PSL - Game 7 - Benfica vs Estrela da Amadora

Back to the portuguese league, we'll be playing at home against the weakest team in the league so far.

There should be some changes to the team, some players will probably rest (Luisão, Katsouranis) and we will probably try a more attacking formation.

Some press is advancing the same formation that played against União de Leiria, while other present this more attacking one:

--------------Quim-------------
Nélson - Anderson - Rocha - Léo
--------Petit - Nuno Assis------
-Kikin Fonseca - Miccoli - Simão-
---------Nuno Gomes-----------

Other players called:
- Moreira
- Luisão
- Alcides
- Beto
- Miguelito
- Katsouranis
- Karyaka
- Mantorras

I'd like to see Fonseca given a run in the team. Nuno Gomes was very disappointing against Celtic.

We won. 3-1. Miccoli, Simão and Karyaka.

I'm pissed off beyond belief. Congratulations to the ref. That ridiculous red card to Miccoli, our best player so far, showed us what to expect next game against FC Porto.

the entire game was a shame, from the refereeing side......the red card to miccoli, the wrongly called offsides, the amount of yellows, the penalty over miccoli that wasnt called.....that red card to rui duarte towards the end was just pathetic too lol

glad we won , and glad sporting and porto drew.....even without miccoli we can and we will do it :thmbup:

Yeah, we're now 3 points behind with one game less at home.

But I'm feeling a Benquerença vibe for next week.

u think its him ?

well...whoever will be.,....i think we can expect serious ref beating but....the worst that can happen is to lose right?

nah, i truely think we gonna make it...and more......we need to do well in that game, it would be a huge moral boost!

and we need such a boost.....we are finally coping with the smaller teams, but need to be able to overcome a stronger opponent....this could be it

Not quite right. Losing is bad, mmkay, but losing the 3 points and maybe 2 or 3 players during the game like Benfica and Sporting usually do, is worst.

Katsouranis did well. Not his best game, but could have scored at least twice. Easy.
He made it up by brilliantly assisting Miccoli for our first goal.

We call him Katsouranis. Katsui?!

In Sporting, since the last time our two teams played against each other, we call him "mate".

Havn't seen the match. But what I hear of that referee is clear evidence again. PdC was interested in getting enough players booked or even of the matchsheet for next weeks clash. This drama of an old, disrespectful and disrespectable man with too much power will never end.
Good result for our side though.

Katsouranis has been playing well, he is in a good physical condition, can destroy the oppponent's game but at the same time create attacking plays. He also has a good long range shot. My concern is that he tends to lose the ball in midfield with inaccurate passes and that originates dangerous counter-attacks.
