Was a good game this evening in Lisbon. Very good 75 minutes for the home team and in the end Benfica relaxed a bit and, Lyon almost scored the equalizer.
Craig Thomson began to show his authority early in the game, catching the maliciousness among players with yellow cards. Just one problem with Diakhaté. The Lyon player did a lot of nasty fouls and always Thomson was compliant.
Without British punctuality
yes...that's true. The ref's team was the last to return from the half-time break. Both teams waited a bit for the 3rd team to come to the pitch.
