Why Bruno Lage was missing from sidelines in Champions League

Benfica Blog
Bruno Lage was noticeably absent on the Benfica sidelines in yesterdays Champions League encounter against RB Leipig. This had many fans wondering where the Benfica manager was as assistant Nelson Verissimo trolled the sidelines at the Luz. Lage for those fans that did not know was serving a one match ban handed down by UEFA for his behaviour in last seasons second leg to Eintracht Frankfurt in Europa League play. Lage's ban was the result of him berating of an official during Benfica's controversial second leg loss were a clear offside goal was allowed to stand. Lage will return to the bench for Benfica's next Champions League game against Zenit on October 2.
