Sporting without Rúben Amorim to beat record points in just one lap – Football

Sporting will face Santa Clara, in the Azores, this Friday, with the aim of isolating themselves in the lead of the League (on condition) and beat the maximum record of the team in terms of points in a single round. And all this without coach Rúben Amorim, who stayed in Lisbon because he was infected with Covid-19.The lions come from a streak of 11 consecutive games to win for the league and want to increase that record. In the last game of the first round for the national champions, in case of victory, Rúben Amorim’s team beats the previous leonine record already set by the coach. Last season, Sporting, in the first half of the League, had 14 wins and 3 draws, which gave 45 points. Currently, the Greens and Whites have the same victories and only two draws (44 points). The best record ever in the Portuguese League with the same number of games and scoring system belongs to Benfica by Bruno Lage. In 2018/19, the eagles made a virtually immaculate second round with 16 wins and one loss (48 points). Lions appear in the Azores with two casualties and both due to Covid-19. Gonçalo Inácio is in isolation and will give his place in defense to central Neto. But the main absence will be that of Rúben Amorim, who also tested positive.The coach gave the last training sessions from a distance (video call) and will watch the game at home, giving instructions to assistants Carlos Fernandes and Emanuel Ferro, who will lead the team on the pitch. The sporting director Hugo Viana, who was sent off against Portimonense, who won’t be on the bench, won’t even be able to go to the dressing room, (Leonino triumph 3-2). In the event of a tie or victory, Sporting is isolated at the front of the championship, as FC Porto will only play this Saturday, in the trip to Estoril.
