Benfica was close to winning against Barcelona, but Haris Seferović missed an excellent situation. – It was almost impossible! – Coach Jorge Jesus said about playing his footballer.
Jesus, who fell on the pitch, took his box very emotionally. A goal would have secured Benfica a promotion to the knockout stage.
– I’m devastated. I have been working as a trainer for over 30 years. I have never seen any of my players miss an opportunity like this. It was almost impossible. This match destroyed me emotionally Jesus said.
– Was it one of our best games this season? Not. This was the game where I suffered the most from Seferovic’s box. We played well in defense. Barcelona had two chances, but our chances were clearer – Benfica’s coach added.
The team from Lisbon has had a chance of being promoted to the next round. However, he has to win against Dynamo Kiev and hope that Bayern will not lose to Barcelona.
– I hope that they will play with respect for the sport and put the best players in the last match Jesus said about Bayern.
