In this weeks pod, we get into Benfica's participation in the Polish Masters' tournament, where Benfica lost in the Final against PSV.

We discuss who played and who didn't, the two formations JJ has accustomed us to, as well as the lack of player rotation he has also accustomed us to.

Did Maxi pick up a red card to finally get some rest? Martins continues to shine, Djalo's  hair also, but that's the only shine coming from Djalo'.

29 days until the start of the season, and Melgarejo is our best left back.

Whether it's to find out why Rojo chose Benfica over Sporting, or if Kardec really learned anything from Neymar we got you covered.
