Estádio da Luz breathed a sigh of relief on Monday night as Benfica performed against Zenit (3-0) in the 6th and final match of the Champions League.
Bruno Lage’s side managed to defeat the Russian side and secure a place in the Europa League, as well as adding color to the Champions League campaign.
The Eagles have always been in control of all the actions of the game, but only in the second part did they manage to turn that domain into practical results.
Cervi (47 ‘) opened the accounts, Pizzi dilated the accounts (59’) and Azmoun (79 ‘) did what he did not want and fixed what would be the end result.
Benfica have perhaps signed the best performance in this Champions League and ended their stay in the millionaire race as well, earning nearly three million euros from their triumph against the Russian side.
