Episode 222 - Castaway in Madeira and the Lifeline from Ukraine

7Dec

In this week's episode...

 

After a 4 week absence we return to recap Benfica's last two games. After the first loss of the season in the Madeira island at the hands of Maritimo, we discuss what this loss at this particular time of the season will do for Benfica.

Next up, we discuss Benfica's loss to Napoli in matchday 6, a loss that would have seen Benfica go out of the competition were it not for the Kiev win against Besitkas. We wonder if the news from Kiev winning by 4 at half time conditioned a poor performance by Benfica in the second half.

Lastly, we look ahead to the derby against SPorting in a game that is important, but that by no means decisive to the title race. We finish up by answering some twitter questions.
