Incarnates lost in Russia to Zenit 3-1 on matchday two of the Champions League group stage. The international sports press highlighted Raúl de Tomás' exhibition, spoke in class and recalled that mistakes "pay dearly".
Mistakes pay dearly (Kicker)
Two tremendous defensive errors from Benfica culminated in the first two goals of Zenit and unbalanced a match that, until then, could fall for either team.
Only Saved From Thomas (AS)
Benfica sank against a Zenit, who gave a tactical bath to the Portuguese. A mistake by Fejsa precipitated the Russian victory and, on the eagle side, only Thomas was saved by a great goal.
Eagle Holds Flashlight (Throw!)
In a game played at a good pace, Zenit was better than Benfica and won 3-1. Jardel, Gabriel, Caio Lucas and Carlos Vinicius played for the eagles, which hold the group's lantern.
Revenge serves cold
Zenit took revenge on their defeat against Benfica in their last Champions League game with competence and pressure. Revenge has been completed and Russia remains ahead of Portugal in the UEFA ranking.
A Matter of Class (France Football)
Superior to Benfica in every respect, Zenit scored a just victory. The eagles have not had class to stop Azmoun, the Iranian Messi, and will play all or nothing in the double match with Lyon.
