Sporting B could only manage a draw away to Desportivo das Aves with Abel Ferreira’s team spending the majority of the game with 10 men after debutant Liu Yiming was sent off.
Abel Ferreira made quite a few changes to his line up with Liu Yiming starting in central defence for his first ever professional appearance. Luís Ribeiro started ahead of Mickaël Meira and elsewhere Welder started at left-back and Lewis Enoh and, another debutant, Ousmane Dramé both started in attack.
For the most part Sporting were the superior side but failed to make the most of their chances.
The game was made more difficult for the visitors when Liu Yiming was sent off just 2 minutes before the interval.
For the restart Abel Ferreira was forced to bring on another debutant, this time new signing Matías Pérez to sure up the defence sacrificing Lewis Enoh.
Despite still being the superior team with just 10 men Sporting B could not find any great openings and so the game ended goalless.
In their next game Sporting B will host Tondela coming up this Sunday as they now sit 7th in the Segunda Liga.
