WATCH: Nani makes Maribor’s defense look silly in Sporting CP’s UEFA Champions League win

1 Comment

Sporting Lisbon moved into second place in UEFA Champions League Group G with a 3-1 win over Maribor on Tuesday, and the Portuguese club also provided one of the most watchable videos of the week.

Nani collected a pass just inside the 18 and dribbled around a pair of Maribor players before having his shot blocked, collecting it, moving around a few other tentative tacklers before blasting the ball home.


Sporting won 3-1, moving past Schalke after the German club was smashed by Chelsea.

Like many fun to watch goals, the magic of the shooter is magnified by the mistakes of the defenders.
