Benfica's first step towards reaching the Champions League play-off was taken in Moscow, where the team, consistent at full time, won by 0-2  away at Spartak, at the start of the 3rd qualifying round. Rafa and Gilberto, in the second half of the match, put their names in the score sheet with assists from João Mário and Lucas Veríssimo. The second leg will be played at Estádio da Luz on August 10.

For the first round against the Russian opponent, Jorge Jesus set Benfica's team in 3x4x3, with the following starting XI: Odysseas, Lucas Veríssimo, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Diogo Gonçalves, Grimaldo, Weigl, João Mário, Rafa, Pizzi and Seferovic.  


The tie will be decided next Tuesday, August 10, at the Estádio da Luz, on a night in which the Benfiquistas will return to the stands of the Cathedral!
