1-0 at the half, Javi from an Aimar corner kick.

no big referee mistakes so far, bad offside call on Maxi Pereira and perhaps Ricky Von on their side according to the local lizard moderator.

Also horrible yellow on Aimar for taking the ball away from Insua, joke of a call

Insua rivals Fucile for the most Hollywood act and gets a foul from Javi, no touch, unreal call

FT 1-0 Benfica. Sporting very improved over last year but we were still better. Cardozo sent off was a joke

now seriously, another very exciting game, the 1st half was quite balanced and very frantic, with both teams playing open and looking to score

if only all derbies could be like that!


sporting started better the 2nd half , and when cardozo was expelled (8 games out of 10 playing against 10 men, i think...) i did fear they would eventually score...but that-s when Jesus stepped in with very accurate subs and with a lot of GARRA we made it

this team has proved this week, in 2 key, difficult games, they mean business

best player in the game....well aimar was amazing during the 1st half, pure class, javi garcia was a tiger all game long, witsel... i still can-t believe we actually hired this guy , and artur was simply massive

on sporting's side, rui patricio had a great game, skaars and joão pereira were good too, and that forward whose name i cant pronounce (von ...) . Capel was too much of a bitchy diver

Porto needs to watch out, both Benfica and Sporting are displaying good football and healthy lockerooms

NEXT!!!!!!!!!

Exciting game, congrats on the win.

Maxi Pereira had a superb game, as did several others, but his combativeness and relentless intensity is just a treat to watch.

Good game after Manchester, let's not forget that we had less time to recoup our energy.

I liked Aimar, Witzel, Maxi was good too and Javi.

Sporting fan set their section of the stadium on fire.... Class....

Javi has really benefited from having Witsel. He's back to the days of when he had Ramirez.
