He builds a streak and threatens Porto again Benfica! With Angel Di Maria finding the net for 5th time in six games this season, his team Roger Schmidt passed the home of Wijella with a score of 2-1, reducing its gap with the “dragons” to one point and awaits Salzburg at “Da Luz” for its premiere Champions League with high spirits.
Hell of a draw for Braga who surrendered to Firenze’s appetites in a humiliating 3-1 defeat, with Mateus making an epic blunder in the 44th minute.
So in the Benfica match, the “eagles” needed only nine minutes to break the Vijella defense with Moussa taking advantage of Rafa Silva’s assist for 0-1. In the 27th minute, Kioktsu sent the ball onto the post with a beautiful free kick, making it 2-0.
After twelve minutes, Angel Di Maria wanted to “teach” his teammate and with a masterful foul he made it 2-0, reaching five goals this season.
In the second half the pace dropped but Vijela tried to equalize. However, all he managed to do was reduce in the 70th minute when Orsnes overturned Samou and the Vizela striker scored for the final 2-1.
