Champions League season begins and teams who have not taken the title in second-round championships, and the most interesting will be in Lisbon. Portugal’s vice-champion, Benfica will fight in the Champions League preliminaries with Turkey’s vice-champion, Fenerbahce.
Benfica has the most titles in Portugal. It was a rebound after four consecutive titles. With no remarkable performance as a player, 48-year-old coach Rui Vitoria took the last two of these titles and even if he missed the trophy last season was preserved. Benfica is undergoing a transformation process. Base players left last season. The results of the training period were unconvincing and the fans are worried about the weak form of the defensive, which won seven goals in the last five games.
Fenerbahce hopes that this president’s change will be auspicious. No spectacular moves have taken place on the Fener transfer market so far. Forward striker Fernandao went to the Gulf on three million, and the most important acquisition is the Ghanaian Andre Ayew. Benfica and Fenerbahce did not start the championship and it is normal to have defensive timing problems. There are also two teams with very good offensive potential.
