No they aren't. Their coach got fired. They were doing well, but not up to their standards that why their coach was fired.

Familiar faces regain control
Monday, 7 February 2005
By Onofre Costa

FC Porto and SL Benfica capitalised on defeats incurred by SC Braga and Sporting CP to climb to the SuperLiga summit.

Debut delight
José Couceiro got his coaching career at Porto off to a winning start as the title holders raced to an early lead against GD Estoril Praia. José Bosingwa and Ricardo Quaresma both scored in the first quarter of the match and although Fellahi reduced the deficit from the penalty spot eight minutes before half-time, the league strugglers could not deny Couceiro.

Simão double
The 2-1 win took the European champions to the top of the league on 37 points, where they were joined by Benfica, who defeated A. Académica de Coimbra 3-0 at the Estádio da Luz. Geovanni broke the deadlock with a header on 32 minutes and Simão Sabrosa took his season's tally to 13 with goals at the start and end of the second period to keep Académica rooted to the foot of the table.

The coach is probably resting Diego for our match. We should aim for a win in this match and nothing less. If we beat them on their home turf, life will be much easier on ours.

Estádio do Dragão is an imposing stadium but Porto didn't impress me in the group stage. Chelsea had them out of the Champions League but slipped up and let them back in the game. Carlos Alberto came on as a sub and got them back into the game with some fantastic, creative play in midfield. He was IMO their best player but he has since been sold.

Not to sound arrogant but we out class Porto in every department. Unless Diego, Costinha and Maniche play out of this world and our midfield fails to show up we should win both legs.
