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.
