Football

Dream debut as a starter for the eagles' midfielder in the European competition, in Benfica's win over Galatasaray (1-2), in what was the first red victory on Turkish soil.

Salvio and Seferovic scored the goals of Benfica's first win in Turkey. Against Galatasaray, at the Ali Sami Yen Spor Kompeksi Stadium, 1-2 in the match from the 1st leg of the Round of 32 of the Europa League. A night of great youth, courage and debuts…

I felt very comfortable because my teammates welcomed me very well. I feel like if I was in the B team. It was a good match, we managed to win and we had the upper hand”, explained Florentino.
