Teams: Benfica; Portugal
Boavista isn't a very good team to begin with. Once they got a guy sent off, they became a pretty bad team despite their early tying goal.
Good ego-boosting game, but they need to do that to respectable opposition. Otherwise, I don't think they played that well. More specifically, we did not defend well as a team, nor on a per-individual basis, where the last man was cinsistently outrun by Mateus. I know the guy is a speed demon, but our lateral backs need to show more than they did.
Good win. Combined by the slapfest in Braga and the meltdown in Porto, an excellent win.
Anyone else notice Felipie's absence now that the contenders are seperating themselves from the pretenders?
