Been watching them play this season... thier offence can cause you loads of problems.. they're playing really nice football.

I won't be able to watch this game, but take a close eye on Kevin De Bruyne(he's a blond 18 year old attacking midfielder, prolly play on the leftside - so you better not play that horrible RB of yours, he's a real gem of a player with an amazing right foot shot), and Elyaniv Barda(he's playing a bit behind thier strikers) for me ok? I wanna know how they did against you guys.

Will be intresting though, they're in thier best form on thier life right now.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

Yeah, that De Bruyne guy is the one the Portuguese papers are saying will cause a threat.

You think they'll beat us?

Don't know if they'll beat you, I mean your clearly favotires and should win.

But they're not at all a walk in the park, atleast from how they've been playing so far.. they come in great form, got confidence and have great attacking abilitys.

If you'll come with a 'oh we'll beat them no problem' approach you might be suprised..but all in all, I see you passing them.. I mean you have a fantastic attacking powers aswell, much more then they can handle.

It will be a fun game to watch for sure.

Sad news...

Hulk's niece drowned and died in a pool in Brazil this morning. Terrible tragedy, my stomach turned when I read it. It happens, but never easier to read or find out about. My thoughts and prayers go to Hulk, his sister and her family for this awful loss.

As a result, Hulk has flown back to Brazil from Belgium and will not be playing today. I guess it's a good thing AVB brought 19 players with him so we'll still have 7 substitutes. Young Ukra takes his place in the starting XI, direct swap at RW.

The line-up that kicks off in half an hour:

Helton
Sapunaru - Rolando - Maicon - A.Pereira
Fernando
F.Belluschi - J.Moutinho
Ukra - Falcao - Varela

Bench: Beto, Sereno, Miguel Lopes, Souza, Castro, Ruben Micael, Walter

FORCA PORTO!

Very sorry to hear that. Hope he'll recover from it soon.

Golo Falcao, from a PK.

I love Falcao, the tribute to Hulk there.

I have to say portos scouts have done another summer of good work here.

Souza looks a good purchase and the singings of walter and james rodriguez will prove themselves in the future, two of the best players in south america last season(walter was clinical until his serious injury)

Ruben coming back is like another signing.

Alot of options in midfield and attack, alot of versatlity.

Only problem was the defense in the second half, 3 big saves by helton due to lapses by alveiro periera.

3-0 FT... awesome goals from Souza(what a buy!) and Belluschi(also awesome all preseason).

Three wins in our first three official games, all three of them different competitions, and yet to concede a goal. Helton is a ****ing champ.

Excellent victory, barring a miracle we're clear through to the group stages. Mind you, I'll always take the league more serious than this competition, it's no Champions League.

GENK are shit, btw. Overrated attack.

Only catched the penalty didnt watch the game.

But they had a bad day I guess - overated attack is also an option as I don't rate the Belgium league that high... assuming my guys both sucked if thats the case btw?

And could you shed some light on Souza btw Josh? no idea who that is.. sounds like he's a great player... my Porto wining the title bet looks good I guess

He's a 21 year old, box-to-box, Brazilian midfielder. We purchased 75% of his transfer rights for 3.5m Euro from Vasco da Gama this summer. He was a member of the Brazil U-20 team.

Very strong physical attributes; he runs non-stop, is tall and strong, physical player, powerful shot. His technical skills are also evident, he can move the ball around quick and spring himself into those goal scoring positions.

I've been really impressed with him so far, our midfield options look excellent. Joao Moutinho, Ruben Micael, Belluschi, Souza, Fernando, Guarin, Castro. Tons of depth, lots of players with different characteristics. Technique and creativity in Moutinho/Micael/Belluschi, physical box-to-box guys in Souza/Guarin, and then combative DMs like Fernando and Castro. Raul Meireles needs to be sold ASAP. p

There's our first goal conceded this season. Nicely played ball into the box, Rolando didn't close down his player in time.

Down 0-1 in the 22nd minute, up 3-1 on aggregate.

Penalty for us.

Hulk in on the keeper, puts it past him, and is taken out at the legs. Clear PK.

Their keeper makes a great save to stop Hulk's PK! Blasted to the bottom right corner, keeper went the right way and defended well.

1-1 at half-time.

The Belgian side started well, scoring the first goal off a good play into the box. Then we took control and created several chances. Hulk missed a PK, but then redeemed himself with a beautiful free-kick goal from well outside. Falcao, Ruben Micael, and Hulk again missed chances after our goal.

Hope to see Walter and Castro get some minutes in the second half.
