The European campaign is over


Benfica was defeated at Estádio da Luz by the strength and the efficacy of Basel's counter-attack (0-2).

The Benfica's participation in UEFA, in 2017/18, is over, after the match against Basel, at Estádio da Luz.

Recognizing the ones who “deserved to play” in this last European match, Rui Vitória changed a few pieces, stipulating the victory as a goal in the farewell. Nevertheless, it was not fulfilled: the Swiss champions beat Benfica using its strength and efficacy in the counter-attack, leaving the eagles with no points in Group A.

Benfica turns now to Liga NOS, putting all efforts towards the "Pentacampeonato" (five consecutive leagues), the season's main goal.
