Benfica, European champions in 1960-61 and 1961-62, will not miss the Europa League quarter-final. The Lisbon team, which had lost 1-0 in the first leg against Dinamo in Zagreb, goes back against the Croatian team, although to get it they had to resort to extra time. The dynamo had become a revelation of the tournament.
The charity crowd suffered much because the goal that equalized the tie, work of Jonas, did not reach until the 71st minute. The road of extra time was opened and taken to the Lisbon team to the quarter thanks to the magnificent goals achieved by Francisco Ferreira (94 ‘) and the Valencian Alex Grimaldo (105’).
