Benfica de Macau

Thought this was interesting. On the 21st August, earlier this month, Benfica de Macau recorded a 2-1 victory against Rovers FC of Guam, in the AFC Cup play off qualifier. It was the first victory ever for a Macanese club in AFC competition.

Two days later they were defeated 2-1 by Kyrgyz side Dordoi Bishkek, but still._.congrats to them.

On their wiki page it says they're coached by Paolo Bento

found this: "Guam, East Timor, Cambodia, Chinese Taipei and Brunei were allocated one qualifying round slot, but did not enter a team."

which is strange given that Guam actually had that Rovers team losing against Benfica Macau

just booked my flight to Macau. will be there 2nd half of January for a week. no infos on schedule for Liga de Elite de Macau () but based on schedules from previous years, seasons there usually start around Janeiro 15 so I have a fair chance to see a Benfica match. if I'm super lucky the "derby" Benfica vs Sporting

Largo do Leal Senado who got its name from the loyalty to Portugal, by refusing any Spanish authorities 1580 to 1640



his divine excellence of poetry himself resided in this very place where that statue stands
