Paulo Sousa's Videoton stun Sporting

Videoton FC 3-0 Sporting Clube de Portugal
Paulo Vinícius, Filipe Oliveira and Nemanja Nikolić scored in the opening 35 minutes as Paulo Sousa oversaw a memorable win against his old side.

Paulo Sousa oversaw a major scalp for Videoton FC in Group G as the Hungarian side overwhelmed the coach's former team Sporting Clube de Portugal 3-0.

Expectations were not especially high among the Videoton faithful due to the club's 3-0 loss at KRC Genk a fortnight ago, but the Hungarian hopefuls reacted strongly thanks to first-half goals from Paulo Vinícius, Filipe Oliveira and Nemanja Nikolić. After that, there was no way back for Sporting and they were consigned to their fourth defeat in as many matches in Hungary.

With Elías, Diego Capel and Andre Carrillo rested ahead of Sunday's Liga meeting with FC Porto, it was an unfamiliar visiting team – but that did not prevent them dominating the opening exchanges. Videoton found the net on their first foray into the opposition penalty box, however, Vinícius poking in from close range on 15 minutes after Rui Patrício had parried Nikolić's header.

Six minutes later, it was 2-0 as Oliveira – formerly of CS Marítimo, SC Leixões and SC Braga – met Walter Balufo's right-wing cross at the far post. Ricardo Sá Pinto had seen enough, replacing midfielder Fabián Rinaudo with striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel, but it got worse before it got better for Sporting as Nikolić profited from Khalid Boulahrouz's under-hit back pass and Patrício was beaten once more.

The task was as good as done for Videoton, afforded a cushion that allowed them to sit back and soak up the pressure of an increasingly desperate Sporting side. Van Wolfswinkel, substitute Stijn Schaars, Jeffren Suárez and Valentin Viola all had chances for a team that ended the game with a three-man back line, but the night belonged to Sporting old boy Paulo Sousa.
