Should be pretty easy for you as long as you convert your chances (of which there will be many no doubt).

A bit concerned about our left side at the moment. I really gotta give it to Filipe, that Emerson is just godawful.

What makes even more odd the whole Capdevilla affair.

Anyway, you could play with 11 Emersons and you would still comfortably beat this Otelul das Pulgas.

Emerson's just a number, the guy doesn't add anything to the attack and is average at defending.

I'm hoping for a good win and hopefully without any Divers, too bad I do not know anything about Romanian football nowadays, used to be pretty good

Well, I think Otelul has no chance, so you'll get the win and 1st place. A 0-0 would be a huge result for them tonight and they'll probably try to go for that. So any sparks of creativity will have to come from Benfica.

Right now unfortunately Romanian football is not very good... but I have some hopes.

EDIT: Otelul's best defender is out.

1 shot, 1 in, Benfica with the early goal, doesn't look like there was any Diving from this Portuguese side

Basel-Man Utd 1-0

good conspiracy against them in this group

Such a class act Filipe, now do yourself a favor and go look for Sporting's "pistoleiro" Silva, Jardel, Acosta's diving acts on youtube.

This thread is for Benfica x Otelul of the Champions league, post anything that's relative to it and save the stupid club rivalry for a thread that calls for it :thmbdown:
