LS R15 Rio Ave vs Benfica

Sorry lads, forgot to make the topic. It's currently half-time at Vila do Conde and the game is still 0-0.

Benfica started with Quim, Maxi, Luisão, Miguel Vítor, César Peixoto, Javi García, Carlos Martins, Di María, Ramires, Saviola and Cardozo.

The game has been emotional but not many goal chances thus far. The game will probably open up a lot more now and Ramires won't have to put up with that part of the pitch with no grass any longer.

0-1 final. Saviola after half time. Not a brilliant game but an assured performance. More or less controlled the game, especially after the goal.

Good win at a traditionally difficult venue and against an especially good Rio Ave side this year.

A more comfortable win than it might seem at first judging by the scoreline. Excellent attitude in the beginning of the second half put us in front and then we kept the game under control. This Rio Ave is a tough nut to crack and their record of goals conceded proves it. This was also the first time they lost at home this season.

Great goal by Saviola again. He's on fire! Benfica deserved a higher win, but it wouldn't give us more then 3 points anyway, so I'm fine with what we have.

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)
