Afternoon all, and welcome to O Clássico!
Primeira Liga / Matchday 7
Estádio da Luz / 07.10.2018
Right, that's us - see you soon!
Benfica have beaten Porto for the first time in nearly four years, and in so doing go above them and Braga to the top of the league. That was one of the most horrendous games of anything that you'll ever see, but they won't care and why should they? Porto, though, were abysmal and should be contemplating that for the next few days.
Full-time: Benfica 1-0 Porto
Porto win a free-kick on the left - this will be it - and it's curled into the box, where Militao heads over!
watching the goal again, it's impossible to overstate how good Pizzi's assist was.
No one's bothered to tell us how long is left, but Samaris has replaced Seferovic.
Herrera is looking to get something going only to suffer what Trevor Brooking would call "a bit of a bobbler," and he shanks the ball into touch.
Porto have woken up! They win a free0kick out on the right and Sergio curls in hard to the far post, where Militao is up ... but he can only head high.
Sergio tries a volley when a clearance falls onto his laces, and when it's blokced, Sergio picks up the loose ball on the left of the box He shimmies inside and spanks a curler just wide of the far post.
RED CARD! Lema, who was booked in the first half, swings a boot as Andre Pereira breaks past him onto the ball. He catches him, but not hard - Pereira was asking for the ref before he'd even hit the ground - and the ref should really have let it slide, given it was fair for him to make the challenge But he didn't and couldn't, so Benfica have to see out the final bit with 10 men. What a debut that is for their summer signing!
Benfica take off Pizzi, who's been the best of a stinking lot, and bring on Alfa.
This is still absolute nonsense. I cannot remember when the last time I saw a game this poor, it's easily the worst since Man United - Valencia.
Brahimi hacks down Grimaldo and is booked.
Change for Porto: Andre Pereira replaces Soares.
Rafa slides in on Jesus, and is booked.
Porto win a corner down the right, driver to the near post ... and Danilo is up but can only head wide, so he crosses himself by way of compensation and commiseration.
Porto have been awful so far. No zest, no enterprise, no attitude.
Change for Porto, Corona replacing Maxi.
Pizzi's corner is headed out for a throw.
Rafa drives at the porto box and finds Slavio, whose low shot hits Dias and goes behind.
