Aimana could be hit by hell after Barca: I haven’t seen anything like it in 30 years

The Spanish and Portuguese teams broke up without goals on Tuesday, although H. Seferovičius had to penalize the hosts with the last blow.

81 min. The Swiss national team, who had stepped on the lawn after the change, soon found himself on the cusp of a counterattack when two Benfica players ran out against one of their opponents.

H. Seferovičius initially tried to move the ball through the goal via Marc Andre ter Stegen. The idea was a failure, but the ball, which bounced off the back of the Barcelona goalkeeper, gave the 29-year-old another chance.

Only the defender Ericas Garcia already covered the opponents’ goal, but H. Seferovičius shot near the bar.

Benfica strategist J. Jesus’ reaction to the Swiss failure said everything: Lisbon will remember this episode for a long time if there are no “eagles” in the Champions League playoffs.

“I have been working as a coach for 30 years – I have never seen anything like it before. Unfortunately, this happened to me and Benfica. After all, the gates of the rivals were already empty … ”- after the match, the 67-year-old still couldn’t believe with his own eyes.

After the draw, his pupils remained in third place in Group E (5 points), lagging behind Barcos (7 points).

However, the latter is far from comfortable. In the final round, Catalans will have to visit the group’s non-gift group leader Bayern Munich (15 points), while Benfica will host an outsiders at Kiev Dynamo (1 point).

Although dependent on rivals, the Portuguese have good reason to remain optimistic.

“We could have won, but what will you do if Seferovich didn’t hit it – it’s already happening in football. Now we have the final at home – we will win and the ticket to the next stage, “said Nicolas Otamendi, the Benfica defender from Argentina, who was recognized as the best player of the match.

He’s got a crack at the rebound all alone in front of Ronaldo Araujo … how did he miss that ?! Unbelievable.

Barcelona and Benfica hit the goal area three times, but the hosts were twice as good according to other key statistics.

And the new coach of the team, Xavi, called the “Barcelona unworthy of the name” after the match only the result, not the game.

“In this way, we can compete with anyone, including Bayern. We were a better team, we just missed a goal. The rivals came to reach zero, and that hindered us. However, we still created opportunities, we just didn’t realize them – we have to stretch in this aspect, “commented the legend of Barcelona, ​​who was at the helm of the team last week.

“We understand that we will probably need a victory in Munich. But we will prepare properly and try to achieve it, “added Frenkie de Jong, one of the team leaders.

Catalonia may be helped by the fact that Bayern has already secured first place in the group. In the last confrontation, the Bavarians crushed Barca mercilessly: last September they won the first round duel in Spain 3: 0, eliminated their rivals 8: 2 in the quarterfinals of the 2019-2020 season.
