In the main posters of this Champions League play-off, Benfica got the better of PSV Fifth after the first round (2-1). However, after the first period controlled by the Portuguese, the expected shock took time to emerge. With more bleeding on their lawn, Rafa Silva (10th) cross shot was able to open the scoring quickly. Less accurately, PSV could not respond despite multiple chances (29th, 32nd, 34th). Until Julian Weigel takes a break at close range with the locals (42nd).
But after the PSV break that flattery for Benfica narrowed the gap. Cody Gagpo, standing at 20 meters, revealed a clear view, which surprised Odysseus Vlachodimos (51st). The Dutch then confiscated the ball (61% possession in the second half) and it was very dangerous (3 for 7 shots), but they could not catch it completely. They must be very realistic in their land once they return to overthrow the Lisbonians.
Favorable discount for Malmo and young boys
In the other two evening meetings, Malmo and Bernin’s Young Boys were also in favor of their respective clashes. The Swedes passed their lesson at home against the Ludocorets (2-0). They will travel to Bulgaria with a comfortable mattress to join the group stage. For its part, Bern had a match full of twists and turns against Ferencvaros (3-2). At the head of the score, the Swiss immediately equalized and were reduced to ten, then saw the Hungarians miss the penalty spot. Despite the numerical inferiority, they were able to do what was necessary to succeed. But they have to catch up coming back.
