Benfica vs. Zenit

I thought you needed some of my thread opening luck after that tough loss against Porto. Your opponents Zenit have been up and down in the RPL but enjoyed remarkable success in the CL group stage, albeit against somewhat weak rivals in the form of Valencia, Lyon and a surprising Gent.

ok, game starts in 30mins , and here are the players called

For Benfica we have this starting line up:


Júlio César;
André Almeida, Jardel, Lindelof , Eliseu;
Pizzi, Samaris, Renato Sanches , Gaitán; Jonas , Mitroglou


subs: Ederson, Sílvio, Nélson Semedo, Carcela, Gonçalo Guedes, Talisca , Raúl Jiménez

its the best line up we have atm, imo, and its the way to go, agreed on the subs aswell


for Zenit we'll have:

Lodygin, Anyukov, Criscito, Lombaerts, Garay, Danny, Shatov, Javi García, Witsel, Hulk , Dzyuba

subs:
Kerzhakov, Luís Neto, Maurício, Yusupov, Zhirkov, Kokorin, Dolgov

zenit doesnt play since 9th december, so we have to take advantage of their lack of rythm and playing home its important to build a good result

lets hope we increase our shooting efficiency, back to the levels we are used to this season


FORÇA BENFICA!!!!!

Shame I can't watch this match, I expect all the channels here will be screening PSG/Chelsea. beIN really need a second channel to give viewers the choice.

Also watching it, SBS are screening it, assumed they'd be showing the PSG match. Kind of dull IMO, not many chances for either side, Benfica a couple more than Zenit, actually can't recall Zenit creating anything.

Calling Berlusconi to ask him to buy Renato

Zenit do a very good job closing down the cross or final ball everytime.

Well deserved win. Dont like how we are missing great scoring opportunities in our last two games though. We have to do a better job finishing.
