Nuno Dias was the mirror of contentment. The Leonin coach was very pleased with the performance of his players during the 9-2 rout against Candoso, which offered Sporting a ticket to the semi-finals of the Portuguese Cup.
“We played a great game. The players were incredibly serious and showed tremendous seriousness, doing everything well. They are to be congratulated for the exhibition and for the way in which they managed to increase the result”.
In view of the meeting with Quinta dos Lombos, scheduled for this Thursday at 5 p.m., also at Multiusos de Sines, where this eighth finals of the futsal competition, Nuno Dias underlined that with the same attitude as today, Sporting will be closer to victory: “We will face the duel with Quinta dos Lombos with the same seriousness with which we faced the game today. If we are at our level, as we have shown for most of the season, I think we will qualify for the final, which is one of our objectives.
We recall that Sporting is the holder of the trophy, after beating SC Braga (7-1), in the final of the competition for the 2019/2020 season. Last season (2020/2021), the Portuguese Cup was not awarded as the competition was interrupted and then canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
