BALL - the wound is still open (Benfica)

The days following the loss to Sporting have been challenging for the players and the Benfica technical team. On Saturday at the Seixal, the team appeared in a tense atmosphere, which, of course, was caused by a very negative result and performance, but the holders carried out only a recovery training. Sunday was a day off, and yesterday the coach started preparations for the fight with the Ukrainians in the last round of the Champions League stage.

The wound in the derby at Benfica is still open. First of all, because everyone knows that Sporting’s superiority is undeniable. Even without center-back Coates and midfielder Paligny, two of the most powerful players on the team, the Lions were more of a team, with an idea and strategy that Red lacked.

Jorge Jesus, as usual, came to Seixal very early to prepare the training and, as a result, the strategy of the fight with the Ukrainians. The coach does not want the players to get stuck in the derby, but is thinking about the match with Dynamo Kiev, in which the Reds can reach the 1/8 finals of the Champions League – they have to win and hope that Barcelona will not beat Bayern. , in Munich. And the message is really to take a step forward, at the moment thinking about Dynamo Kiev.

Triumph can help relieve immediate pressure.
