If someone wants, Benfica against Porto right now...

Hard to decide whether or not I want Benfica to win today. Them winning would seal them the title and they could still be a little hungover for the final but it could also mean them playing more relaxed after winning one trophy already. Porto winning could either depress them or drive them on to do better on Wednesday.

A draw it is, then.

Would it be wrong to hope for a couple of minor knocks to Benifca players to even things up as we lost Eden today? :halo:

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you possibly the greatest gif on the internet...

"Everyone questioned me why Chelsea, this is my answer.” — Eden Hazard

For a few seconds I was thinking that Ramires could be used as a winger instead of Hazard. However, he will be used in the midfield as Luiz will surely play as CB with Ivanovic. Moses it is then. Still, Hazard would be such an asset.

oh great not this bunch again. Can't wait for their play acting and conning of the officials and Cardozo going down like a ton of bricks at every opportunity. One of my least favourite teams in Europe with a squad full of bellends.

Isn't this the team with that arse hole as a manager? Who we played last season in the Champions League, he's called Jesus something

Either way what a fucking tosser that guy was, couldn't agree more, team full of bell ends.

What's wrong with Hazard

Closing moments of the game, tweaked his hamstring and had to come off. Shame really cuz that pretty much rules him out for Wednesdays EL Final, even though it didnt look to be a full tear.

I don't usually watch the Portuguese league and I've never really paid close attention to Benfica. I already knew that their defense was not that good, but from this Porto game, they look terrible in the air. haven't been able to deal properly with anything that has come into their box.

Bertrand for Hazard

we've never lost a European final with Bertrand playing

we have Ramires available this time! no need for Bertrand!

Sadly, we don't any real physical threat and presence upfront. Can look to target them from set pieces though.

But we should look to take advantage of corners.

Dont be so naive, they are with their heads in Amsterdam and not in the Portuguese League!

All Porto can do is level their points and UEL is a very big trophy for Portuguese fans (specially after Porto won it a couple of years ago). I bet they are thinking about another shade of blue...

Benfica is a great team, better than Villa or any other team we faced throughout the campaign to the final. They will play much better than today and we have to be careful. We should still be able to win, even without Hazard, but Moses, Torres and our pivot will have to be focused 100% of the time. Mata, Oscar, Ramires, Dave, Luiz, Ashley and Cech must all lead the team and play at their full potential. We need to take our chances, conterting our chances will be crucial, since I dont believe we will have that many chances. We cant let this be another Atletico nor another Corinthians!

We have the chance to win Europa League for the first time, lets have some respect and not dismiss their chances...

I did say we can target them on set pieces...

I thought you meant we don't have any real physical threat presence that we can target in set pieces.

This is as big a match for them, if not bigger. If Porto score one more and win they will go top with only one match to play.
