Ugh. I really did not want Benfica.
Welp, I guess this is how our run ends.
The paths are already drawn, we'd get the winner of Milan-Napoli if we were to advance.weakest team outside of us and Ac Milan. We got away from Napoli, Real, Bayern and City. It's a big win. We have a shot. Then we are the under dogs for the next round.
Would love Chelsea the next round and Lukaku finally goes back to god mode. Would be hilarious to knock them out with their own player. Or to win Champions league and be like FK u Skriniar you will never win this at PSG
AHAHAHAHAH was thinking the same! What an incredible drawIt’s fucking hilarious that this team has a chance of making it to a CL final.
Yeah, people here seem to be taking names/past reputation more seriously. Benfica isn't roll over by any means, in fact if you ask neutral fans, most will say that they're favorite over us. I read somewhere that they along with napoli are two most in form teams in Europe this season. Still, It's nice to see that this place can be optimistic once in a whileThe paths are already drawn, we'd get the winner of Milan-Napoli if we were to advance.
Benfica are not weak at all. You might not have seen them play, and they are slightly weaker compared to before due to the loss of Enzo Fernandez, but they play amazing football atm.
The fact that somehow a lot of you here believe that Milan, the team that in the last 2 months have lost 4-0 to Lazio & 5-2 to Sassuolo (at home), and it its most recent match couldn't manage a home win against relegation battling Salernitana, will win against Napoli, who are extra motivated given the importance of the potential achievement they can make this year + can also pretty much play their 2nd team in all the remaining matches of Serie A and still win it, is just bonkers.
Benfica has a better team and is individually much superior than Porto.We barely beat Porto. Benfica are comfortably ahead of Porto in the table. Was this a best case scenario draw? Just about, but Benfica are equally thrilled to be seeing us.
Also, fuck Joao Mario forever.
stop those "beatable teams", underestimate, over confidence, wrong motivation theories shit. those mentalities were the reason why Inter lost against Spezia, Bologna, Empoli, Monza, Sampdoria etc. Just try to persuade the players to win every match available, never underestimate, regardless of the opponent.I like this draw cause there is no excuses for Pussymone now. If you lose to Benfica(idc how good they are,they are not Real or City) you are an ex my friend. We have a great chance to go even to finale. Imagine that...Benfica,Napoli,beelan, they are all beatable.
