PSL - Game 17 - Benfica vs Boavista

Friday - 02/02 - 20h30 GMT - Estádio da Luz - SportTV

Back home making our debut in the Luz for the second turn of the league and hoping to continue our great record at home. 7 games, 7 wins. 20-3 in goals.

Boavista is currently 11th in the league but they are always tricky. We can expect Pacheco's style of play to leave it's marks on the pitch and on our players.
On the other hand, he's not very lucky when he travels to Luz. The last couple of seasons were easy wins.
We also have some payback to do. We lost 3-0 in the first turn, with 3 red cards for our side.

5 points behind FC Porto, and playing ahead of them, we can't lose this opportunity to cut the distance to 2 points and put pressure on them.

Players called
Goalkeepers: Quim, Moreira;
Defenders: Nélson, Luisão, Anderson, Léo, Miguelito;
Midfielders: Petit, Katsouranis, Karagounis, Rui Costa, Beto, João Coimbra, Paulo Jorge, Manú;
Forwards: Simão, Nuno Gomes, Mantorras, Derlei.

Miccoli is still out injured, and Derlei makes his debut. He won't start though.

Probable line-up:

Yes, 2nd turn of the league, let's not forget that we played all of our tough opponents on the road, be it retrete D'alvalade, Estadio do Gamao, etc.

Last time we got smoked by these guys, with some fresh-off-diapers kid from some far away land scoring all over the place. Revenge time.

Don't worry Pila, our team is on fire, we'll give them 4 again.
Can't wait for Derlei to finally show up on the pitch with the aguia ao peito!
Força Benfica!

it SHOULD be 4-0 by now, no doubt

HT 0-0, over 50.000 fans

we are playing great though, fast and with a well oiled up machine, probably playing our most attacking game so far this season...just beautiful

sadly...we are missing unbelievable chances.....nuno gomes, anderson, katsouranis, karagounis, simao, rui costa.....all could have scored by now, and even if william is having a great night...lady luck has been absent, namely in the couple occasions the ball kissed the bar/ pole

anyways, i trust our boys will be able to grab a win tonight, they are giving it all and playing like champs :thmbup:


FORÇA BENFICA!!!!


ps: derlei is all excited in the bench he's been getting up, giving instructions towards the pitch....good to see his enthusiasm

This game is poison for my heart, still 0:0, Benfica are running towards Williams goal, with the keeper having gone as copas with Nuno Assis yesterday as it seems.
I just fear Boavista will strike a deadly counter-attack!

Unbelievable. I lost count on the balls that hit the post.
Probably our best game this season, and we failed to bring the 3 points.
And it's not like Boavista defended that well.

Screw this, the league is gone.

But we did draw with shit Boavista. They had 33% of possession, almost didn't pass the midfield line, and didn't defend that well, either.
But they had all the luck in the world.

Não ha campeão sem marcar golos ... when will Benfica ever become an effective team? It doesn't need a pyromania of incredible misses, one goal would be enough! Some zynical god dressed in blue and white is leading the fortunes of modern football, if there was need to prove this fact before, it is proven now.

Actually, we've been very effective in the last games. Today was exactly the opposite. A lot of chances, no luck at all.

actually chris, last couple games benfica was effective...specially in the game against leiria, in which we didnt have that many chances and did score and win....tonight was just one of those "unreal" games i hadnt seen in a loooong time...but the way we played, the chances we built, ....should we keep it....i'm very optimistic about our future (provided we keep the injuries away)
