This could be the worst draw for Fenerbahce as IMO Benfica are the best team of Europa League 2012-2013. Chelsea would have been the best opponent for Fenerbahce as I do not think that English team is in good form this season. Last weekend Fenerbahce lost to Genclerbirligi and they lost their hopes for the Championship. Yes I know the league hasn't finished yet but there is a 7 points of gap between them and Galatasaray and there are 4 weeks left. There is no doubt that the performance they recorded in Europa League this season can not be ignored however in the reality they are a defending team and they way the play football is not the kind of those big clubs who lift big trophies. Big teams attack not DEFEND. Despite their good performance I do not believe Fenerbahce qualified to semi final deservedly as I watched both legs of the previous round against Lazio. In the first leg they were lucky that Lazio were down to 10 men and a penalty in the last minutes helped them to record a victory of 2-0. And in the second leg in Italy Lazio without their fans in the stadium had to draw 1-1 but one goal of Fenerbahce was produced by one of a few attacks that they organized during the whole match.


Lets talk about Benfica. IMO Benfica are CHL class team not Europa League. Their ball passing traffic is based on high speed and good technic. They have no trouble in being organized in midfield and with the wings. I watched one of their goal and goals in the weekend match and I thought that was a scene from Play Station. Then I realized those were normal human beings from Portugal. Then I was worried for Fenerbahce because these men can easily destroy all plans of head coach Aykut Kocaman and defensive style of football understanding. I am like hearing all the criticisms of the newspapers that will be published tomorrow.


Head coach Aykut Kocaman has such offensive players in his squad and he makes the whole fans upset as he tried to establish his boring style of defending football since he took over this team. Benfica do not only consist of good players but they are also a collective team and the players know each other very well. For them it is so easy to get organized during the match. IMO Aykut Kocaman will repeat his mistakes and will probably help Benfica to qualify. Considering this is just the first leg, I believe that there is a possibility of a draw therefore betting on Benfica AH -0.25 is safer.
