Benfica VS Setúbal

Tonight we are back , playing home with Setúbal, at 9pm GMT


Will of course be another tough game, Setúbal is not comfortable and needs to fight for pts in order to avoid relegation, and for our team is another must win game

Good news, Mitro and Gaitan are back :thmbup:


These are the players called by Rui Vitória:

Goalies: Ederson, Paulo Lopes

Defenders:Luisão, Nélson Semedo,Eliseu, André Almeida, Jardel, Lindelof

Midfielders: Renato Sanches, Gaitan, Pizzi, Samaris, Carcela, Guedes, Salvio, Talisca, Fejsa

Forwards: Jonas, Jimenez, Mitroglou


The likely starting line-up will be the players in bold, although between samaris and fejsa really is a tough choice atm



FORÇA BENFICA!!!! :weee::weee::weee:

very well played 1st half...that goal at 15 secs from setubal alm: and thne after missing so many goals in that 1st half, the team seemed a bit tired, uninspired during the 2nd one...the 3rd goal wasnt happenning and at the 92nd min....the unbelievable happens....pizzi ( who had a very poor performance tonight) makes a back pass to ederson that....seriously, i stood up and shouted sooo loud....think i got the setubal forward confused right there

setubal's forward failed yes, but ederson was again a giant, that kid is amazing, and lindeloff was at the right place to save any possible rebounds

as expected, a tough game, but we won, we won and keep on fighting!!!

FORÇA BENFICA!!!!!!

ps. just read that miccoli was at the match tonight, thats so nice...miss him, great player, shame he left when he did, clearly one the fans loved and one that loved being here, you are always welcomed mickey mouse

Pizzi is absolutely exhausted. It was obvious with about 30 min left. Amazing to me he wasn't substituted. RV's substitutions, or lack thereof, almost coat us the championship.

Cheers to Miccoli. I'm a bit partial to diminutive players, insofar as physical stature is concerned

I don't what is going on with Pizzi, but he's mostly been tits on elbows for weeks. The first goal was just unbelievable. Both fullbacks were still mentally in the dressing room. This could have been a 4-3 match easily. Setubal had a couple of quality chances before Pizzi's gift. Ricardo made some sweet saves on Mitroglou and Jardel.

Exhaustion.

I'm not sure it's been weeks - he still shows ample moments of quality ball. But mental farts have been increasing, mostly in second half of games, a clear indication he's burned.

Guedes needs to see time.
