    We have shown we CANNOT sit back and defend this lead. We have to keep pressing them to get a third.

    Sitting back would be just inviting them onto us.

    lol benfica using the westbrook defense against Esgaio - let him dribble in the box all he wants and give him a free shot to the sky, quickest way to get the ball back

    We held on, but an away goal is a bit painful to give up.

    But glad we got the win to take to the next leg

    ******** how I wish that Nuno Santos goal wasn’t called off. That was Puskas worthy

    Win against our rivals is always great and I believe we can get to the final. They also have an away game at Porto in 3 days.

    But my prediction almost came true, it feels like we could have had a more comfortable win.

    Benfica strong start, they look motivated and we're against the ropes. The 3 creative players behind the striker are causing all sorts of problems and they could have scored

    0-0 half time. That wasn't pretty. Continue to insist with the likes of Esgaio and Paulinho also useless today.

    What a goal!! What a way to start the 2nd half. Hjulmand with the finesse outside the box. Assisted by Gyokeres and started by Geny who did more in 2 minutes than Esgaio

    It's all happening now

    Otamendi ties it right after, and now Paulinho scores again and restores our 2 goal advantage

    Watched it on a phone propped up against a glass on a dodgey stream in the pub, but convinced my two mates why we're the good guys and we all ********ing loved it.

    Perfect Easter :)
