Benfica vs Porto

Today we play yet another derby against Porto, and as usual, it will be of major relevance

We are 3 pts ahead of them, and although it may not be decisive for us,because so far the head to head factor is in our favor, in fact i look at it as such.....its key to win this match if we want to make sure to win the title

there are still tough games ahead for us, and in that regard Porto has an easier ride, so we have to enter the pitch this afternoon with nothing else but the victory in our minds

we'll be playing at home, we'll have our fans massive support......we can do it! so lets do it guys :thmbup:

the game starts at 17h GMT, and both teams will be almost in their maximum potential....so far only Tello for Porto wont play (injured), and Salvio for Benfica (injured)

Jackson Martinez is leading the Goalscorers list with 17 goals, and our Jonas is right behind with 16 goals, so thats a duel to look forward aswell

Força Benfica!!!!

As long as you don't play for a draw. That would be very dangerous.

on the list yes, but he wasnt training with the team, so i doubt he will make the becnh...we'll see...

as for the draw, we need to go for the win kleb, need to have ambition here...those who play for the draw usually lose

kleb, porto has a deeper squad, we know that from the begining of the season, im surprised he isnt starting with herrera though

thats why salvio is a miss for us...yes, attacking options are close to non existant in the bench...what we have in the bench is midfield contention in fejsa and amorim...so lets hope we can have our starting players to make a good game.....i like the choices jesus made, not much else he could do, its an attacking team, lets hope for the best:thmbup:

good lord what a crappy game, so so badly played by both teams.....

still, only one goal chance, and it belonged to porto, dunno how jackson missed it

Jesus has a lot of work to do in this HT....for one, he needs to replace eliseu, not only is he a liability, as having that yellow card, with danilo, and brahimi on his ass....nothing good can come from it


also that midfield needs intervention, it is so so rusty....

could be as simple as having talisca leave the wing and play behind the strikers...but who will play on the wing? talisca is crap on the wing...but could ola john be the solution?

when im considering the possibility of fielding in ola john..then we are really talking about desperate times here

maybe we just need to sub out pizzi, have talisca in his place, and get lima on the right wing...

kleb , i agree in winning the midfield ( which we havent so far), but cant sit and defend the 0-0

amorim or fejsa in, with talisca out ( lima to go to the right wing) , could be a possibility yes, to get a hold of the midfield, but not with the goal to keep it at 0-0.....rather with the aim at being able to actually make a decent connection between defense and attack, and get a shot at porto's net, which we havent so far, unless you count that corner and jardel's header

Força Benfica!!!!

Jesus was grounded on pragmatism despite the fact that he was bitterly bitten by it not-so-long-ago. Iron will. Kudos.
