Paços Ferreira vs Sporting – Liga NOS: Sporting visits Paços de Ferreira, a stadium where, despite a history of difficulties…
The team always managed to win since Jorge Jesus is in charge. However, Sporting’s manager will meet a manager that, ever since he joined Sporting, he still wasn’t able to beat.
Petit will be the reason for some disquiet on the side of Sporting’s technical staff. Against his teams, Sporting has always suffered with the lack of space for a more creative approach on those matches, reducing the number of chances created and stopping the Lions from getting the win.
On this match, Sporting will surely face that scenario once again. They will need to impose a bigger creativity on the central corridor, eventually resorting to an extra man in that área, someone with ability to cause troubles to a very compact block.
At the same time, they will be exposed to a team that will use quick transitions to hurt them, with Welthon finding in this kind of matches the ideal context to make use of his qualities.
With Petit, Paços de Ferreira has been defining their strategies of approach in the league.
The manager was eager for a chance to work on a team with more ability, both in terms of acquiring talent and structure involved, and Paços can offer him that.
In Exchange, they get a manager that knows very well how the history of the club was defined, being able to create links for a future success. His career has been marked by fighting against relegation, but on Paços’ roster he is able to find answers for higher flights.
Paços Ferreira vs Sporting – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The first challenge for him will be to show that he is still Petit, and that his teams can still cause troubles to the “big clubs”.
On a stage of the competition where Sporting feel like they can cut some disadvantages they have to some of their direct rivals, that next week face each other, life won’t be easy for Paços de Ferreira.
