Benfica - Seville

I've heard there's a game this Wednesday for some final or other.

There's still a chance in a blizzard's hell that UEFA will reverse Markovic's red card for mouthing off to the Juventus bench. That would really come handy since Salvio got his second yellow for his inability to get his arm out of the way from a 5-yard-shot.

No Enzo either, and Feijao is out indefinitely. We'll have to count on some Gaitan magic and another solid from our Center Back pair to keep a clean sheet, and perhaps score on a set piece or two.

Carrega neles, Benfica!

i doubt uefa will let us play markovic though...

we have to do our best, be confident (but not cocky) and hopefully dont be too nervous and be able to cope with the massive pressure they 'll have on their shoulders

As expected, Markovic's appeal to repeal the suspension was denied.

We'll have to do this without the boy.

I doubt it, they're dead. But in terms of inspiration, I hope the players still feel inspired.

crappy game from both sides, benfica needs to put on the field all their talent and figthing spirit!

the last 10mins were finally acceptable, and i hope it carries for the 2nd half

right at the end of the 1st half the referee didnt see a penalty in our favour.....just like he saw a foul that sequeira didnt commit and awarded him a yellow card...not very reasssuring

but basically what we have to do is carry on playing like we did for the last couple mins of the 1st half, and trust that we can do it ffs! confidence and personality! come on benfica!

Losing another winger really hurt our game.

Should have had a penalty there. Unfortunate.

Lol bad luck. Beto was about 5 yards away by time cardozo and rodrigo finished their 2 minute runups!

Hard luck guys, this ****en curse wont just go

Your players went for their penalties so hesitated and afraid, they were acting like they have already lost it before even trying. This was so ridicules.

This must be harsh witnessing two finals with penalty loses, I can feel you. I`m sorry

Unfortunate. But I'll take a losing a final any day over as a spectator any day, twice on Sunday.
