Champions Group Stage Game #2 – Away vs Benfica – I am starting Moreira as Rico wasn’t registered. I begin defensively. We tied them 1-1 away last time, and I’d be happy to do so again this year!
17th minute they foul Besnard in the box and Solanke….sinks the PK! That;s his 50th goal for Bordeaux
Besnard to Solanke, goal,. 26th minute…
And we are up 2-0! I doubt that score lasts with Moreira in GK.
Them in the 53rd off a corner kick
Solanke sinks a second PK in the 85th minute. I’ll take it. (They have gotten 5 cards this game to our 0)
We hold and win 3-1. MOM is Solanke’s hattrick. Solanke just plays up. There is a reason he is still on my team…
We make 1.5 mill
Marchi wants an increased deal and I offer him one that increases his salary from 5.5 k to 22.5/k but remains hot prospect.
