Benfica can win in Barcelona – Jesus

Jorge Jesus, the Benfica coach, insists his team can win in Barcelona and take their place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Benfica have to match Celtic’s result at home to Spartak Moscow to qualify but have a tough ask on their hands given they are travelling to Barcelona.

“Celtic may even qualify but if we don’t count Barcelona, Spartak and us are the strongest of the group, in my opinion,” Jesus said.

“I’m sick of repeating that Barcelona are the best in the world. Still, we go to Barcelona with a lot of confidence.

“The truth is they have one player who makes the difference and, without him, Barcelona are not as strong. Whether or not (Lionel) Messi plays, we go there to win.”
