His actions and how to recover to return to be Benfica candidate for the Portuguese title and the qualification for the knockout of the Champions League.
Having lost with CSKA Moscow on the opening day made it all the more difficult for Benfica in this competition.
But it will not be to give up, right away, the goal designed by the team of Rui Vitória.
The tide, however, began to change. Simple things that help transform a whole lacking in more concrete voices in how to approach problems.
Fejsa allows everything around you to change globally. The Benfica model is designed for a player with his characteristics, lacking answers when the Serbian is not.
The victory against Paços de Ferreira guaranteed that.
With Júlio César on goal, even though the goalkeeper is now a long way from his best times, he can, through his experience,
give more guarantees of stability to a defensive line that, here and there, still walks on embers.
The opponent that lies ahead is, too, far from his best. Without being able to remain constant in the League of Switzerland,
Basel lost on the opening day against Manchester United, leaving the idea that it is far from the competition in this group.
Basel vs Benfica Prognosis:
The opportunity for Benfica to add, in Switzerland, their first victory in this group is notorious, but also essential to return to the fight for the first two places.
From that comes the understanding that Benfica will have to have ball, demonstrate their most dominant personality and find a way to reach the goal and be able to hold advantage.
Basel will do for its survival. But only a Benfica, again, trembling among his uncertainties may allow the dream.
