Sporting vs. BENFICA

Previous encounters this season have seen Sporting prevail, how will Rui Vitoria approach this match to make sure Benfica come out on top? Benfica now lie only a single point behind their city rivals, while Porto will be hoping for a draw, such a result coupled with a win for them would draw them right back into the title hunt.

Rui V has the team playing really well. His only Kryptonite has been the inability to get a win against any of the direct rivals. The 2nd game vs Porto - despite the loss - was demonstrably different from the first. Benfica were better and should have won. It'll be interesting to see how this one goes.

Freedom is the great liberator of the mind – it threatens only the comfort of the sequacious intellect.

Why isn't Julio Cesar in goal tonight? According to the Official Website Ederson starts in goal.
Must win!
Força Benfica!!!

Right result for this half is a draw but I guess SLB fans don't mind what could or should be... :-)

and we won yessss ahahah soo good


no we didnt have a brilliant or inspired game, but this time the strategy fit...scored and held on to the result

unlike with the game with porto a few weeks ago, where we missed so many chances and were by far the dominant team ( and lost the game) this time we were super efficient , scored in our opportunity, locked the castle, frustrated sporting and were lukcy that sporting missed a couple opportunities

we are ahead now and its up to us to keep it that way

long way to go still, 9 games ahead, and each one of thme will be a final like our coach said, thats the spirit, so far we have managed to counter all the criticism thats been put on the team, both players and mainly coach, and are now alone in the top

on a side note, sporting's coach after match press conference....wow, talk about "unfair" play...sad sad display, even by his standards


BENFICA!


ps. well done jeff

From 8 behind to a 2 point lead while overseeing a roster that saw players in and out due to injury.
