Benfica-Porto, Supertaca Candido de Oliveira

That's right, the first official match of the season will take place in Aveiro, expect to see a packed stadium split down the middle with red and blue.

How does that work?

You're the defending champions, we finished in 3rd place and have a new manager.

Wouldn't it be quite a feat for this 'new' Porto to beat the machine that is Benfica right now?

If Benfica loses this match, I know that this is just football and my confidence won't be shaken. Benfica has proven in this pre-season that we're just as strong as last year.

Porto made more changes and a heavy defeat against Benfica could be devastating to them. The defence looks shaky and the new coach is under serious suspicion.

Sporting has no pressure so they'll probably have a good start.

I have to agree with you, you're not favorites and shouldn't have as much to lose.

On the other hand i do not think you'll win anyway.

Great game so far! - looks like Porto CBs are weak but can score

I missed the first 20 minutes, but it looks and souns intense!

Roberto is awfull.. but David Luiz is just TOO GOOD.. I mean really his run forward can match Lucio... no idea how you managed to keep him with you guys, he's just wasted, he needs to play in one of the elites of europe right now.

You guys killed them from the left flank.. you should've went there and isolate it more often..and for how long is Maxi Periera out? your right side is practicly not excisting..

Can't see Porto keeping the lead if you put the pressure on thier rightside defence early on and let Coentrao take his man and cross to the box... Cardozo is bound to capitalize from there.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

Stanko, Porto dominated that half except for the 30-38 minute range or so.

Anyways, yes, Benfica should be attacking down their left flank the whole game because Cristian Sapunaru is an embarassment of a footballer. Can't even take throw-ins for goodness sake. I have no idea why the superior Miguel Lopes is on the bench, hopefully AVB makes the change.

Good lord, our midfield is atrocious tonight. We need to drop Carlos Martins asap.

Excuse me, but killa says Carlos Martins is the best midfielder in the league and should be an automatic on the national team.

You need Javi Garcia more..I don't like Aairton.

And yea Joshua from the 30 min orso is what i've managed to watched... you guys do look very danguras at the counters with Varela and Hulk.. aslong as you take care of the right side of your defence I don't see them breaking in without David Luiz starting the attacks - he's like a bloody code in a PES game he's just a good 2-3 levels above everyone on the pitch right now.... I just love Beluschi(spelling) touchs on the ball.. ever since he was at River.. just a genius with the ball... Moutinho looks anemic though(how wierd is it watching him in a blue shirt!)

How was that not a yellow for Carlos Martins

And Roberto is just a wreck out there alm:

Good sub, Aimar was invisible.. is Maxi pereira injured or Amorim is just prefered over him?

Stanko, and how was this not a red for David Luiz? Comes up and kicks Sapunaru to the ground when the play is stopped.

First half - Cardozo elbowed Sapu in the head away from the play. Peixoto goes studs in on Varela's calf then stands on his ankle.

Second half - Martins silly lunge at Varela, now David Luiz kicks Sapunaru to the ground.

Great sportsmanship from the red bastards showing their frustration at things not going so easily for them.

Na a red for David Luiz would be too much, you gotta take the game and atmosphere into considerations there..

The step from Peixoto was ugly though, don't think he ment it that much, but still I yelled "ouch" for Varela..

But indeed Benfica plays hard out there, as expected for these kinda games.. but I mean really, wasn't any clear straight red(didn't see the elbow though).

What misses from both sides..

Goal! Falcao... Varela vs Luizao is just not fair...

Amorim just doesn't need to play RB..

Cristian Rodrigues about to come on.. looking forward to see him play.. always loved him.
