Training focus shifts to CD Tondela
Antunes and Tabata train separately from the group
Having recovered from their efforts in the midweek fixture against CD Santa Clara, Sporting CP's focus in Friday training shifted to their next encounter: A meeting with CD Tondela. The game takes place on Sunday at 8pm local time, and will be the team's sixth game of the Liga NOS season.
Two players trained apart from the group: Vitorino Antunes, who undertook individual drills on the pitch but is still not available for coach Rúben Amorim, and Bruno Tabata, who underwent physio work and trained in the gym.
The Leões will have another session on Saturday at 10am at Alcochete, and at 6:30pm Rúben Amorim will preview the game at the Estádio José Alvalade in his pre-match press conference.
