Denis Zakaria scored in the 37th minute of the first half with a right foot shot from the centre to the top left corner. In the 40th minute, Mahmoud Dahoud got a second yellow and was sent off.

They’ve played two games since the CL opener, winning both games with one goal to nil scoreline. The Verde e Brancos beat Maritimo in Round 7 of the Liga Portugal. A late penalty goal in the added minutes of the game saw Sporting through with the win.

Maritimo’s goalkeeper Paul Victor got a red card after receiving the second yellow in the 90+3 minute for a bad foul on Jovane Cabral in the penalty area. The home team were awarded the penalty and Pedro Porro converted it from the spot with a right footed shot to the top left corner.
