Super Sporting CP & Lazio Reach the Europa League Knock-Out Stage!

  • Written on:

It’s celebration time at PUMA Football HQ as we toast the double qualification of Sporting CP and Lazio from their tricky Europa League group! 

Portuguese superstars Sporting CP topped the group with a tremendous 12 points after a string of fantastic results in Europe, meaning they went into last night’s clash against Lazio with qualification already assured. The Italians, needing a victory to be in with a chance of qualification won 2-0 on the night in a closely contested affair that could have gone either way.

Sporting CP have been one of the standout teams of the Europa League and have impressed everyone this season with their stern defending, great passing and lethal finishing in front of goal - so it comes as no surprise to see them progress to the knock-out stages. The Portugese side have also produced outstanding football at home and currently sit in third place in the Liga Sagres; just a couple of points off the leaders in what is shaping up to be another fantastic season for the Leões!

After so many great performances in 2011, we’re tipping Sporting CP and Lazio for some silverware in 2012!
