Friendly: Benfica - Juventus

Ibra breaks down Benfica Saturday 6 August, 2005

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Trezeguet crushed Benfica in Portugal, while Inter, Udinese and Torino were also in action.

Juventus travelled to Lisbon and gave new Coach Ronald Koeman a wake-up call with their dominant performance despite injury woes. Robert Kovac, Gianluca Zambrotta and Jonathan Zebina were already out of action before Giorgio Chiellini and Alessandro Birindelli limped off during the match.

Alessandro Del Piero was left on the bench in favour of the dual centre-forwards and the tactic worked as they bagged a goal apiece. Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a fierce left-foot strike from distance and then rolled the ball across for Trezeguet’s tap-in.

Gianluigi Buffon preserved the scoreline with a couple of fantastic saves on Geovanni and proved he is back on form.

Inter were also in action this evening and hammered Serie C side Lecco 4-0 thanks to an Adriano penalty for a foul on Obafemi Martins, the Nigerian netting the second himself with a splendid solo effort, while Ze Maria and Alvaro Recoba rounded out the scoreline.

Serse Cosmi’s Udinese warmed up for the Champions’ League preliminary round by beating Serie C2 side Portosummaga 3-0. Vincenzo Iaquinta, Fausto Rossini and Marco Motta were on target.

Torino, who are still uncertain if they’ll be playing in Serie A or B this season, saw off Greek outfit Apollon Kalamaria with a 2-1 scoreline. A Petkakis own goal broke the deadlock before Pippo Maniero and Parmaxidis netted.

My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...


Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....

Wow, what a presentation. As long as this happens in preseason it's fine, but given our last two friendly, a lousy win to Estoril and an astonishing loss to Juventus there's still a lot of work to do.

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)
