2011/12 FC Porto domestic thread (league + cups)

The season kicks off for us today with the Portuguese Supercup, formally known as Supertaca Candido de Oliveira.

This game pits last year's league winners against last year's Taca de Portugal winners. As we won both competitions, we will face Vitoria Guimaraes who we beat 6-2 to win the Taca de Portugal.

Falcao and Guarin enter the squad despite only having three days of training since returning from post-Copa America vacation. However, neither of them are expected to start, but will be available on the bench.

Fernando is not included which has increased speculation about an expected transfer.

Alvaro Pereira and Cristian Rodriguez arrive tomorrow since their post Copa America vacation, while we have a bunch of youngsters at the U-20 World Cup.

Here's the squad called:

GK: Helton, Rafael Bracalli

DF: Cristian Sapunaru, Rolando, Maicon, Nicolas Otamendi, Sereno, Jorge Fucile

MF: Fernando Belluschi, Souza, Fredy Guarin, Joao Moutinho, Ruben Micael

FW: Djalma, Hulk, Falcao, Kleber, Silvestre Varela

--

Injured: Emidio Rafael

International duty: James Rodriguez, Alex Sandro, Juan Iturbe, Danilo(won't arrive until January), Tiago Ferreira

Vacation(post Copa America): Alvaro Pereira, Cristian Rodriguez

Not Called: Walter, Kelvin, Christian Atsu, Andre Castro, Fernando, Kadu, Beto

Where did I say I care so much about this game?

It's our first official game, so I'll post about a Porto match like I always do.

Worry about Sporting winning a game this year.

Starting XI with the only slight surprise being Maicon starting ahead of Otamendi. The Brazilian is there for his aerial presence.

Helton

Sapunaru - Rolando - Maicon - Fucile

Souza
Ruben Micael - Joao Moutinho

Hulk - Kleber - Varela

Bench: Falcao, Djalma, Belluschi, Guarin, Sereno, Otamendi, Bracalli

Josh, I've heard that Tiago Ferreira already signed with Inter. Do you know something about it?

1-0 in the 3rd minute.

Moutinho backheels Hulk in, who sends a rabona cross into the box where Rolando heads it away.

Good start!

Ridicolous assist, One wonders why Vitória were 5-on-6 in the penalty area though.

Horrendous defending.

Nah, I usually catch games involving Benfica, Porto and Sporting in Portugal. People from Atlético are at the game though.

Atlético are playing Vitória in the Europa League Qualifiers so I want to get a glimpse of them considering they've made so many changes in the summer, transferwise.

Anderson looked seriously injured there for a second.

Ex-Porto player Joao Paulo ties it up 1-1 off a corner kick.

Edit: Might have been Toscano actually.

Vitória have woken up. Good goal off the corner, great connection by João Paulo. The delivery was also very good.

Your defense is looking really nice.

Any time we touch a guy its a foul. Even when we don't, like Kleber just now, its still called as a foul.
