Benfica vs Manchester United Champions League 2011 Match
Benfica FC vs Manchester United:
UEFA Champions League 2011-2012
Date: 14 September 2011 – Time: 19:45 BST
Manchester United will be starting their 2011-2012 Champions League campaign off against familiar rivals that is Portugues team Benfica in what should be a very exciting match. usualy United tend to struggle against Portugese nations in the Europe and in the past Benfica have hurt United on several occasion. But in the last 2-3 years United have grown in confidence and they are a very soild unit in the league as well as in the Champions League and that is mainly because most of their young players have now got use to the pressure and they can handle that now.
Benfina are kind of a team who go couple of season in the Champions League with some good quality results and than they have to sell some big names and so on. This time they are going through a build up phase and getting anything against this United side is asking too much from them.
Manchester United will be looking to grab all three points and if they do so they will have the group in the bag even at so early in the group stages, as this is the toughest match they will have to play, well atleast on paper.
