We played and beat Maritimo at the Catedral Da Luz in a very high octane game.

This game was marked by Maritimo who scored at the 77th minute by Djalma and did everything to kill time after, you couldn't look at a Maritimo player the wrong way because it was sure he would drop and waste time.

Salvio made it 1-1 at the 82nd minute, Maritimo players kept dropping like flies to kill time, their coach Pedro Martins was happy with the 1 point and ordered everyone to play back.

We put the ball in the net at the 91st minute but illegally, finally get a clean shot outside the box, Coentrao sinks it in the back of Marcelo's net with his right foot. The ref blows the whistle right after and Maritimo players argued and there were red cards shown. I've always wanted to watch a game where a team does everything to waste time, goes ahead and wastes more time in a ridiculous fashion then gets beat and the ref blows the whistle right after. Maritimo deserved to lose in the last second for playing this way.

We ended up the game with a crazy attacking formation:

Roberto
Maxi-Luisao-Jardel-Fabio Coentrao
Carlos Martins(subbed Javi)
Salvio-Saviola(Dropped to Aimar's Spot) Jara (In for Aimar,Gaitan)
Kardec(in For Gaitan, Saviola spot) Cardozo



Man of the Match has to be Maritimo's keeper who put on a show.

And that's 17 in a row folks...

Didn't watch the game, but Salvio is in unstopable scoring form... what a dramatic win, literally in the last seconds of the game - amazing shot from Coentrao:thumbsup:

Crazy game. I did have a feeling Benfica would go on and win the game despite Maritimo's late goal. Salvio took his really well, although it has to be a goal on that. I thought Luisão had fulfilled the comeback..but then the referee gives a freekick for a foul..but it would be SLB's night as Coentrão scored the winner with so little time left on the clock. Brilliant fightback by Benfica and this is one of these trademark wins which hands you the title..such a shame you guys started so badly this season.

Crazy game,could had been 4 or 5-0 and we won it five secs from the end.:thumbsup:

The team suffer a lit bit phisicaly from 65 min to 80 but still had heart to get the win.:happy:

Remind me of Naval game last season.

Don't have much to say aside from what everybody else wrote; crazy game. My dad, the benfiquista that he is, was having panic attacks all game. Unreal finish there.

Well done.

I think JJ was pissed at the ball that was called back in injury time and the Martimo players pissed at the fact that the ref didn't let them have a single play after the goal, all dumb shit really.

Gotta love how Maritimo players were dropping like flies at first but then didn't want to waste any time after we scored the second goal :howler:, I kinda almost wish we played another 2 minutes so that we could do to them what they did to use :howler:

The offensive football in the last couple of games has been a joy to watch, to think that we finished the game with Carlos Martins at DM, Saviola at AM, Jara on the wing, Kardec and Cardozo at strikers and still with Salvio says something.

Typical bullshit....We tie the match and Maritimo players all of a sudden have an assasin in the stands and are getting shot up.

They can suck it! Their goalie saved their bacon on Sunday. We deserved the 3 points. :thumbsup:

What? No Nacional v Sporting thread in the other joint? ;) :D
