BALL - Only 10 players have more minutes than Luis Diaz (FC Porto)

He left for Liverpool and left a trail of nostalgia for the Porto fans. Sergio Conceição also suffered from the loss of the team’s star, especially at such a critical time in the season when the Blue and Whites were involved in several competitive fronts.

Luis Diaz is spreading magic in the Premier League, making Anfield crowds vibrate and with intoxicating dribbles pocketing those who criticize the €45m Liverpool spent to rob Porto of the greatest Colombian talent of today. The amount of the deal could be 60 million, depending on the sporting goals achieved by Diaz, but we are not talking about that now.

The Porto winger’s influence on Conceição’s strategy has been so strong that in a championship shot, Luis Diaz will end the campaign as the team’s 11th player with the most minutes in the competition, 1,514 minutes in 18 matches. And no one will take it from there, because Fabio Vieira is behind, from 1304′. Lack of play, math is not difficult to do. Most extraordinary, Diaz is also the 11th passenger in Porto’s global player campaign, totaling 2,278 minutes across all competitions. As in the League, behind is Fabio Vieira, who also has no mathematical chance to catch up with the now Liverpool player. Diaz said goodbye to Porto after playing 18 games and scoring 17 goals. He is the Blue and White’s third top scorer in all competitions, trailing only Taremi at 24th and Evanilson at 21st. The Colombian also no longer takes last place on the podium at the finish line.

BALL - First potential Champions League opponents already known (Benfica)

Finishing third in the league, Benfica advanced to the third qualifying round of the Champions League. This means that Luz’s team will have to go through two rounds to reach the group stage of the Millionaire Contest, similar to what they did last season.

And with most of the European championships already decided, the path the Eagles will have to take is beginning to be determined. For now, Benfica know they will enter the draw as a seed and have two opponents who could get lucky: Sturm Graz (Austria) and Union St. Louis. Giloise (Belgium).

According to the current situation, the Reds will avoid Dynamo Kyiv (who will play in the second qualifying round) and Rangers (who can go straight to the group stage if they win the Europa League). But a reunion between Roger Schmidt and PSV could take place.

The emblem of Eindhoven finished second in the Dutch Championship and also advances to the third qualifying round. However, the status of the Dutch top seed depends on the third place in the French championship (this can be Marseille, which is now in position, or Monaco, which is ahead), the position of Rangers or second-placed Denmark (at the time when Copenhagen is followed by Central Jutland).

See the table with the current situation:

Series heads:

Benfica (odds 61,000)

Rangers (49.250)

Dynamo Kyiv (44000) – or Winner of the second qualifying round match to be played by Ukrainians

Define:

PSV Eindhoven (33000)

Marseille (44,000) / Monaco (26,000) – third in Ligue 1
