Luisao : Benfica News
“After a strong start from the hosts Benfica clawed their way back with captain Luisao heading straight at Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki from a free-kick midway through the half.”

“The editorial was written in the wake of yesterday’s 4-0 drubbing of Benfica by Borussia Dortmund.”
 Portugoal 16 days ago
“On paper, Dortmund are the better side, and they seem to have overcome their earlier blip, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it'll end 2-1 to the hosts and Benfica will sneak through on away goals. 7.”
 Sports Mole 16 days ago
“Benfica force a few more corners and Luisao wins a header at the far post that Benfica would have hopes to do better with. Suddenly the game is very open and now Dembele drives at Luisao - who makes an outstanding save.”
 Mirror 16 days ago
“But if Dortmund thought it was going to be one-way traffic they were mistaken when Benfica started to create opportunities. Roman Burki was on hand to save a Cervi shot in the 23rd minute and shortly afterwards the goalkeeper was tested by a Luisao header.”

“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Benfica (4-4-2): Ederson; Nelson Semedo, Luisao (capt), Victor Lindelof, Eliseu; Eduardo Salvio, Andreas Samaris, Pizzi, Andre Almeida; Franco Cervi, Kostas Mitroglou”

“Luisao then directed a header straight at Burki from before shooting straight at Ederson 10 minutes later following another set-piece situation.”

“Benfica: Burki; Piszczek, Bartra for Manchester United in January – has been included in the starting XI as he’s been paired alongside Luisao in the hope of keeping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang quiet.”

“93' Second Half ends, Borussia Dortmund 4, Benfica 0. 90' Offside, Borussia Dortmund. Lukasz Piszczek tries a through ball, but Erik Durm is caught offside. 88' Foul by Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund).”
 Marca 17 days ago
“Luisao, Lindelof, Eliseu; Salvio, Samaris, Pizzi, Zivkovic; Rafa, Mitroglou. Dortmund are odds-on favourites to win on home turf according to Oddschecker, with most bookmakers pricing them at 4/11. The draw is available at 9/2 and Benfica are 9/1 outsiders.”
