It hasn't been that bad, just both sides losing possession a lot. Nacional are playing as expected... with Candeias and Mateus flanking Rondon up front, they would always play the counterattack as those 3 are all quite fast.

Benfica seem to be struggling from having to play Witsel very, very deep in the field due to no Javi, and it doesn't help that both Aimar and Carlos Martins appear to be in sleep mode.

This first half just brought me back of the Benfica of the late 90's, no clue what they're doing. Plenty of talent in the bench, let's see what JJ brings in.

Matic on for Carlos Martins just before half-time. Martins injured.

Martins left for Matic, Aimar hasn't been seen

we are playing very slow, and our midfield cant hold the ball

salvio is so far the only player that seems determined to actually win this game

JJ is clueless.....

hopefully, with martins out and matic in, witsel will play where he's supposed to be playing

There's also some guy by the name of Pablo Cesar Aimar, not sure what he's doing warming up the bench.... Let's tell JJ that he can grab anyone else to keep that spot warm, ok?

JJ is obsessed with "adapting" players

so Melgarejo is a LB, Witsel a destructive DM....i wonder where he thinks Aimar should be playing this season...maybe as goalie?

Cardozo makes it 1-0 after a nice cross from Super Maxi
