Guardiola Praises Benfica Defence

share on:

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola believes they are about to go up against the best defence in Europe when they take on Benfica.

Bayern play Benfica in the quarterfinals of the UCL and go up against an attack that has scored 76 times in 28 matches.

But Guardiola’s focus will not be drawn to that well-oiled attack, and he told a pre-match news conference: “I’m impressed with the condition of Benfica.

“They possibly have the best back four in Europe, so it will be an interesting game.

“They are not a defensive team though, they defend very high up the pitch.

“We have two games to reach the semi-finals and we want to focus on our own game, of course a victory is better for us than a defeat.

“For Bayern it’s all about being the best, but it will be a very even match with Benfica, they have had a very good season.”
