Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Sporting 2-1 Athletic: A remarkable comeback at the José Alvalade. Sporting were on top throughout, and though it seemed like Athletic were heading for a smash-and-grab win through Jon Aurtenetxe (54), Ricardo Sá Pinto's charges showed real heart and goals from Emiliano Insúa (76) and Diego Capel (80) have deservedly put them in the driving seat in this tie.

    The referee blows for half-time.
    Sporting 0-0 Athletic
    Graham Hunter, José Alvalade: It is slightly surprising given how open this semi final first leg has been that we reach half time in Lisbon scoreless. André Martins, in his debut UEFA season, has been one of the stars of the show.
