Teams: SPORTING CP & Portugal NT
Well, I said this was going to be a tight one and indeed it was. A huge battle in the midfield with almost no space nor time to play the ball, something that is forcing us to play direct but is also forcing Benfica to practically only defend. JJ came here to get a draw, there is no doubt about it. No goal chances so far but we had the upper hand with more shots, more corners, more time playing in their midfield but no real danger so far.
William is ruling that midfield like a boss but we need either Nani or Carrillo to go past one of those turtles as they are there for the taking.
