EL Semifinal; Benfica vs Braga

That's right folks, Benfica will play a Portuguese team in European competition assuring that there will be at least one Portuguese team in the Europa League final. The Warriors from Minho seemed to be playing at the top of their golf ball throwing level as of late, let's hope that they're not any better than what we faced this year as I feel that we will prevail as long as we keep 11 men on the field.

Hell is back and it goes by the name of LUZ

Maxi Pereira14

Salvio's out for the rest of the year, Gaitan and Carlos Martins are day to day and might miss the game, Aimar wasn't to healthy either.

Braga is a much more organized side and defends better than us.

It will go down to our individual class who is much higher than them.

coentrão,maxi,gaitan,aimar,saviola.

Alan fakes being hit by Maxi to get him thrown out of the game, classic piece of shit move that he knows well, good thing it wasn't a Portuguese ref.

Didn't watch the game - but congratz you guys.

Fact that you're playing Braga makes the home\away thing less of an issue then it would since you play there against them every year... Benfica-Porto final would be epic, hope you make it through and hold onto your lead.

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.

Braga always with the luck on their side.

benfica miss 5,6 good chances they scored in a setpiece and almost didn't create nothing in the rest of the game.

Aimar not in the second leg,it will be missed,he played well today.

-----------Roberto

Maxi---Jardel-Luisao---Coentrao
----------Javi Garcia
Martins----Saviola------Gaitan
---Franco Jara----Cardozo

this is how I would line them up in Braga
I dont like Mr Peixoto STARTING
We must score in Braga Early is key We dont want to be in a 0-0 situation in the second.

Viva ao Benfica e Forca ao Maritimo.

Jara will most likely play wing instead of Martins who will play in the middle, Saviola at #10 at the begining of the game is a No No in my oppinion, I wouldnt mind seeing him on the bench if we had Salvio with Jara taking Saviola's spot, oh well.....
