PL Week 10 Sporting de Braga x Benfica

We're headed to the Pedreira tied for first to play an always hard Sporting de Braga team this Sunday. Without looking it up I'm pretty sure that we haven't beat Braga in Braga since Quique's last season when Jorge Jesus was still coaching the local Arsenal.

This will be a tough game since they have been playing a very high octane Football in the past years.

The hour changed so it's back to being 5 hours between Eastern US and Lisbon so 8 hours between PST and Lisbon.

So, 18:00 is 6PM in our US lingo , 6-5= 1PM EST which would you make you correct sir.

Braga 1-0

Proença calls for an unbelievable penalty....i reckon we should start playing with armless players

clearly his face isnt hurting anymore

This penalty was a joke, Emerson had his arm next to his body while jumping with his back turned, so far I've seen Proenca kills us with the Silva penalty against Sporting, Lisandro's penalty against Porto and another ridiculous one today....
pfffff, escaping there with a point is a miracle lol

BTW, Luisao was clearly grabbed and thrown down in Braga's box as bad as any player can be grabbed and nothing :smileani:

But this makes it interesting....

Yes I saw the penalty and I think it weas a good call. I find it annoying to see any single time that a ball touches the arm or hand of a player being called as handball these days but that seems to be FIFA/UEFA's indications to refs because that is not only happening in Portugal. Having said so, Emerson jumped with his arm slightly raised and the ball was deflected by hios elbow. I've seen them called for much less than that so I can't see the big fuss about it. Actually the same goes to Emerson himself as he practically didn't complain about the decision.

About the lights out being on purpose I find it a ridiculous claim. Why would Braga do that? What would they gain with it? As if that would have cut an hypothetic intense attacking pressure that your club was putting on them. The game was even and the power failures had no influence whatsoever in what happened in it.

Anyway, congrats for your draw. I only watched until Sporting's game started but from what I've seen until then I think it was rather a case of you winning a point than losing two.

Artur Moraes: «Sempre que acelerávamos, a luz caía»

«O empate foi positivo, dadas as circunstâncias. Sempre que acelerávamos, na primeira parte, a luz caía. Depois de o Sp. Braga marcar, nunca mais faltou a luz. Sempre que o Benfica joga em Braga acontecem coisas do outro mundo

«Na grande penalidade o Lima escolheu bem para onde rematar. É um excelente jogador, muito experiente.»

http://www.maisfutebol.iol.pt/despor...6187-4062.html

Whatever, stuff always happens when Benfica visits Braga so I don't agree with the penalty but a draw is better than a loss.
Still tied for first after visting Dragao and Pedreira.

And Record:

Também na conta oficial do seu Twitter (@arturmoraes1), o guarda-redes escreveu: "Em Braga temos sempre que jogar contra 11 e mais os truques fora de campo!! Valeu a luta".

Just find it weird coming from a guy that played for Braga last year :smileani:

Didn't watch the game, but it looks like I didn't lose much. Just the ordinary cheating that we're used to in the portuguese league, especially in the Braga games. Hardly surprised.
