Taça de Portugal, semifinal: Estrela - BENFICA

Benfica-squad for this evening's match:

Guarda-redes: Moreira e Quim.

Defesas: Miguel, Luisão, André Luís, Ricardo Rocha, Fyssas, João Pereira e Dos Santos.

Médios: Manuel Fernandes, Simão, Nuno Assis, Geovanni, Bruno Aguiar e Petit.

Avançados: Nuno Gomes, Karadas, Mantorras e Delibasic.

---

Yesterday's semifinal:

Vitoria Setubal - Boavista Porto 2:1

---

I do not expect Trapattoni to play his first line-up against our opponent from 2nd division today. I think we will for example see the likes of Moreira and João Pereira from the start. Yet we shouldn't underestimate Estrela Amadora, but IMO we stand a good chance to reach the final and hopefully win the cup in Jamor again this season.
Força Benfica!

Benfica has to win today. There will be no excuse for a lose... We must retain the Taca.

Anyway, in case of defeat, it would be better to lose against Estrela than against Rachão's Setúbal!

soooo boring

However, 3:0 win for Benfica. Goals were scored by Nuno Gomes, Nuno Assis and again Nuno Gomes. Moreira had a few good saves. Andre Luis made his debut and appears to me to be a good one (as far as one can rate this from such a game).
I was all but impressed by the game itself, still satisfied with the result.
Força Benfica ... Setubal still to come!

Congratulations... you finally beat a team without super help from the reff or pks to save ya.

Just kidding... maybe...

Should be an interesting final; the way things are this season it could go either way.

i realised we were going for an easy win by the time i saw us playing slow, slower and motionless

though i must confess that in the 2nd half when we accelerated i did fear estrela might do a comeback :

against setubal we will win, win, win

Beating Estrela was abn after thought. Setubal will be tougher, but playing at Jamor is essentially playing home.

Good game by Giovanni, Nuno and miguel.
