Sporting carried out, on Wednesday, at the Academia Alcochete Stadium, the last training session before the Arsenal match, tomorrow, for the European League.
As usual (and obligatory) under these European conditions, the press managed to watch the first 15 minutes of the session, with three important observations:
– Bellerin missed again, which means that, having missed the first leg due to injury, he will miss the reunion with the old team again, for not recovering in time
– Morita didn’t show up, he survived (he stayed in the gymnasium, in a physical administration), but he also couldn’t get into the accounts of the London duel with ‘Artillery’, because he would serve a penalty, just like Coates. Another absentee, in addition to Bellerín and Morita, was Daniel Bragança, who continues to recover from a serious injury.
– There were no less than five goalkeepers in training: Adan, Franco Israel, Andre Paolo, Diego Callai and Diogo Pinto. Adán continues to train normally and will be back in goal.
The team travels to England this afternoon, where, starting at 7 pm, Ruben Amorim and a player will start previewing the second leg of the round of 16 of the European League, against Arsenal (2-2 in the first leg).
