NGO asks Benfica to stop using eagles in games in Luz

PETA, an animal rights non-governmental organization (NGO), has asked Benfica to stop using eagles in pre-game ceremonies at the Estadio da Luz stadium.

In return, the institution, led by Dan Matthews, is offering an eagle disguise that can be worn by one person.

“Eagles have no place in sporting events. In the wild, these magnificent birds roam over vast areas, spending most of their time above trees, flying freely and hunting in wide areas. Those who are used only for demonstration are denied the opportunity to engage in their natural behavior, leading to extreme frustration and stress,” wrote PETA Vice President Mimi Behechi in a letter sent in red.

“If you agree to take the birds to the reserve, PETA will cover the cost and replace them with a fabulous eagle costume that Benfica fans will love. Please join other clubs that show compassion for animals by promising not to use live animals as pets.”

On social media, PETA wrote a simple message identifying Benfica: “Eagles just don’t belong at sporting events.”

With this victory, AZ Alkmaar gives the Netherlands one more point – plus 0.5 from PSV Eindhoven’s draw on Tuesday in the Champions League play-offs. Which is not a problem, not least because Benfica also won a point for Portugal. beating Dean. Kyiv.

But if the relegation of Gil Vicente is confirmed, Portugal will start the European group stage with only four teams able to score: Porto, Sporting CP, Benfica and Sp. Braga. And these points will always be divided by the total number of teams that have qualified for the competition. That is six.

The Netherlands, which have qualified with only five teams, remain with all of them in the competition for now. And only Twente, which lost this Thursday in Florence to Fiorentina (2-1) is in danger of being removed.

The Netherlands started the season before Portugal, so if the league does not catch up with the Eredivisie at the end of the season, it will fall to seventh place and at the same time lose a place in the Champions League and a team in European competition. There will be five instead of the current six.
