Raul Meireles, Bruno Alves, Next FC Porto game Benfica v. FC Porto

FC Porto won their first game 2-0 of the season. Excellent start already has 3 points. This weekend, Porto goes to the Da Luz for Benfica v. FC Porto. What a game!!! It's just the second week of the Portuguese League and already a big game.

On Wednesday, August 27, 2008 Mariano Gonzalez (FC Porto Argentinean forward) said,

"I don't know if Benfica is stronger, we'll see that soon. Sincerely, I haven't been paying attention to Benfica. I only know that FC Portos is stronger than last season. Our group is motivated. After the victory [over Belenenses] last weekend."

About who the favorite is: "It's a clássico between two great teams and there are no favorites. It will be a great game."

Fc Porto in the table (Portuguese League, Liga Sagres 2008-2009). This win got them to 3rd place. Thank goodness for their sake Benfica drew their last game 1-1. I wonder what small team will be the surprise this season. Last season it was V. Guimaraes. Now they're in the Champions League qualifying rounds instead of Benfica.

Two big teams facing each other so soon. What a test for Quique. Can he win at home against the Champions and get 3 points?
