In this episode....

We open up the pod by discussing Benfica's first game of this year's Portuguese Cup. The team made it's way up north by train, and to a lot fans' surprise the majority of the players on the game roster were B teamers. We break down the game, talk about some of the players that stood out, and look ahead to next round, which will be at home against Sporting.

Next up, we turned our attention to Benfica's matchday 3 of the Champions League. A decisive game, contrary to what JJ may say, where Benfica needed to get the 3 points. A horrible sub par first half, and a water logged pitch in the second half, ended up complicating things for Benfica, who was only able to get a point from the fixture, and will now need to get the 3 points in Greece. We breakdown tactics, we talk a little more about JJ, and we look ahead to what needs to be done in order to get to the next round. Which if Benfica continues to play they have, doesn't look too much of a reality.

Lastly, we breakdown this weekend's game against Nacional da Madeira. The Alvi-Negros are one point behind Benfica, and after what we have seen from Benfica this season it will turn out to be another hard game. Benfica will need to take advantage of the fixture however, as Sporting will travel to porto to face the dragays, in a game where at least one of them will give up points.

Thanks for checking us out.
