Preseason 2012/13

This morning, the team departed for Prangins, Switzerland, where we will commence our preseason training this week(July 9 - July 15).

Our second game will be this Wednesday, July 11th, against Servette. A pretty decent warm-up match, much better than the warm-up game we won 8-0 against Valadares Gaia this past Saturday.

Here's our schedule so far for the preseason:

--

July 2: Medical examinations and start of training in Porto

July 7: Friendly vs. Valadares Gaia (7-0 win: Iturbe[2], Atsu, Kelvin, Janko, Lucho, Maicon)

July 9 - July 15: Preseason camp in Prangins, Switzerland

July 11: Friendly vs. Servette in Switzerland (2-0 win: Kleber[2])

July 14: Friendly vs. Evian in Switzerland (1-0 win: Maicon)

July 16: Travel back to Porto, Portugal

July 21: Trofeu Internacional Fatima Cidade da Paz vs. Celta de Vigo in Porto (3-0 win: Lucho, Maicon, Iturbe)

July 24: Travel to Sao Miguel, Portugal

July 25: Trofeu Pauleta vs. Santa Clara in Ponta Delgada (3-0 win: Lucho, Atsu, Castro)

July 27: Travel to Valencia, Spain

July 28: Friendly vs. Valencia in Valencia (1-1 [0-2 in PKs]: Lucho)

July 30: Travel back to Porto, Portugal

August 4: Presentation Game vs. Olympique Lyonnais in Porto

--

We then face Academica for the 2012 Portuguese Supercup on August 11th in the first official game.

Today we beat Servette, the 4th place team from the Swiss league, 2-0 today.

Decent warm up match. Both our goals came from Kleber. Nice to see him get off to a promising start in both of our first two games.

I didn't see the game, but here's the highlights from SportTV:

This Sagbo dude comes in lunging from behind on Otamendi, gets a yellow in the 16th minute. Taking it a bit too seriously, bro.

Edit: This is the clown.

0-0 at HT. Pretty boring stuff, let's hope to see Iturbe, Kelvin, Castro, and co. in the second half.

M'Barki on a mission to kill Iturbe.

That's what happens when you play French teams in pre-season. I remember last year when Marseille and Bordeaux played each other, they were on the verge of breaking each others legs and fought every four minutes

I think the only half time sub was Iturbe for Atsu.

Lining up like this now:

Fabiano
David - Maicon - Otamendi - Mangala
Mikel Agu
Moreira - Castro
Kelvin - Janko - Atsu

With Sereno, Addy, and Emidio all suffering knocks in training, they're not available for selection and Maicon/Otamendi/Mangala have to play 90 minutes.

Uh, I'm not really sure what happened, but Kleber is somehow back in the game and replaces Janko?

What are we playing here, basketball?

1-0 for us in the 86th minute.

Maicon, yes Maicon, scores from a direct free kick.

I've never even seen him take one for us in 3 years, and he curls it into the corner on his first attempt.
