we did lack some consistency in the midfield at some point (mainly during the 1st half, kats brought more of it in the 2nd half, just like what happenned last week when we faced paços), but what an improvement we showed today!
we saw a huge yebda, a huge sidnei, a huge quim , a great aimar at last, a great reyes ( what a goal!)and overall a very pleasant to watch benfica. there is still some improvement to make regarding retaining the ball a bit more ( we still rush a bit), but im sure we'll be getting there
one thing i have to give to quique: the man is not affraid to make subs when needed , he doesnt wait until the end of the game or until we are loosing, thats something im all for it and im glad that he does it
on sporting's side, rochemback was massive tonight imo and i dont get why did paulo bento subbed out postiga. He was playing well and bringing danger to our side, unlike yannick, or later on derlei / liedson
and i agree, veloso played terribly
