PSL - Game 15 - Académica vs Benfica

With Sporting dropping two points, it's essential to get the win.

The game is Sunday, 20h45 GMT, and will be broadcasted on SportTV.

Players called:

Goalkeepers: Quim, Moretto.
Defenders: Nélson, Luisão, Ricardo Rocha, Léo, Anderson, Miguelito.
Midfielders: Petit, Katsouranis, Rui Costa, Simão, Karagounis, João Coimbra, Manú, Paulo Jorge.
Forwards: Nuno Gomes, Miccoli, Mantorras.

Rui Costa and Miccoli are back, Assis is suspended and Kikin wasn't called witch should mean he's really leaving.

Probable line-up:

thats a good line up, i agree that rui should be "spared" for the 2nd half

Benfica can get to just one point behind Sporting for 2nd place so there's definitely some motivation for this game.

We tend to traditionally go for those make-or-break-situations and here's another one ... the good thing it, we also tend to make them.
Força Benfica!!!

falta um ponto! Ricardo Rocha and Leo score early and late as Benfica conquer Coimbra by 2:0 victory over the football team of the academy.
VIVA!

Hard win but a good game of football. If that was the rule in our league, the stadiums wouldn't be empty like they are now.

Scored early, when Ricardo Rocha finish off (in offside, I must say) a second ball coming from Pedro Roma.

Good attitude from Académica and I was a bit disappointed with ours. Too much space given and not enough help from everybody resulted in us resorting only to counters.
Witch we did well. Scored two times by Katsouranis, both ruled offside and second one wrongly so. Another cracker from Nuno Gomes to the bar and several other opportunities in front of the goal.

We suffered, but got the 3 points and are now trailing second place by just 1.

Rui Costa returned in league games, and Coimbra had another chance showing progress. If he keeps it up, I'm sure he'll start coming on much early.

Next, Belenenses... again.

I know. I have been asking myself that ever since.
