The Derby: Benfica v Sporting

I think everything now depends on this match! I said it before but those matches ended terrible. If we loose here where finished and have to play a qualifying match for the CL.

I hope we winn this one, but it seems like Sporting is on fire this month. Better we don't see the same match as against Porto.

Without stats at hand, i have the impression that the team in worse form tends to win these derbies, at least in recent years.

Any update on the status of Simao & Luisao for this weekend's game?

Simao's a go, but looks like Luisao will miss the game.

I hope we crush them; that would make up for not winning the league.
7-1

that's a score that your team knows pretty well :smileani:

They tend to pride themselves in that 7-1, funny part is that we were the champs that year.

Ha, a luxury we cannot afford this time, we need a victory tonight, now that Boavista did their job so well.

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)

No Simao for this one - wonder what happened...

Sporting started off in smothering form - way too quick for Benfica. Benfica looked like their usual headless-chicken selves in the beginning of a game. Finally Rui took over and established some order and equalized in their first opportune moment with a great reaction shot from Micolli.

Gam e now looks wide open and incredibly fast paced. A score to break the draw could mean an exagerated score to whom ever comes out the fastest off the line. It's that kind of game.

Some one is going to have to explain to me how Liedson gets to arm tackle from behind (NFL-like tackle from behind where the player dives and grabs the shoulder pads of the runner) and doesn't get so much as a warning.

Other than that, fair score so far. Frentic game - can go either way here in the second half.

Freedom is the great liberator of the mind – it threatens only the comfort of the sequacious intellect.

Good lord Nuno Gomes is bad.

There's two guys open for a pass and he doesn't even pass to either one of them, instead between them and loses possession.

His aerial ability, as in jumping and vertical, is attrocious. TELLO beat him in the air for God's sake.

What a joke of a player.

Miccoli is playing very well, let's hope he gets another one here for the win as he will not get any help from the awful Nunozito.

oh well, good game, open and entertaining

either team could have won, pitty becoz we were really close...that last shot from miccoli, with ricardo already beaten would have sealed it

bad ref, caneira should have been expelled, and when u give 3mins xt, u give 3mins xt, not 1m

porto is gonna grab the title now, and we have to win the next 3 games, and hope for sporting to slip
