(*) Marítimo e Belenenses Têm um jogo a menos, defrontando-se amanhã.

Comentário: Os três primeiros Braga, Porto e Nacional venceram, com destque para o triunfo bracarense que “arrumou” o Benfica a oito pontos. O Sporting e Vit. de Setúbal vencendo ambos fora situam-se agora à frente do Benfica e a seis pontos do líder. Nesta jornada salienta-se, efectivamente, os três triunfos forasteiros : Sporting, Nacional e V. de Setúbal, este último bastante expressivo na Figueira da Foz. No último jogo da Jornada o Boavista beneficiou da inferioridade numérica dos forasteiros para na 2ª. parte vencer por 2-0 e igualar o Benfica na sexta posição.

Quem está em má forma é a arbitragem. Nas últimas jornadas os erros de palmatória são de bradar aos céus. Erros graves no Braga-Benfica com um golo para cada lado que não deviam ter acontecido (penalty inexistente para o 2-2 e golo em fora de jogo no 3-2) e também no Dragão com um golo inventado (a bola não entrou na baliza).

O Guimarães derrotou em casa na abertura da jornada (6ª. feira) o Gil Vicente e agora Jaime Pacheco respira um pouco melhor. Amadora e Paços de Ferreira repartiram pontos

Na próxima jornada (depois de a meio da semana termos mais uma ronda europeia: Benfica em Lille na 3ª. feira, Porto recebendo o Glasgow na 4ª. e Guimarães em casa para a Uefa na 5ª) temos:

Sporting ganha em Penafiel e ultrapassa Benfica

Penafiel 0 – 1 Sporting

Em jogo de muita luta ganhou quem tem melhores jogadores

O Sporting apresentou-se em Penafiel ciente de que ganhando ultrapassava o Benfica e de que não ganhando viria o Braga … por um canudo, isto é a muita distância. Pois foi o Penafiel que entrou melhor jogando nos dez primeiros minutos no meio campo visitante, mas à medida que o tempo decorria o Sporting equilibrava. A primeira parte terminou praticamente sem oportunidades com um jogo muito equilibrado, mais lutado do que bem jogado.

Na 2ª. parte o Sporting apareceu com Tonel em vez de Miguel Garcia (lesionado?) a fazer parceria com Polga e ao contrário do início do jogo foi o Sporting que recomeçou mais empreendedor. Liedson aos 49′ tem uma boa oportunidade mas o remate sai sem jeito. O treinador do Penafiel pretende dar maior poder atacante e faz entrar Roberto para o lugar de Orahavac, mas dois minutos depois (aos 59′) na marcação de um livre para a área do Penafiel por Moutinho, Avelino tem uma intervenção incompleta e é derrubado por um colega de equipa, sobrando a bola na confusão para Liedson dar o toque vitorioso na bola.

O Penafiel não se entregou, lutou bravamente, meteu mais avançados, dispôs de um livre muito perigoso desperdiçado e de uma oportunidade para empate por Roberto que de cabeça atirou a bola ligeiramente ao lado, mas no final o Sporting obteve os três pontos e a 1ª. vitória fora (depois de 2 empates) na era Paulo Bento.

De destacar a muito boa exibição do miúdo Nani que vem confirmando excelente potencial.
A arbitragem adoptou um estilo largo de deixar jogar, teve alguns equívocos (e vários agarrões passaram sem punição), mas nenhum da gravidade dos que vimos na véspera.
Ficha do Jogo:

Penafiel: Avelino; Pedro Moreira, Odair, Weligton e Kelly (Pedro Araújo 69′); Nilton (Cristóvão 78′) e Jorginho; Bruno Amaro, Orahovac (Rogério aos 57′) e N’Doye; Bibishkov.

Sporting: Ricardo; Rogério, Miguel Garcia (Tonel aos 45′), Polga e Tello; João Moutinho (Luís Loureiro aos 88′), Custódio e Sá Pinto (Carlos Martins 69′); Douala, Liedson e Nani.

Golos: 0- 1 Liedson aos 59′

Acçao Disciplinar: 61 Cartão amarelo para Pedro Moreira por travar a progressão de Nani. 64′ Cartão amarelo para Nilton. 84′ Cartão amarelo para Custódio (Sporting), por empurrar Odair, quando o Penafiel se preparava para marcar um livre. 90′ Cartão Amarelo para Welington, por falta sobre Nani.
