As you can see, at once two replacements occurred in the usual starting line-up of the "Lisbon eagles". In the frame instead of Bruno Varela appeared German goalkeeper from the Greek Panathinaikos Odysseus Vlachodimos, and on the spearhead of the attack of the best scorer, the Brazilian Jonas's substitute was replaced by Argentine striker Facundo Ferreira. But, the main task of Rui Vitoria's team fulfilled, and now in the return match in Istanbul the guests will be satisfied even with a zero draw.

Phillip Koku lost his first official match in the status of head coach of the vice-champion of Turkey. However, the current regulation of the playoffs of the European club championship allows Fenerbahce to return to the next fourth round of qualification as a result of the return home match.


However, to achieve this goal, Volkan Demirel, Mehmet Topal, Nabil Dirar, Mathieu Valbuena and other stars of the new team of Philippe Coke need in 90 minutes of normal time to beat his opponent with at least a score - 1: 0. With this result, an overtime will be appointed, and then, possibly, a series of post-match penalties. Naturally, the desired score - 2: 0 immediately would have brought "canaries" to the next qualifying stage. But when the score - 2: 1, 3: 2, 4: 3 will be further Benfica due to more guest balls.

In the first match Fenerbahce just defended himself and miraculously did not miss more than 1 goal. In fact, in that match, it was not enough to see the work of Phillip Cock, and it was more like "play as you can". Yes, and in the sparring before the start of the new season, the "yellow canaries" showed a nondescript game, because they constantly missed (even from weaker rivals).


But Benfica just gorgeously held the first game, but the team could score and should have been more. However, the players of Rui Vitoria understood how to play against this opponent, and they know how to dominate. Well, it's not strange, because even in the MHC matches against the European grandees, the "eagles" proved themselves worthy and scored goals (not one by one) ...


Bookmakers do not single out any of the teams at all, which is not entirely logical. I understand that in Turkey it's hard to play visiting teams, but in fact Benfica is now in all respects superior to Fenerbahce. In addition, the guests will have more for one day of rest, so that they will also be physically better prepared. Given these factors, I propose to put on not losing guests.
