Matchday 8: SL Benfica - Estrela Amadora

Quote:
Quim apto para o Estrela

Ronald Koeman deverá respirar de alívio quando Quim subir ao relvado da Luz esta manhã. O internacional português está praticamente recuperado, e tudo indica que estará disponível para defender as redes encarnadas frente ao Estrela


The match will take place in the Stadium of Light in Lisbon tomorrow at 9 local time with Leo being not Koeman's usual initial line-up due to the red card he got himself in Porto and Miccoli still on the list of injured players ... so here's my suggestion how they'll line up:


Quim

Nelson
Luisão
Anderson
Ricardo Rocha

Petit

ManuFernandes
Karagounis

Geovanni
Nuno Gomes
Simão


FORçA Benfica!!!

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)

In "Da Luz"? How can you call our stadium "Da Luz" if you've lived in Portugal? It doesn't make any sense...

u think quim is already fit? hope so

anyways, yep, i would use that same line-up...probably with karyaka coming in during the 2nd half (becoming a traditional sub ) and i would like to see mantorras play a bit....we need to see how much we can count on him this year...seems to me like the perfect game to bet on him for more than 15m

Oops ... well, it sounds a bit like some charming backstreet-slang: See ya in da Luz, baby

Seriously I didn't mind that when writing it. :undecide:

But I came up with another version to hopefully satisfy you.

Yap ... Mantorras indeed should get more playing time. He could very well also play alongside Nuno Gomes especially in such a match like the one tomorrow.

In that case...

About the game, i was hoping Koeman to start Dos Santos since this will be a possession game and we need to attack well. Ricardo Rocha is useful on the left in the most difficult matches, but against Estrela, he won't be able to help Simão come forward, nor will he cross the ball.

true true, and also, we may need to play him sometime ( long season, doesnt take much to have both a CB and leo out) and dos santos needs play time...but i doubt koeman does it...i get the feeling he doesnt like him much....

I'd like to see Dos Santos as well, same goes for Nuno Assis. Just for the sake of seeing how our alternatives are in shape. But I fear both are very unlikely to play since Koeman doesn't want to take the risk of everyone (especially the media) bashing him for playing them in case something goes wrong.
Where's Bruno Aguiar, by the way? He hasn't played a single game this season . Wasted talent if you ask me ... I'm well aware that we have better options in midfield at the moment but I still believe him to be a good reference in the future and reckon Benfica should opt for a loan move.

the cup game is coming up on the 26th, will be played at bessa against leixões...i believe koeman will try to make experiences there.....taking our average 2 week game as off late, it may be an opportunity to rest some players and test others

I don't underestimate them actually but I don't know if we shoudn't avoid the risk of one of our keyplayers getting injured in that match. Plus I want to see our 'rejects' trying to force their way into the team (lone due to this they might be motivated). Some of our reserves should have what it takes to beat Leixoes, honestly, if not so I don't know what they're doing at Benfica.

Goals from Karyaka & Nuno Gomes About 65 minutes through and we're looking at yet another win. Nuno Gomes with 8 goals already this season

Outstanding ... this Benfica-team is something special!

Well and Nuno Gomes scored his 91st league goal (in 179 games) in a Benfica-shirt ... 9 to go Nuno
