We are facing Rio Ave in 30m , and i'm expecting a hard game, as usuallly happens with them

Winning is a must in order to secure the 1st place, and hopefully we will keep improving in terms of the quality displayed.
Last match against Portimonense on wednesday was promising, the question is can we keep that level and improve on it....i hope so, this season has been way too unstable in that regard




Coach: Bruno Lage

Players called:

Goalies: Odysseas Vlachodimos

Defenders:Jardel, Ferro, André Almeida,Rúben Dias,Grimaldo, Tomás Tavares, Nuno Tavares

Midfielders: Taarabt, Samaris, Pizzi, Gabriel, Gedson, Florentino, Cervi , Chiquinho

Forwards: Seferovic, Vinicius, Jota


humm raul de tomas not even called...talk about all the money we spent on that one...(clinical report doesnt mention any injury so looks like it is a choice from the coach)

Rafa remains injured



FORÇA BENFICA!!!:wee::wee::wee:

And we have starting line ups:

bench: zlobin , jardel, tomás tavares, taarabt, joão filipe, Seferovic , gedson

After Vinicius performance against Portimonense it was very likely to see him start, good one. Chiquinho had a good game too so...looking promising :D



RIO AVE: Kieszek; Monte, Borekovic, Aderlan, Matheus Reis; Nuno Santos, Tarantini, Filipe Augusto, Jambor, Gabrielzinho; Taremi

bench: Paulo Vitor,Diego Lopes,Pedro Amaral,Messias,Carlos Mané,Lucas Piazon, Ronan

we won 2-0 :D and played fairly well, Rio Ave plays an entertaining football but thankfully today they were not inspired upfront

ruben dias and pizzi scoring, looks like nowadays our defenders play the role of strikers:D

Bruno Lage was straightforward at the press conference when asked why de tomas watched the game from the stands, it was his choice because the player's performance isnt good enough atm

Simple and to the point, no need for dramas nor taboos
