PSL - Game 23 - FC Porto v Benfica

You all know it I asume. Tommorrow we will probably play the match for the title. What are your expectations about this match? I know it's gonna be a very though one, but if we can winn or at least draw I think that title is gonna be ours!

Tommorrow 1st of April at 20.15, we will (hopefully) write some history. And I mean positive history.

a very important game, though i wouldnt call it the game of the title, becoz both benfica and sporting still have to play against each other

but yes, its a must win, or at least a must not lose game.
its a unique chance to stay ahead but we have to keep our heads cool nevertheless, and play with our brains

rui is not ready to start, but having him in the bench will be great nonetheless, he may come of hand at the 2nd half, and david luiz can cope with the pressure i believe. he's been very well and i believe he will again. anderson, even though hes been extremely irregular this season so far, i think he will step up as well

we played well both derbies this season, and tomorrow wont be different, the team usually steps up for the big games

quim's absence is what worries me the most tbh, but i hope the fans at the stadium show their support to moretto (and all of our players) either way, becoz we are playing home and have to make our players feel we are right behind them all game long, regardless of who things are going

i'm not aware of the players that have been called yet, so , will propose a line -up when i do

one thing i dont want to see is nuno, miccoli and derlei starting all at the sametime...has to be nuno and miccoli, or else we are screwed

Made it the official match thread.
This will be our most important game since Boavista in Bessa 2005. If we can win this we will fly to the championship on a cloud, I swear.

Força Benfica!

Santos tends to drop the ball bigtime in derbies... Although in this case I hope i'm wrong. GOOD LUCK!

the players called by santos:

Goalkeeper: Quim , Moretto

Defenders: Nelson, Léo, David Luiz, Anderson , Miguelito

Midfield: Karagounis, Petit, Beto, Katsouranis, João Coimbra, Rui Costa, Paulo Jorge , Simão

Forwards: Miccoli, Nuno Gomes, Mantorras , Derlei


if quim is fit, lets go for it!
rui i wouldnt start, i think its probably better to play him in the 2nd half


so here goes mine:

Code:
                  Quim

nelson    anderson    david     leo

                 petit   

    katsouranis        karagounis

                 simão   

         miccoli     nuno

thank u

well we did win the game away with sporting, and the game away with porto we seriously could have had a better result the way we played, but tonight its different, the team is in better shape than it was back then and more confident too

totally agree with that inacio! or paulo jorge instead of katsouranis with a more winger position. but then simão have to move more to the left and karagounis in the center. or something like that, but we probably be to attacking orientated. so i go with your eleven.

at some point in the game we can field rui in , for karagounis or katsouranis (depending on whos performing better) and let simao focus more on the wings but during the game we'll see what needs to be done

i think santos will start like that too

I beleive that's going to be the starting 11 as well, doubt Paulo Jorge will play from the begining since Santos has lost some confidence in him. So basically those 11 players with the backline being exactly like that with only the midfield and wings changing a bit if anything.

It really doesn't matter who plays as long as we're in first place by the end of the night.

The line up should be the one inacio mention.

This is a massive game for us a lose and the title is gone.

In my opinion nelson and leo will be very important in today game.
