No time to waste on Adel Taarabt. The midfielder was named man of the match between Benfica Lisbon and Tondela.
While the leader of La Liga NOS, Porto fell to the Estadio Municipal de Famalicao (2-1), on the occasion of the resumption of football in Portugal, Benfica, a small point behind, had the opportunity to regain the lead to the Drages if successful on their lawn of the Estadio Da Luz, against the 15th, Tondela.
But all the cadors seem to be experiencing a delay in the ignition, since Benfica was hooked by Clube Desportivo de Tondela, after a match without spectators and without a goal (0-0). Even if Benfica did not win, Adel Taarabt did not wait to shine.
The Moroccan midfielder was named man of the match after the match he played in its entirety. This season, Taarabt has made 32 appearances for Benfica (1 goal, 2 assists, 10 yellow cards and 1 red).
“We started the game well and if we had scored in the first 30 minutes or in the first half, everything would be different. They had ten players behind. We pressed, but the ball didn’t want to get into the net,” entrusted the Atlas Lion at the end of the meeting.
Thanks to this small point, the Lisboets regain the lead, thanks to a better overall goal difference. They remain tied with Porto, who dominate the league with the particular difference. The last nine days promise suspense.
