This Tuesday, the first quarter of the first qualifying round of the Champions League began. It should be remembered that Benfica will only enter the competition in the third qualifying round, with Sporting and FC Porto securing a place in the group stage.
However, some Portuguese players were already working on this early stage of the Champions League. In Luxembourg, Fola Esch (2-2) drew level at the reception from Gibraltar to Lincoln. Halfway through the home team, Bruno Correa launched Mendes and Pereira, while Bernardo L ലോpez started outsiders.
Close newly signed goalkeeper Cristiano Borac helped the bench to a comfortable (3-1) victory over Luka. Camora, who was naturalized by the Romanian Portuguese, was the captain of the home team.
Finally, in the victory over Montenegrin Buduknost (3-1), Bujakar Jale was on the bench of HJK’s Finns.
