Benfica play host to Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday as the Portuguese league leaders aim to overcome a first-leg deficit and advance to the semi-finals.
Last week, Bayern were 1-0 victors at home, a solitary goal from Arturo Vidal in the opening moments being enough to put them on the front foot for the second leg.
In spite of the first-leg victory, Pep Guardiola took care to rotate his squad over the weekend and give some of his star players a bit of extra rest.
“We’ll travel to Lisbon with respect,” CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge explained, according to his club’s official website. “It’s going to be a tough match, but the result in the first leg wasn’t so bad.”
Benfica coach Rui Vitoria didn’t have the luxury of being able to rotate his stars over the weekend, with Sporting hot on his side’s heels. The Eagles beat Academica Coimbra on Saturday, but the win proved to be costly as captain and star attacker Nico Gaitan sustained a muscular injury that has left his availability for Wednesday’s match in question.
With Jonas suspended and the possibility of Gaitan being out, Benfica’s attack will be decimated, and the hosts still need a goal to draw level on aggregate. It promises to be a huge task for the Portuguese side.
Still, Benfica midfielder Pizzi spoke confidently of his side when UEFA.com interviewed him over the weekend. The 26-year-old underlined the importance of having the home crowd behind him: “There is a fantastic atmosphere at the Estadio da Luz,” he said. “Our fans show all their passion, and obviously everyone at Benfica expects another great European night.”
Rui Vitoria believes his Benfica side’s showing in their Champions League quarterfinal first leg vs. Bayern Munich puts them in a good position to surprise the Bundesliga power on Wednesday in Lisbon.
Benfica managed to leave the Allianz Arena in Munich just one goal down, after conceding an early strike to Arturo Vidal and then holding on for the 1-0 final.
Now Vitoria says the team will hunker down at the Estadio da Luz and focus on defence first as they try to pull off a miracle win against Pep Guardiola’s side and advance to the semifinals.
“We have to play well defensively as we’re facing one of the best teams in the world, one of the favourites to win the competition and a side who set up the same home and away,” Vitoria said ahead of the match, while adding: “Nicolas Gaitan is a doubt and only before the match will I know if I can count on him.”
