboa believes the Warriors have a reason to win tomorrow’s game: “Braga is stronger and has European experience that could be decisive against the Belgians.”

BALL - Ruben Amorim talks about the delay and accuses Marseille of being "immodest" (Sporting)

Ruben Amorim’s statements after the 1-4 defeat in Marseille.

Delayed arrival at the stadium: “As for the delay, it was due to traffic jams. A meeting is held between members of the two clubs and UEFA where they explain how many minutes it takes to leave the hotel and reach the stadium. This is a learned thing. We were late because we were completely stuck in traffic. It’s not our fault, we sent the team in 45 minutes, warmed up, connected the feet, did a massage and mental activation, I don’t want anyone from Sporting to complain about this. But the tone of the people of Marseille, as if it were our fault… They lacked a bit of humility, and I hope it doesn’t happen to them. And when they talk to us as if we are to blame, it is confusing …. And people at UEFA have to be so sensitive, because we always talk about business, about how the Super League was just business, and at the moment it’s all the same. What we did was protect the players, connect the legs, massage, warm up. We were the ones who got hurt because we didn’t have time. I know it annoys Marseille because they don’t know when to come out for a warm-up, but it’s not our fault and we’re sorry for our delay. We want to follow all the rules. It’s not our fault, we did everything according to the rules.”
