1 st half was a lot more competitive. The first 30 minutes was played at a very high tempo. The second round of substitutions slowed things down.
Clearly our preseason campaign is way ahead of Madrid's, but the game would have had more meaning if it included Madrid's really big guns. Benfica have to start inviting teams whose preseason schedule is more aligned with there's, otherwise you get these sort fo things which doesn't really serve to gauge properly.
