Filed under: Futebol,Taça de Portugal — looking4good @ 8:05 pm
O destaque dos oitavos de final vai para o Leixões que no jogo mais importante (entre os dois primeiros classificados da Liga Sagres) eliminou o Benfica após 0-0, mas com desfecho favorável à equipa de Matosinhos na decisão através da marcação de pontapés da marca da grande penalidade. Os leixonenses marcarm todos e Reyes falhou o 5º.

O Cinfães da 3ª.Divisão não sobreviveu naturalmente, frente ao FC Porto ainda que tenha podido chegar ao 1-1 praticamente a meio da 2ª. parte.

Quem sobrevive é o Atlético de Valdevez que derrotou o Santa Clara da Liga Vitalis por 3-1. Foi o único jogo em que uma equipa do escalão inferior derrotou outra hierarquicamente melhor situada, já que o Belenenses foi ganhar a Olhão, o Paços de Ferreira derrotou tranquilamente o Vizela em casa, a Naval derrotou facilmente o Portimonense e o Estrela da Amadora venceu o Olivais e Moscavide por 1-0 ainda que tenha precisado de ir ao prolongamento.

Entre equipas do mesmo escalão para além da eliminação do Benfica, o Nacional foi derrotar o Trofense a casa deste e também o Guimarães fora de casa levou a melhor fente ao Guimararães com um golo único de Flávio Meireles de cabeça.

O Poeta – Teixeira de Pascoaes

Ninguém contempla as cousas, admirado.
Dir-se-á que tudo é simples e vulgar…
E se olho a flor, a estrela, o céu doirado,
Que infinda comoção me faz sonhar!

É tudo para mim extraordinário!
Uma pedra é fantástica! Alto monte
Terra viva, a sangrar como um Calvário
E branco espectro, ao luar, a minha fonte!

É tudo luz e voz! Tudo me fala!
Ouço lamúrias de almas no arvoredo,
Quando a tarde, tão lívida, se cala,
Porque adivinha a noite e lhe tem medo.

Não posso abrir os olhos sem abrir
Meu coração à dor e á alegria.
Cada cousa nos sabe transmitir
Uma estranha e quimérica harmonia!

É bem certo que tu, meu coração,
Participas de toda a Natureza.
Tens montanhas na tua solidão
E crepúsculos negros de tristeza!

As cousas que me cercam, silenciosas,
São almas, a chorar, que me procuram.
Quantas vagas palavras misteriosas,
Neste ar que aspiro, trémulas, murmuram!

Vozes de encanto vêm aos meus ouvidos,
Beijam os meus olhos sombras de mistério.
Sinto que perco, às vezes, os sentidos
E que vou flutuar num rio aéreo…

Sinto-me sonho, aspiração, saudade,
E lágrima voando e alada cruz…
E rasteirinha sombra de humildade,
Que é, para Deus, a verdadeira luz.

Teixeira de Pascoaes (Joaquim Pereira Teixeira de Vasconcelos) nasceu em 2 Nov 1877 em Amarante; m. em 14 Dez. 1952.

Taça de Portugal: Leixões elimina Benfica nos penalties

Leixões

0-0 (5-4*)

Benfica

Quem não joga para ganhar arrisca-se a perder…


De novo o Benfica não ganhou contra o Leixões. De novo (terceira vez consecutiva) que o Benfica jogando fora na Taça de Portugal é eliminado.

Benfica avisado do poderio do Leixões, terá tido excesso de avisos e não assumiu claramente o favoritismo que a uma equipa cheia de crakes (Luisão, Reyes, Suazo, Aimar e com Cardozo, Nuno Gomes no banco!) tinha de ter perante uma equipa que na época passada estava na II Liga.

Na primeira parte foi até a equipa de Matosinhos que demonstrou mais perigo e teve ligeira superioridade. Na segunda o Benfica respondeu mas nem nos livres as equipas criaram situações eminentes de golo. A 2 minutos do final Nuno Gomes teve nos pés o golo do triunfo mas demorou tanto a rematar que o máximo que conseguiu foi uma situação de confusão na área dos locais, mas em que existiu penalty de Vasco Fernandes .

No prolongamento o Benfica parecia mais afoito na primeira parte mas na segunda as equipas já só esperavam pelos penalties.

Um jogo em que cada guarda-redes só fez uma defesa digna desse nome só poderia terminar zero a zero. Mas se ao Leixões esta estratégia é compreensível ao Benfica equipa e clube de outros recursos e dimensão competia-lhe não adiar a solução para os penalties e assumir mais a responsabilidade de lutar pela vitória. Porém com Aimar e Suazo em sub-rendimento demoraram as substituições no Benfica.

Nos penalties foram os leixonenses a sair a marcar e a verdade é que marcaram sempre. O Benfica respondeu até ao quinto e decisivo penalty mas aí um dos taois craques Reyes viu o remate ser defendido por Beto.

Benquerença voltou a ser o árbitro do jogo (como havia sido na Liga) e não mostrou isenção. De novo voltou a prejudicar os encarnados de Lisboa, em algumas faltas e no critério disciplinar, (faltas sobre Katsoutranis, David Luís e Reyes eram merecedoras de amarelo, mas a exibição do cartão foi quase sempre para os encarnados: cinco vezes) e num penalty segundos antes do fim do tempo regulamentar, que não assinalou.

Caminho aberto para o Porto vencer a Taça de Portugal, enquanto o Benfica dá uma no cravo e outra na ferradura. Continua a demonstrar falta de meio-campo ofensivo, ainda que a defesa e meio-campo defensivo tenha estabilizado. De fora da Taça Uefa (e vendo os rivais Porto e Sporting apurados na Champions) e agora da Taça de Portugal, parece que esta época está a aproximar-se de mais uma grande desilusão para os benfiquistas.
