Nacional hosts Sporting in round 13 of Portuguese Primeira Liga. The match will be played on Friday, January 8th at Estadio da Madeira (Funchal).
Nacional sets only one task for the season - to keep a place in the elite. It will allow the team from Funchal to gradually develop and achieve the status of a strong middle peasant. Nacional is in an intermediate tenth place in the standings, which is an excellent result for the club. To participate in the elite, the leadership of Nacional has carried out large-scale work on updating the roster. The bosses have signed numerous free agents and have loaned several players. There are no stars in the team, but some interesting performers are still present. These are Riascos, Freitas, V. Thill, Joao Camacho, and Julio Cesar.
The grandee of Portuguese football has gone through many personnel shocks over the past two seasons. Now Sporting has risen from the ashes, once again becoming competitive in the champion’s race. Ruben Amorim's charges lead in the standings, have good statistics, and are capable of competing with Porto and Benfica for the title. So far, the team from Lisbon has been unbeaten in Primeira (ten victories and two draws). The club is selective in the transfer market, where the bets are placed on players at the peak of their careers. In the current season, such performers as Nuno Santos, Tabata, Goncalves, Joao Mario, Antunes, Porro, Adan, and Feddal have joined the Lisbon team. Coates, Cabral, Nuno Mendes, and Thiago Tomas are doing their best this season.
Sporting’s organization of the team game is at the highest level. Many Lisbon footballers did not belong to the stars at the time of the transition to the camp of the Portuguese grandee. Nacional is not even close to matching the level of the grandee of Portuguese football, and even the home stadium will probably not help the Nationalists. Sporting will hold the initiative and create dangerous attempts on a regular basis. We think the visitors will be able to gain three points and keep their margin over the nearest pursuers.
