Zenit's official web-site is reporting on the bet between Hulk and Witsel regarding the Benfica v FC Porto match -

If Benfica win, Hulk will buy lunch for Witsel.

If Porto win, Witsel will buy for Hulk.

No doubt Hulk eat's a lot more than Witsel!

It's viewed like this in the Bosnian village world:

If we lose, I won 20 euros!

1-1 in the 10th minute.

The game has started at an incredible pace. Everybody going 100 miles per hour out there.

terrific start, insane 16mins with 2-2, but then the pace went down, and although it didnt turn into a bad game, the goal chances were almost non .existant, appart form cardozo's miss already very close to the end of the game

alll in all, it was a fair result

mom for benfica, matic for sure :thmbup:

One difference between Euro and American sports is the discussion on head injuries. Two of the major sports (Football and Hockey) have had it become a nearly daily discussion. The others (Baseball, Basketball, and Futebol) also have it, but in lesser degrees due to the nature of the sports or their importance.

Cardozo clearly was concussed on his collision, but it wasn't mentioned too much. The announcer noted he looked off, but that was it. Who knows what kind of test he was given at halftime, but those injuries require the highest levels of precaution.

Porto played very well. I agree with VP that Maxi was fortunate on his tackle of Moutinho.

Good game overall, Porto with Lucho, Moutinho and Fernando has more ball but couldn't do anything with it, Benfica good to come back and tie even though Artur gifted a second goal, Porto cracked in the middle to late in the second half but we couldn't make them pay.
These games ever since Jorge Jesus took over Benfica have been non stop action, Man of Match for me was Matic who just showed that he isn't as physical as Javi Garcia but much better with the ball in his feet.
On the other side Alex Sandro showed why they paid 9 Million but Danilo failed to show why the huge signing.
We could have had 3 points this game, Cardozo missing in the second half might haunt us in the end, we'll see.
