OMT: SPORTING - Benfica, Alvalade, 01.12.06, 21h30 CET - PL Round 12

OK, meninos e meninas it's time for the big one!

There is no logic, no form, no stats, no reason...nothing can predict what can happen when these two face each other.

SPORTING vs Benfica is for me THE game of football.

There is no other game that makes me feel more devastated when we lose and surely there is no better joy than winning this one.

There's so much history behind this game that I thought a good way to introduce it would be to show you some of the best moments of the recent past...of course the fans of our rivals might have other views on what moments should be remembered from the history of this derby but after all this is Sporting's forum so please allow me the pleasure

I think the game is at 21h30 CET (Central European Time) which means as you know one hour less in Lisbon, but I need to check.

edit: I've checked and it's confirmed. The kick-off is at 20h30 (Lisbon time).

Lions have a slight advantage in the derbies played in Alvalade
Benfica tries to avoid third consecutive defeat


Translated from Record
30.11.2006


Sporting's victory on the 3rd round of the 2005/06 League broke the deadlock on their favour in the "tight" history of the derbies in Alvalade against Benfica, who will try from their side, to avoid the third consecutive defeat at their rival's venue.

If in the two previous seasons Benfica reached Alvalade with a very slight supremacy over Sporting, that scenario was turned because of Liedson, a forward that has been the great protagonist of the last confrontations with the "reds".

Two seasons ago, "O Levezinho" scored a brace on the win against Benfica (2-1) and on the last season he scored the goal that assured the same result, reinforcing the condition of main "butcher" of the Luz club in the most recent derbies between the two historical clubs from Lisbon.

Just before the 73rd match in Alvalade, the fourth at the new Sporting stadium, the hosts "win" in the history of results, with 29 games won, against 28 of Benfica, and also in goals, with 112 scored against 106 allowed.

In spite of the Lions' advantage, the numbers prove that the "home factor" hasn't been relevant in Sporting's receptions of Benfica, that gave origin, for example, to two of the most unforgettable games in the history of the competition: nobody will ever forget the 7-1 of 1986/87, in Manuel Fernandes' afternoon (4 goals), or the 3-6 of 1993/94, in the evening of João Pinto (3 goals).

These are also two good examples of the absence of logic in the derbies in Alvalade, because in 1986/87 Benfica was champion with only one defeat, and in 1993/94 everything pointed at Sporting would win and grab a title that was escaping from them since 1981/82.

These were not, however, the only unbalanced scores, as the Lions had two other massive victories - 6-1 (1946/47) and 5-1 (1948/49) - and the Eagles already won in three other times by 3 goals - 4-1 in 1936/37, 1941/42 and 1997/98.

The recent history already shows two matches that were famous for the fact that Benfica delayed Sporting's title, by beating them 1-0 in 1999/2000, with a goal by the Egyptian Sabry, and by drawing 1-1 in 2001/02, in a game in which the Lithuanian Jankauskas put the visitors in front and that the Brazilian Jardel leveled on added time.

In spite of the fact that many scores escaped from the predictions, the majority of them contributed to the reigning balance: 13 wins to Sporting and 12 to Benfica by the minimum margin of one goal and still 15 draws, on a total of 40 games (55.5%).

In the last 10 years there is an equality of five wins for each side and only one draw (1-1), that one of 2001/02 with goals of Jardel and Jankauskas.

The best of the decade:
Liedson scored more against Benfica in Alvalade than Acosta or Jardel


by João Pedro Abecassis
Translated from Record
29.11.2006


Liedson is currently on his fourth season in Portugal but he is already one of the Lions that made history in the classic between the two eternal rivals. In the last ten years and in games against Benfica played in Alvalade, the Brazilian scored three times and acquired the status of best scorer ahead of names such as Mário Jardel or Alberto Acosta.

The Brazilian has, besides, a tendency to score against Benfica. In such a way that the rival from Segunda Circular is even the biggest victim of Liedson since he arrived in Portugal a bit more than three years ago. The striker scored nothing short than 6 goals against the "reds" in official matches.

It is when you win that you show who are those that have fair play, class and simply know that this is nothing but a game.

Fortunately since I started posting regularly in XT (more or less one year after I signed up), Sporting won categorically all the 3 games against Benfica: 2-1 in Alvalade and 3-1 in Luz for the League and 3-0 in the Torneio do Guadiana in the Algarve. In all those cases I showed the maximum respect towards Benfica and avoided any kind of taunting that could be interpretated as arrogance and lack of respect towards our opponent.
That simply happened because as I've said before in this same thread I do respect Benfica and all their fans that show respect towards my club.

For those "fans" like Flo or others similar like him I just wish that next time their club is beaten by mine they pay attention to the way we behave as winners and then realise how good it is to be respected.
