Benfica takes an option, crazy match between Maccabi Haifa and Belgrade

Continuation of the Champions League play-offs. Tonight, due to the war in Ukraine, Benfica faced Dynamo kyiv in Poland. A meeting that the Aguias quickly folded. Much better, especially physically (the Ukrainians spent many months without playing), the Lisbon team led 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Gilberto and Gonçalo Ramos. The score will no longer move. Earlier in the evening, goalless draw between Qarabag and Viktoria Plzen (0-0).

Finally, Red Star Belgrade and Maccabi Haifa gave us a spectacular encounter. Led from the 18th minute after a goal from Pierrot, the Serbs reacted before half-time by planting two banderillas by Pesic (27th) and Kanga (40th). They thought they had done the hardest part. But that was without counting on Pierrot. Author of his second goal of the evening in the 51st, the Haitian allowed his team to equalize, then it was Chery who restored the definitive advantage to the Israeli club ten minutes later.
