Matchday 10: SL Benfica vs Rio Ave

The match will be played on sunday at 19.15 local time in Estadio Da Luz
I yet don't now how our injury-list is going so I take the positive case of each but Miccoli available for granted and suppose the following line-up:

GK Quim

RB Nelson
DC Luisão
DC Anderson
LB Leo

DM Petit

RW Geovanni
MC Manuel Fernandes
LW Simão

FC Karyaka
SC Nuno Gomes

The usual doubts are on whether to play Geovanni or search for alternatives on the right such as Karagounis maybe? Meanwhile I believe Karyaka should be starting, he can add something useful to our offence, especially against a so-called minor team. Nuno Gomes needs a support striker anyway, he has to do everything on his own upfront since Miccoli got injured. Probably Mantorras could start alongside him. Hmm, too many options, decide for yourself.

FORçA BENFICA! Show some reaction!

I think he should start Mantorras. The guy is out of practice and needs a run of games to get his form back. He almost looked good against Naval.

Simao is out,so start Karyaka on the left and Karagounis in the middle. Geo should stay on the right after a positive first half against Villarreal.

simao and quim are out, so i reckon the starting line -up will be urs bier, except for :

quim ---> rui nereu

simao ----> karyaka

and therefore, karagounis playing ahead of the DM's....

i really hope that geovanni plays a lot better tomorrow...he's taking his time :rollani:

I start to think someone hasn't told us the truth about Quim? Media, medicals, spokesmen, whosoever ... For how long will he still be out? :irritate:
Rui Nereu has my trust and support though. Força Rui Nereu!
Simão not playing however is something that always hurts us, he's the missing link evidently, hope we can compensate this loss.
Força Benfica!

well, ive had an appendix surgery once...took me a week to remove the stitches, another week to be able to walk fairly well, another week to run overall, took me 3 weeks to do my normal regular life.,..i reckon it will be something along that for Quim...i also find it silly that they came up with that 1 and half week miracle :rollani:

HT 1-1

petit

anyways, im really fed up with koemans inventions.....joao pereira is playing again as right winger:rollani: the results are again obvious...we barely create any danger from the right wing...he might actually take nelson's place, defending and let nelson move forward..but that isnt happenning

now, beto is playing instead of manuel..ok, hes doing fine so far

karagounis has still ups and downs, he HAS to get rid of the ball way more often, he's glued to it, and that harms our offensive moves a lot...i still think he shoulg be given a chnace on the right wing sometime :rollani:
i dunno whats koemans problem with playing karagounis and karyaka at the sametime, must be a superticion he has :rollani:

geovanni...playing crap as always this season so far...he was asked to play on simao's position...and he's not playing in any position he's been walking around the pitch, forgeting to help leo on defense too

a lot must be done in the 2nd half...

rio ave makes it 1-2...on offside :rollani:

what a joke...the same linesman who wrongly called us 2 dangerous offsides in the 1st half (one for nuno, one for leo isolating himself in front of the net :rollani: ) , now doesnt see rio ave's offside :rollani:

petit

scoring one free kick is great, scoring two...big up

nothing to add to my comment from the 1st half other than karyaka should of coz have started , mantorras needs a couple slaps...and 2nd time in a row that we tie becoz of referees mistake :rollani:

3rd time in a row that koeman invents:rollani:

good thing we'll have a break now, before the braga game :thmbup:

2 straight draws just ain't cutting it I'm done with commenting on games like this with "good effort". With the team we have, we should be winning, these points will be very crucial towards the end when we're head up with others. Koeman really has to stop playing Perreira
