A dangerous procedure – AS.com


Fernndez Menendez, Miguel Angel

Benfica has a foot and a half in the quarterfinals, but the other half is missing. And to overcome this crossing, they will have to force Bruges not to raise their heads. The Belgians are going through a real hell this season. They fired Hoefkens in December after qualifying for the round of 16 because they had gone nine games with only two wins and his replacement, Scott Parker is not getting any better. In eleven games he has only won two. “It doesn’t affect me because I don’t read what the newspapers write”confessed at a press conference about the doubts about his continuity (follow the game live on As.com).

Going through this bad moment can be your best weapon to overcome such an adverse result. Against that, Benfica will have to fight, who has not felt the (very important) winter market sales. With the league on track, going far in the Champions League once again excites a team that already reached the quarterfinals last season. Roger Schmidt explained: “We’re having a very good season, but what happens at the end of it is what’s important.” That is why he does not want to claim victory yet.

The locals will have to go with lead feet because they have four fundamental players warned of sanction. Yes Joao Mario, Goncalo RamosOtamendi or Florentino saw the yellow card, they would miss the first leg of the quarterfinals. Four holders that will have to have a special care. Bah it seems that he is ready, although he trained in the gym yesterday. Guedes also comes out of injury and Draxler and Ristic are the only casualties.
