Nicolás Otamendi scores first goal of league season in Benfica win


Nicolás Otamendi scored his first league goal of the season in Benfica’s 1-0 win vs. Estoril Praia.

Otamendi got his first goal of the season in the league and it would be the goal which would give Benfica the three points. It was a corner kick for Benfica which was taken short and Neres would get the cross in to Otamendi as the Argentine would leap and score a header.

Benfica lead the league in Portugal with 74 points, four ahead of FC Porto.


  1. Based on current form. Which 7 FW/Wingers for Copa.
    Nico Gonzalez
    Options:- garnacho/a correa/ j correa/simeone/ taty/ocampos.

    • Oh a lot of us here are aware of him, up until that Real game he was doing well, 7 goals and counting for a middling club like Ginora is nothing to sneeze at but in comparison to Julian (14 goals despite playing mostly as a sub), Lautaro (18 goals and counting in all competition) and Dybala (16 goals and counting) who is basically carrying Roma, Castellanos sadly pales.
      Still, at 24yrs with 4 goals against Real and 11 goals total is worthy of notoriety and I hope he keeps this up because Julian could continue to play sub at ManCity and lose his confidence, Lautaro blows hot and cold (he blew cold in Qater but luckily Julian was there) and with Dybala’s never ending fitness issues someone like Catellanos could come in handy.

      • Lautaro 18 goals but only 11 from open play and only 9 in league.
        Julian only 5 league goals in league.
        Dybala only 7 goals in open play.
        All of them stalwarts with big reputation.
        Taty coming from MLS and went through some tough time and showing character. I think he can look at thinks positively.
        Lautaro only 2 goals in CL and less than 10 Euro goals in 5 seasons. It tells a big story and Scaloni should have the no.9 position vacant and look for options.

  2. Unai Emery wants to sign lo celso again for Aston Villa It will be amazing to see lo celso and Buendia playing together under great manager Emery.

    Pochettino will be Chelsea manager which I have wished since they fired Potter, I’m sure enzo and Chelsea will be success under him I also believe he may bring leo paredes at Chelsea.

    Alexis macallister is leaving for Brighton his destiny likely to be at man utd.

    Facundo medina he may come to elp next season.

      • I think he will do better under unai Emery,
        We can’t charge him based his spurs days even though he did well briefly before his injuries and lack the trust of conte and Fabio Paratici, funny things both has left tottenham in embarrassing way.

    • Paredes seriously dude 🤣🤣…not a chance… Pochettino isn’t a gambler, forget about Paredes with Chelsea quite frankly they don’t need him …can’t defend even if his life depend on it

    • The one player Chelsea need in midfield is Caicedo. Enzo needs a DM who is defensive minded. Both Potter and Lampard were/are foolish to make Kante more offensive minded and Enzo more defensive minded. It should be the other way around. They both want to use Enzo like he is Guido Rodriguez for Argentina.
      It will never work.

  3. Poch is close to Chelsea’s signing. Good for Enzo and Chelsea in general. Chelsea plays safe this time even Poch is not known for winning titles
