Old Diav bets on Benfica

having won a bet yesterday, Old Diav has placed 10 Euros on Benfica winning the CL at 151 :eekani: :eekani:

Do I stand a chance?

If not Milan,
Forza Benfica

What do you expect? I'd say: Sure you stand a chance ... but then again I'm a Benfiquista
However, needless to say, I wish you best of luck with your bet

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)

151/1 is a pretty good bet IMO

I repeat: Do we stand a chance?

Yes we stand a chance, but not a hughe one. Our team is quite young and does not have too much Champions League-experience yet. We have very gifted players in both offence and defence and I expect them to make a mark in Europe by reaching the second round or even the quarterfinals. Everyting going further would suprise me positively to be honest. But everything is possible.

Absolutely, and as said, 151/1 is a great bet. Even if just 1 Euro for example

That's exactly why I placed my bet
As said, yesterday I won a bet and placed some of the cash I won on Benfica

Winning the CL is almost out of the question, not because of our lack of individual quality, but because of the lack of experience at the highest level.
One thing's for sure if that happens: I'll be happier than you in the day that you win 1500 euros.

I didn't say that. Betting on Benfica is one of the most intelligent things one can make. Still, this one's risky

King Diavolo made a great bet considering the odds. I'd throw 10-20 Euros on it for the hell of it.

And anyways, we're atop the group with Manchester United looking up at us already. Things look good as it is.
