The loss of Benfica in Ukraine marked four games without a victory for Thursday’s hosts, who lost three of their last four. Fortunately, the Portuguese club entered this second leg with only a deficit of one goal to cancel.
After all, Benfica was perhaps unfortunate to lose in Donetsk, since they created as much as their hosts, although when they were in a good position, they failed to reach the same level of the final product, which is something that will have to change on Thursday.
Something else that must change as soon as possible is the rickety defense of Benfica, who continues to lose goals. Thursday’s hosts have yielded in five of their last six, while they haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet in each of their last six in front of a local crowd.
