On this week’s podcast…. We look back a Covid stricken Benfica, and our matches against Braga in the semifinals of the League Cup, and another league game in which we find a way to lose points. Covid has hit the team hard, but can Covid be an excuse for a Braga game which we could have won, and a Nacional game where we played for 15 minutes?

Episode 391 – Bye 2020

On the last podcast of 2020… We look back at the Super Cup game against porto, we discuss attitude, grit, commitment, all of which were probably part of Luisao’s talk to the team at the end of the game.

Happy New Year...

The last recap was of the Portuguese League Cup against Guimaraes for a spot in the competition’s final four, where Benfica struggled to be efficient in front of goal but were able to...
