Benfica eliminated from Champions League

Benfica Blog
Benfica crash out of the Champions League once again at the quarter final stage after a thrilling 3-3 draw to Inter Milan but a first leg 2-0 loss at the Estadio da Luz proves costly and ended any hope that the Portuguese side had to advance in a tie that the club came into as favourites to succeed.

The club's fans are disappointed and heartbroken after coming into the stage optimistic and in one of the best season forms in all of Europe.

That all changed on Good Friday with a loss to FC Porto and the club are now in a four game winless run that has seen their lead atop Portugal evaporate to just four points from a comfortable ten.

The club's coach, Roger Schmidt, expressed his disappointment at the team's failure to move on but also praised his players for their efforts. He said that they had given their all but unfortunately it was not enough to progress to the next round.

Benfica will look to snap out of their funk this weekend as they host Estoril with only the league left to play for, the fans would expect no less.
