Game taking place at the Estadio do Ladrao In Porto




Not much to say, the two best teams tied for first.
They're very strong at home, I just hope JJ plays with one forward and goes strong in the midfield and hope for a good results for us as a win would be huge.

Good even first 20 minutes or so for Benfica, then Porto took over.

Will be interesting to see if Saviola comes in to start the second half.

For that someone has to leave from the midfield, I'd rather just tell Aimar to come back a bit more and help the mid. Woudn't touch the team if it was me but Witzel and Javi have to help a bit more.

Aimar is a nonfacor so far, you guys are loosing the midfield battle in a pretty onesided way to Porto's trio.

Your problem is Porto is killing you on the wings forcing Nolito and Gaitan to drop deep to help out, but when you win the ball you have almost no-one to hold it a bit or move forward with - and Porto are all over you once they loose the ball.

You also have no throughball target with Cardozo so it pretty much makes you predictable/uneffective.

Luisao is playing fantastic so far for you though.
