What was the last result between Benfica-Barcelona?
Barcelona 0-0 Benfica (12/5/2012)
– The Lisbon painting it did not start in the best way their participation in this group stage. He couldn’t get past goalless draw against Dynamo Kiev (0-0), the weakest rival of all. In league they go like a shot, and against Vitoria Guimaraes they added their seventh victory in as many games (1-3)
– Benfica faces a rival who has food for him. He has not been able to beat him in his last 6 matches, with 3 defeats and 3 draws, and has only been able to score 1 goal for the 6 he has received. Of course, his only victory against them It was in the 1961 final (3-2), the first European Cup of the two in a row that the club has.
– The good thing is that they will almost certainly have all players in the first squad, since they hardly have the doubt of André Almeida for some muscular discomfort
– Koeman’s team needs imperiously win later of the hard defeat at the premiere against him Bayern Munich (0-3). At least in the league they returned to the path of victory with a thrashed in front of Levante (3-0)
– Without a doubt the great news of this Sunday it was the return of Ansu Fati. The boy returned to play a soccer game 10 months and four operations later breaking your knee. Above, he did it through the front door, with a goal on the first ball touched.
– The return of Ansu is the good part, but still the azulgranas they continue with many casualties. Wague, Dembele, Braithwaite, Baldé, Jordi Alba and Agüero they fall insurance due to injury. Pedri is almost ruled out and Sergi Roberto it is doubt by his gastroenteritis.
Benfica: Vlachodimos; Otamendi, Vertonghen, Morato; Gilberto, Joao Mario, Weigl, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva, Everton and Yaremchuk
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Mingueza, Araújo, Piqué, Dest; Busquets, De Jong, Gavi; Coutinho, Depay and Luuk De Jong
The party has charged a lot of importance especially for Barcelona, even though it’s just the second of this phase of groups. The victory against Levante should serve as an injection of moral against an opponent who, as I have said before, is held by the hand. They carry without scoring a goal for more than 30 years. The ‘Ansu Fati effect’ It has been a plus for the Catalans, who cling to the youth and hunger of their kids to be successful this season. Benfica will not make it easy at all, but Barcelona must take advantage of the good momentum of Sunday to get the 3 points.
Benfica 0-2 Barcelona
