July 10, 2019, will always be special. In front of more than 50 thousand fans, Benfica presented itself to the Members against Anderlecht, with the result of 1-2 for the Belgians, with goals from Chiquinho for the home team and from Vlap and Thelin for the squad from Brussels; Jonas said goodbye to the Reds and their supporters after five years at the Club, and end his career as a professional player.
Benfica's preparation will continue flat out, with the team coached by Bruno Lage facing Académica on July 13 before heading to the United States of America, where they will participate in the International Champions Cup.
