LS R27 Académica 2-3 Benfica




LIGA SAGRES ROUND 27
18/APR/10 | 18:00 | SportTV
Estádio Cidade de Coimbra

After Braga's win yesterday against Leixões, we are forced to win yet again. Luisão is suspended for this afternoon's game and Cardozo and Saviola are recovering from injuries, which means that they could both fail today's match. No starting eleven prediction as the official lineup will soon be revealed.

CARREGA, BENFICA!

Tied 1-1, Well-Done scored in the 3rd minute and Academica pulled one back after.
To note that Academica's goal shouldn't have counted as its player touched the ball with his arm right before he shot it, very important so that the hates know that.

Weldon once again pretty effective, a bit like Académica with their 2 bojardos from downtown.

Academica played when they had the ball....the difference was made by
their defensive weakness and our attack strenght.

Weldon,well done.

WTF is Quim doing on both goals?

Wouldn't it be brilliant to wrap the title up in Porto? Can't wait!

I bet Porto won't sell any tickets to benfiquistas, preferring to pay a fine rather than having us celebrate in in their own stadium. If we do win it here in Porto, like I predict we will, there will be problems, I'm sure of it.

I'm actually interested in seeing how they would handle the situation if SLB clinches next weekend. Either way, it will be must see TV.

The ball deflected off our defense on both goals, their first goal was also irregular.


I hope Braga wins next weekend so that we can celebrate in Porto

And with Braga going to the CL qualifiers as unseeded, the chances of them going through are minimal. That means twice as much revenue from TV rights for good old Esse El Bê (the money is split evenly by the clubs from the same country).

Braga, or no Braga, it's pretty clear that the road to the CL for the 2nd place Portuguese team is going to be a tough one from now on.

10 years ago, we qualifyed by knocking off Beitar Jerusalem F.C. (Who? Exactly)
Sporting had to face Twente and Fiorentina this season.

Quim on the first goal had no chance the ball hit off the back of the Benfica defender and changed direction.

But the second goal was bad.

Viva ao Benfica e Forca ao Maritimo.

I'm pretty sure that Rui Costa knows that a top quality GK is a fundamental investment for next season. Quim, Júlio César and Moreira are not on the same level of the rest of the team.

And to think how promising Moreira was once upon a time when he just broke through.
