CL - Celtic Glasgow VS SL Benfica

crucial game for us tonight!

not only because , in theory, we will be playing the weakest of our opponents in this CL group, but also because we'll be lacking Luisão ( punished), carlos martins ( injured) and maxi pereira (punished)

( not to mention the recent loss of both javi garcia and witsel)

its a challenge but imo we will miss mostly Maxi (miguel victor likely to replace him....meh)

but thats what Jesus is paid for: coming up with effective solutions to overcome the difficulties, and tonight i trust we will make a good result, and that is....a victory


Players called: ( and able to play)

Goalkeepers: Artur, Paulo Lopes , Bruno Varela;

Defenders: Miguel Vítor, Jardel, Garay , Melgarejo;

Midfield : Matic, André Almeida, Bruno César, André Gomes, Pablo Aimar, Enzo Perez, Nolito, Ola John, Salvio , Gaitán;

Forwards: Cardozo, Rodrigo , Lima

FORÇA Benfica !

So far Celtic has no solutions and we're not doing much.

a well fought game by both teams, but very few goal chances

it was, like we say, the "possible game", given the circumstances

this team has a lot of work to do in order to re-adapt itself to the current situation

glad to see the newbie andré almeida, of coz he is no maxi , but he was decent tonight

Barca coming back to take full points and splitting them with Celtic equals a good night. Of the three visits over the last couple of years, this was their most successful performance - but I have to wonder how much of that is due to Celtic.
