First official game of the season tomorrow as we travel to tiny Mata Real to face Pacos Ferreira. Always a tough game in their stadium.
We beat them 2-0 last week to win the Portuguese Super Cup, but I expect a tougher game tomorrow with the season kicking off.
Jesualdo has named the squad for the game.
GK: Helton, Beto
DF: Jorge Fucile, Nuno Andre Coelho, Rolando, Bruno Alves, Alvaro Pereira
MF: Fernando, Raul Meireles, Fernando Belluschi, Tomas Costa, Fredy Guarin, Diego Valeri
FW: Mariano Gonzalez, Ernesto Farias, Silvestre Varela, HULK, Radamel Falcao
Cristian Rodriguez and Orlando Sa are still injured. The rest... Nuno Espirito Santo, Cristian Sapunaru, Miguel Lopes, Maicon, Nelson Benitez, and Sebastian Prediger were not called.
A VENCER DESDE 1893
Oh lampião, levaste 5 no Dragão, nunca te esquecerás desta grande humilhação!
