Fantastic first 30 minutes of the game. Benfica should've been up by at least three goals or so. Sidnei did score eventually through a header on a corner kick but really; Salvio hit the post once, the keeper saved another shot, Saviola missed a great chance which Cardozo should've had as he was in a better position and there have been plenty of other chances so far.

Benfica are suffocating Guimaraes with an incredible pace. The speed of Benfica's attack look to be at its peak. We're very difficult to defend when we circulate the ball with this kind of velocity.

Salvio is brilliant tonight. Involved in everything.

Salvio has looked impressive since the very frst game he had. Making us forget Ramires.

6-0 would have been a fair result.

First half of the year, I threw this beloved club of mine under the bus. More like Jesus and Javi Garcia. Jesus for always trying to change things when we face a tough test (See Champs League & Porto debacle) and Javi because I think Ramires helped make him look good. Well those 2 things are gone now and watching this Benfica in the segunda volta is just well....mindblowing.

Their game is so air-tight and beautiful to watch. As Villa Boas put it himself, Benfica is currenly the best team in Portugual at the moment. Now, I don't know if this is a typical Mourinho head game or a sincere gesture on his part but either way who cares. We're playing like we did last year again and it feels great. Too bad we stumbled early on.

I don't know what was a funnier scene today at my local Casa Do Benfica. Celebrating this 90 minute show & victory with fellow Benfiquista's in front of Portistas and Sportinguistas who were also in attendance, or watching those very same Portistas and Sportinguistas hoping for a Benfica loss, only to spend their money on Bifana's, Vinho Verde, or Super Bock's that end up going into Casa Do Benfica's pockets at the end of the day.

There's only team that can draw 50,000+ at its stadium against the Fourth best team in the league according to the table, and play them off the grass and score 4 past them...yes 4. I don't care what the official scorer's sheet documented. That team is Benfica!

Mentally challenged linesman, good that we weren't dependent from that nerd.
Great match by Benfica!

Best 90 minutes of the season. Outside of Cardozo's penalty, pure brilliance from start to finish.
