Portuguese newspaper front page headlines and reaction to Benfica losing to PAOK in UCL | Abola, Record, O Jogo & Correio da Manha

By Soccer Blog | Sep 16, 2020

Here is a look at the front pages from the big Portuguese newspapers (Abola, O Jogo, Record and Correio da Manha) on 16 September, 2020 following the PAOK 2-1 Benfica Champions League loss that saw SLB knocked out of the Champions. Benfica invested nearly 80 million euros in the summer to strengthen their squad, but were knocked out by a goal from Andrija Zivkovic, a player they themselves released on a free transfer to cut costs. Not surprisingly, Zivkovic’s past connection with Benfica and the economic damage to SLB due to the goal dominated the newspapers.
