Yes it’s true. Even with the Germans, nothing happened. Yes it’s true.

But, like almost everything in life, there is another angle of analysis. And this is now associated with Manuel Neuer, the starting goalkeeper of the German national team: 35 years old, 1.93 m tall, world champion in 2014 and 101 games for AA. Well, Ronaldo scored at least nine (!) Goals for him.

Yes, it’s true: nine. Or nineif Neuer has access to this text. The saga began on 25 April 2012 in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals Real Madrid-Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu (2-1). CR7 scored after 6 minutes from the penalty spot. Eight minutes later, the second goal after Ozil’s cross.

A little over two years later, on 29 April 2014, two more goals were scored by Bayern Munich in the return semifinal match at the Allianz Arena (4-0). De Neuer. Madrid scored twice before the 20th minute, and then, in the 34th and 90th minutes, Ronaldo returned to the stage. 3-0?

A BOLA - Benfica with an atypical pre-season but no Super Cup excuse (women's football)

It is on the field number 1 of the Benfica campus in Seixal that the official women’s national football season will begin this Wednesday at 17:30, when Benfica hosts Braga for the Super Cup.

This season, the top four players from the last BPI league will compete for the trophy, facing each other in a semi-final system, followed by the final scheduled for the 26th at 20:30 in Leiria.

Philippa Patao announced the match at the José Martins Vieira Stadium in Almada. “We can count on a prepared team or trying to do our best given the somewhat atypical pre-season we’ve had. Since we are at Benfica, there are no excuses, we have done everything possible to ensure that the entire squad is at the same level, in the same form. They did a great job, they were flawless,” praised the coach.

“We will fight and I am sure they will give a great answer in the first official competition. The main challenge for our players is to understand that they will have to adapt a lot more to the game, it depends a lot on their understanding of the game itself and the involvement that is going on. We will also do our job to convey as much information as possible. In the end, this is a good test of the adaptability they can have in the game,” he stressed.

Philippa Patao considers this semi-final to be “a good challenge and also a moment of growth”. “For our part, we should focus more on who we are, on our principles and dynamics, and then try to adapt that in the game. We are very focused on getting trophies, although we know that even in terms of timing it is not ideal, given that we have Champions League qualification ahead of us, but it is a great goal.

“We want to win everything, so we have to do everything to win. We usually tell these players that if they want to win and be happy for Benfica, they will have to fight for Benfica on the pitch as well. That’s where we need our biggest strength, the fans who are sure to give us another push when needed. I know that game time is not attractive, but I am sure that these girls deserve it,” she assured with conviction.
