So far the push up hasn't really resulted in a whole lot of good shots. Their counter is awful quick... they'll continue to count on that one critical mistake and wasted a good 4 on 2 opportunity.

A tired team will give more of those up in the second half. Gotta get a score early to avoid the likely scenario.

Yeah, if we score early they will try to get it back and open up, that's when we can score more.

0-0 at the Half, not much going on with Benfica keeping the ball and pushing and Braga not giving in, Braga's clearly showing that they're relying on the counter and attack and would be fine with just one point, not really what I expected from a title contender.
They never claimed to be title contenders and they didn't have a 5 points lead over the 2nd placed team nor they rented Marquês de Pombal in January. Besides, that's their way of playing, nothing surprising about it. The fact is that their goal stats in the league (53-19) is practically the same as Benfica's (54-20) and they have 2 points more than your club. It looks like they are better at playing on the counter than the imaginary Carrega Benfica style. :shades:

If you want to make claim to be a true TROLL then you must learn what a counter is, Benfica IS NOT a counter team :pat:
