Episode 263 – Classico Woes, to UCL blows

On this week’s podcast… We look back at the Classico, discuss the low lights, and try to find a silver lining. We also discuss Varela’s metamorphosis, and Zivkovic’s place in Classico’s history. On the second half we put the last nail on Benfica’s Champions League coffin, and look ahead to Estoril, and December’s fixtures.

  1. I might be crazy, but I think Benfica should use a 352 formation because we have no fullbacks expect for Grimaldo. The problem is that we don’t have CBs too. This is the lineup I’d use.

    Svilar
    Dias (Lopez due to injury) – Luisao – Jardel
    Salvio – Krovinovic – Fesja – Pizzi – Grimaldo
    Jonas – Seferovic

    When injuried Digo Goncalves or Cervi can play for Grimaldo. Almeida should play DM or backup Salvio. To make this work we need to buy a CB in the transfer market.
