Huge game, we win and we are through. Making it through the group stage could give us the needed funds for January transfer window.

Nice to see 5 Portuguese players starting for Benfica. Not to mention that two of them are only 18 years old.

Wow cant believe it 2-0. Looked offside but close. Our defensive marking has been terrible. We are going the same path as Porto yesterday Im afraid

Well we managed to come back from a 2-0 deficit. Good effort. We never should have found ourselves down that way to this team but credit for coming back and getting an important point. We are now 6 points ahead of Galatasary

Nice fight back. You learn a lot about a team in how it handles adversity. Dropped a physical match on the weekend and down a pair of goals in the first half hour, but got a point. :thmbup:

Astana does a good job of pressing and using the field turf to their advantage. SLB eventually adjusted and the match leveled out. Would have been nice to clinch qualification, but I think it will happen later today.

some very painful moments in that 1st half:D but the team nevre gave back, those players wanted to make sure they would bring a positive result today...and they did :proud: !!! and we are past the group stage..been a long time :wee:

when i saw those 2 goals out of nowhere i coudnt believe, but with all its difficulties the players didnt give up, they showed they were there to give their best, and some did put a great effort...guedes once more was massive, renato sanches has still a looot to grow and improve, but once again he shows quality, jimenez very active, jonas never giving up

im very proud of our boys, they werent brilliant in terms of play, but giants in their want to get a result, and coming back from 2-0, away, after the game agaisnt sporting, shows character :star:

lets keep it up...game by game....

we need this money very much, to make sure the 2 or 3 players we need come in january

astana is not a big name team, but they managed to not lose a single game at home, big up to them, never defensive, always looking for their chances, made for a very entertaining game in that sense, very balanced


and its so good to see so much portuguese youth playing there...lets groom them, they have their chance, and they better grab it, sure are proving themselves , keep it up kids:)
