Both Javi and Nolito were picked for anti performance enhancement drug control, Porto had some of their athletes go through the same process as well.
The only bad thing so far is the ref Pedro Proenca who has shown to be the best in Portugal but also had 2 bad calls against us, I would much rather see a ref from Porto

So far so good

Let's hope it's the old Javi, not the guy that missed 4 games.

If James starts and Otamendi doesn't...then Porto will win this.

Keep in mind that a player that comes off the bench will have an advantage over one that starts the game.

Let's hope both teams finish with 11. This hasn't been a problem in the last few games, but up until recently, this was about the only thing we could guarantee - someone would not make it through the whole game with their entire team intact.

good reacting by us, Porto with 3 yellows so that preventing our guys from going 1 vs 1, let's not get one in a counter and we should be able to score.

Aimar missed a header with only Helton in front, we have chances, just not scoring...

Cardozo blasts one past Helton, Porto wanted an offside but none of the Benfica players were even close to the line, great game so far.

Proenca with a joke of a yellow on Cardozo, can't see Cardozo finishing up the game as I'm sure he'll do something worth a normal yellow,wtf.......
