    Since we are talking about Champions League now

    Aimar, Javi Garcia, Witsel, Gaitan, Luisau, Garray, Maxi, Bruno, Nolito, Salvio, Yannick Djalo and Rodrigo are important to the team, and we should not risk loosing any of them
    its good we have Ola john, Perez, Carlos Martins and Matic as subs.

    We need a good LB, Melgarejo isn't that bad but he is not experienced LB yet. I wish Capdevila or even Emerson were there at least as subs to a good LB.

    and seriously, Javi MUST stay, he is the most experienced player along with Aimar, and both are equally important.

    God help us, I don't want to see our team loosing.

    1 hour until the draw! Drawing Arsenal would be amazing! AC Milan without Ibra, Silva and Cassano wouldn't be bad either.

    Just no Dortmond and Benfica should be okay, though going to Russia won't be easy.

    Dear S.L Benfica lovely fans.

    Please be optimistic and relax.

    Today I was thinking about my lovely team and feeling bad about whats happing.

    Guess what!! I believe in the player AND the cough Jorge Jesus.

    let me show you how I got so optimistic.

    Starting with our Offense (Attackers)

    Oscar Cardozo : I know most of us wanted him to leave (including me), but let us face the fact>> He is #1 Scorer last season with 21 Goals

    Lima: He is #2 Scorer with 20 goals

    Rodrigo: He is a good player who scored 3 goals in 3 matches this season and scored 9 goals last season

    Guys we have the best 2 scorers in Liga Zon Sagres and another good attacker



    Now lets go to our Midfield players

    Eduarso Salvio: We all wanted to see him back to benfica, we finally have him

    Pablo Aimar: One of the best Play Makers in the world IMO I love him, he plays well especially against good teams (watch Benfica vs Chelsea)

    Nico Gaitan: He is a good player, wanted by big teams like Manchester United

    Ola John: haven't seen him playing any official match but I like his way of playing and its just like how Jesus like to play ( its weird that he never let him play) but at least we have a substitute

    Carlos Martins: Fantastic crossing ability (watch Real Madrid vs Benfica)

    Bruno Cezar: good player, knows his teammates very well.

    Nolito: Good LM, attacks very well.

    Enzo Perez : I liked his goal against Madrid, but I think he is our worst player IMO

    Matic: Our only CDM hope, not bad


    Our defense

    Luisao: He's been with us for long time now, good header.

    Maxi: some times he is better than any attacker I like him.

    Garay: one of the best

    Melgarejo: Since he like attacking, he will be another Maxi

    Jardal: good sub


    Now lets remember the game against Chelsea last year. Javi played CB and Witsel RB

    We did had a lot of attacks on Arturs goal, but we also attacked them very well and almost won with injured missing players and a really really bad referee.

    Since that match, I really start believing in Jorge Jesus ( Most of you will have the opposite opinion)

    I wrote all of this because I know how all of you feel.

    Thanks for reading, and sorry for my bad writing.
