Da Luz is good at Bayern. In fact, the German team enjoys every stage it walks on and amuses sports lovers with its spectacular game, but its connection with the Lisbon stadium is already special. There he thrashed 2-8 at Barça in the quarterfinals of a 2019-20 Champions League whose final he also won on that same lawn at PSG (1-0). And at the home of Benfica he again showed his potential on this third day of Group E of the Champions League to prevail 0-4 and complete a 9 of 9 in points with 12 goals in favor and none against. The Bavarian roller also gave a hand to Barça, which thus, with three points after winning 1-0 at Dynamo Kyiv, has the Portuguese team (4 points) to shoot.
And that Bayern had a hard time getting ahead on the scoreboard. Nothing more and nothing less than 70 minutes. between missed occasions (two of Sané), prodigious stops of Odysseas Vlachodimos (a Lewandowski and Coman in the first half), goals canceled by the VAR that the referee had conceded (hand of Lewandowski and positional offside of Coman in a target of Müller) and even posts (Surname and Müller, although in this case subsequently annulled by another millimeter offside).
When Sané opened the can on 70 ‘with an extraordinary free-kick with his left foot from the front, the team from Jorge Jesus lowered his arms. You can understand why he had resisted Bayern’s onslaught and with his excellent high pressure, the same with which he destroyed Barça (3-0), he had also touched 1-0 up to three times, but News He showed off his reflexes before the shots of the Uruguayan Darwin Nunez in 32 ‘and from the Portuguese Diogo Gonçalves in the 60 ‘. Also the ukrainian Yaremchuk he crossed too much at 67 ‘in good position.
Benfica came to believe that defeating the German giant was possible, but Sané he nailed the foul in the squad in 70 ‘and collapsed. It also influenced that the 0-2 came with very bad fortune: the Brazilian’s own goal Everton, who had just entered, when clearing headlong into the back of the net a center of Gnabry from the baseline.
Sané, stellar, saw Benfica injured and completed the phase with a very generous assist at 0-3 a Lewandowski, who only had to push the ball into the goal, and closed the 0–4 with a great shot after a play from the right of Stanisic. Julian Nagelsmann, who stayed at the hotel with the flu, breathed easy.
