Alvalade secure 12-goal lead ahead of second-leg aginst AC Doukas

Sporting CP secured a comfortable win by margin of 12 (35-23) this Saturday against the Greek side AC Doukas, in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals.

The team from Alvalade dominated from start to finish and had already established a 3-0 lead before the Greeks found the back of the net for the first time, after five minutes of action. Building on their solid opening, Hugo Canela's side smartly managed the rest of the half and went in at the break with a 21-10 lead.

Canela used the second-half to rotate his players, bringing on the young goalkeeper Manuel Gaspar in place of Cudic, but it made little difference to the balance of proceedings and by the time the full-time whistle blow Sporting CP had constructed a 12-goal cushion for the second-leg.

Champions League winner Marco Oneto agrees contract until the end of the season

Sporting CP has officially signed the Chilean captain Marco Oneto. With more than 80 international caps under his belt, Oneto was also crucial in his country's run to a 3rd place finish in the Pan American Games.

The 34-year old is an imposing figure, standing 2.04m tall and weighing in at 112 kilos. He has enjoyed a brilliant career in Spain, winning the Copa del Rey twice, along with a Spanish Supercup and a National Championship. He was also part of the FC Barcelona team that won the 2011 Champions League.

Reflecting on the deal, Oneto proved happy with the move to the Portuguese capital: "Sporting CP is a globally recognised name. It is one of the bet clubs in Europe and fights for the title. This is a great opportunity and I want to build on the expectations that people have. I know a lot about the Portuguese League already and I know it is really competitive, which is good for my career. I am really looking forward to getting down to work."
