Preparing itself for the ninth consecutive presence in the Champions League group stage, the squad of Benfica made the last adjustments in this Tuesday morning training session at Caixa Futebol Campus. For the Eagles, the Champions League starts with the home match against Bayern at 8 pm on Wednesday.
In 15 minutes of training open to the press, it was possible to observe the inclusion of Krovinovic in the regular work of the group led by Rui Vitória, although the return of the attacking midfielder to the competition is only scheduled for October.
The young right-back Luís Pinheiro worked under the coach on the eve of the match against the six-time German champion. The defender Corchia, recovering from injury, trained on the pitch, while the forward Ferreyra stayed at the gym.
The referee appointed by UEFA for the Benfica-Bayern is the Spaniard Mateu Lahoz.
