Taça - 6th round Varzim vs Benfica

Off we go to another cup game today

the match will be broadcasted by RTP1 and im not sure yet on the time it was meant to be at 9pm ...then 7.30pm...then 8.30pm lol sooo......last update i got my hands on was 8.30pm GMT, according to benfica's website...i hope they dont change it till the time of the game

with derlei punished, miccoli , karagounis and petit not available due to injury, these were the players called by santos:


Goalkeepers – Quim ,Moreira
Defenders- Nélson, Luisão, Anderson, Léo, David Luiz , Miguelito
Midfielders – Beto, Katsouranis, Rui Costa, João Coimbra, Simão, Paulo Jorge, Manú, Marco Ferreira, Karyaka , Petit (unlikely to play)
Forwards – Mantorras , Nuno Gomes


i would like to see moreira on goal today, and joao coimbra starting over beto (would be a good idea to spare petit for the uefa cup game, if hes not fully recovered) . Also think its a good opportunity to give a chance to other players that arent being used so often, such as miguelito

something along this:


Code:
                   moreira

nelson   luisao  anderson     miguelito

     katsouranis      joao coimbra

manu            rui costa       simao

             nuno gomes

during the 2nd half, rui might come off for mantorras (with nuno playing a bit more behind) , and paulo jorge for simao eventually...all depending on the way the game is going naturally.
karyaka might be of use as well


diamantino is varzim's new coach, and will naturally want to start with a win over benfica, so its up to us not to give him such a gift

João Coimbra in the starting XI. Should be interesting.

I too think Quim will be starting, FS is rather old-fashioned when it comes to goalkeepers in the cup-games.
Whatever the line-up will be like, Benfica have good chances to enter the quarterfinals of the cup when not underestimating Varzim.
Força SLB!

Nice own goal by Nelson.

1-1 score right now in the 36th minute.

Since tieing it up, Benfica has looked much more positive. I can't see Varzim getting anything out of this.

simao is playing great and so is rui costa with very precise passes, although i think theres a bit of a confusion in our midfield....beto is being his usual useless self, joao coimbra is making an effort but alongside with katsouranis seems a bit lost...i think its not very clear who is playing where and who should be going for which balls, but i think that can be fixed in the 2nd half

nelson did score an own goal, a very unfortunate one as it hit his chest , but other than that hes been playing great, both in defense and going forward

personally, i would take beto out , would put players back into position, and make someone com in for the wing, be it manu or even paulo jorge , letting rui costa focus where he plays better, the midfield...

Congratulations Fernando Santos. Putting the crippled at half-time when we were controlling and creating chances was pure genius.

congratulations to varzim

our 2nd half was pathetic...if there was confusion in our midfield during the 1st half..it continued during the second one

santos was terrible tonight on that aspect

joao coimbra being replaced for mantorras ( whom i must say played utter crap, awful) instead of beto is out of this world...the ref was kind enough twice, 1st by not calling a penalty made by beto, and then by not giving him a 2nd yellow twice


finally he leaves the pitch for karyaka...who didnt bring anything good either

tactical mistakes, apathy from certain players throughout the game (namely nuno gomes, katsouranis and mantorras) and we are out of the cup


very disapointing

This defeat has one guilty,luis filipe vieira and Benfica director board and the pathetic transfer policy.

The hell with b.s crap about the 20 richiest club in the world!

Wth can Fernando Santos do,yes i ask how many defenders have Benfica,i answer four! ,with david luis and miguelito as the reserve defenders!

What the hell will happen if Luisao or Anderson get injuried,who is Nelson replacement?:rollani: ,

Who do you have to play in petit or katsouranis place!?Beto is the only option!

So with this squad we can fight for one competition no more then that,our defense and dm reserves are a joke,why was Alcides loaned?outrageous!

Wth is a player like Mantorras doing in Benfica!?a 45 min player,give me a break!

Still, Benfica should have won that game, happens, now back to the League.

I fear we are the underdogs of this encounter
And even worse: we'll meet a team that knows how to handle underdogs.
