But I have never seen any over-confidence like this from them. After they made 2 great matches and Nuno Gomes scored a goal he won't score in his life anymore,

:rofl:

it wasn't the first time that Nuno Gomes scored great goals.

jealousy?

and what you wanted? we say we will lose for 2 or 3? you liking or not we have our chances.

Karagounis is recovered from injury and probably will play in Geovanni's place at the right.

probable line up:

Moreira
Nélson
Luisão
Anderson
Léo (could be Rocha due to Leo's height)
Petit
M Fernandes
Karagounis
Simão
Nuno Gomes
Miccoli

Man Utd really need a win, so it will be hard to get a good result. However, our players seem motivated now. Saying this, Benfica is prolly gonna lose, but there is also a fair chance of grabbing a draw.

Maybe 1-1 or 0-0, at least that's what I'm hoping for..

United will win 2-1 but Benfica will lead 1-0 at HT.

PS: why doesn't Ferguson start both Giggs and Park (he can play on the right as well can't he?)

--------------RVN------------
Giggs---Ronaldo---Smith---Park

I think it will be a tough game...Benfica could be very happy if they draw at Old Trafford.

I hope for a interesting Match!

Benfica, think @ the 1:1 by Costinha ^^

Never give up :jambo:

I want all portuguese teams to do well in europe and this game won't be an exception. Having said that, I don't believe Benfica will win this one. ManU are in a bad streak right now and that, against what is common belief, will play against the portuguese team.
There's a lot of pressure on ManU's shoulders to get a decent result and get back on track and I expect a lot of effort and focus from the red devils.
Benfica, however, are improving since the past couple of weeks and have a high level of self-confidence.

To be honest, it will all depend on how Benfica star players perform on the big european stage: if Simão acts like his usual self in important games he won't be seen with the ball tomorrow, and the same for Geovani, Nuno and Co. If they can cope with the pressure and stay focused they have a real chance of going home with points in the bag.

Besides, no matter what happens the team in red will lose. (H)

because the brilliant duo forget we have a player name giggs and a formation call 4-4-2 which we can play 2 wingers

Like always i´ll root for the portuguese teams in Europe. I don´t really know what to predict. Benfica is currently playing extremely well but that doesn´t really matter in european football, the standarts are way higher. On the other hand, this isn´t the Manchester United i used to watch in the past. They are currently experiencing a bad phase. Even so, we are talking about a Champions league match, so the circunstancies are different and anything can happen. Manchester United players are used to this kind of games, Benfica players in the recent past, have a hard time coping with the pressure of these games. I hope Benfica can get a draw at least.

i doubt our current heinzeless and nevilleless defence can resist benfica...

gonna be a tough one we might just nick it

How big is YOUR penis?
If Smith is put on the central defensive role again and Giggs doesn`t start then it`s gonna be another **** up for Man U. If we don`t have a midfield that can keep the ball or win the ball then sooner or later it will be a goal against us.
