Odysseas made several saves but was unable to stop Petkovic's penalty kick. Despite the defeat (1-0) in the 1st leg of the tie, the player from the eagles guaranteed that the team will do everything they can to reach the goal: the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

"We were sure it was going to be a tough game, Dinamo Zagreb have a good team and here in Croatia, with the support of their fans, they are strong", he highlighted.

The eagles' number 99 jersey reinforced that, despite the negative result, Benfica remained the team with the best chances and more capable to reach the next round of the competition.
