In the first leg the Portuguese side won 1-0 at home. It was not very easy game for Benfica as it was expected. Benfica opened the score thanks to own goal from Bordeaux’s goalkeeper Carrasso. But after this goal the Portuguese team struggled to find opportunities with only 4 shots on target. Bordeaux must score, while Benfica could play from defence, but it is not their stile.
