Benfica takes the lead off an early goal from Enzo Perez. Salvio slipped the ball through Paços defense allowing Enzo to punch it in.

Benfica are clearly well in control of the match and are just lacking the final killer touch to put Paços away. The defense is hardly being tested thus far in this first half.

Half-time: SL Benfica 1-0 Paços de Ferreira
Goals: Enzo Perez '7

Benfica are in control; however, a second goal is desperately needed to put away one of the better sides the league has this season. One has to mention that Paços are clearly missing the quality Antunes had brought to their left flank this season; given the tempo the match has been played at thus far and with Benfica's dominance, I expect Benfica to come out rather aggressively at the start of the second half and score possibly another 2 goals.

Oscar Cardozo doubles Benfica's lead within 2 minutes after the start of the half. Carlos Martins delivered a corner in which was struck by Luisao who nearly put it in himself not for a last gasp touch by Cassio; however, Cardozo is there to clean it up and notch yet another goal.

Benfica grabbed the corner after Cardozo was denied by Cassio on a Benfica attack led by Salvio and Martins.

was just about to say that cardozo had been terrible during the 1st half (which he was), missing 2 golden opportunities, and he scores:D

salvio's assist for the 1st goal was class :cool:


overall , entertaining game so far , with benfica on the attack and paços with a few dangerous attacks ( namely 2 wrongly called offsides)

Paços now looking to calm the tempo of the match and are showing some good possession...However, they've ended it once again with a poorly delivered cross resulting in a goal kick.

He's always been that sort of player, hasn't he? His positioning is at times poor and he'll give up possession; however, then he'll come up with some magic.
