Sporting has spent much of the season in the team to partially able to compete with Benfica and Porto, but it has not happened so far and the desired result is missing for now so that ten points behind the already mentioned teams.
They have a solid defense of the Portuguese league, but from time to time to know enough to blunder and fail, and sometimes unexpected bass of the weaker teams and no attack is not very great, and proved to be mistakes in the defense to make up for his goals.
On the other side Manchester City in a series of six straight victories with only one goal received so they form a high-level and burst into a good rhythm so I doubt I will go here and to win in order to solve as soon as its position for the next round.
The difference between these teams is very high, it is sufficient to say that the team Sporting worth 135 million euros a team Manchester City 465 million which is almost three times as much about the quality and class players not to mention. The previous mining of the Europa League, English team threw out the team Porto 6-1 on aggregate, a team that is unmatched, but a few years in Portugal and what you can do a solid team Sporting ….
In my opinion, they can cause disaster if they want to but I believe that with two goals scored away goals to finish most of the work.
