Borussia (E) missed the victory against Benfica


Borussia (Dortmund) made its first loss in the friendly International Champions Cup. This happened at a meeting with Benfica this night at Heins Stadiam in Pittsburgh. The success of the `Eagles of the Eagles` came after penalties, and in the regular time the two teams did not win a winner, finishing 2-2. In the whistle, the Portuguese beat 4:3. The Germans can be very sorry for not taking a third consecutive victory. They took a solid two-goal lead in the first half, but then made a reversal. Maxim Phillips gave Dortmund the lead in the 20th minute, spotting Jakob Larsen`s landing. Only two minutes later he doubled again after receiving a pass pass behind the defense and volley directed the ball into the door for 2:0. Benfica, however, managed to mobilize through the second part and equalize the score. First in the 51st minute, Andre Almeida received a pass in speed and scored in the far corner. Then in the 69th minute Alfa Semedo took a long shot, which rebounded into a defender, but the Portuguese again took the ball, advanced and was close to the final 2-2. Thus, the winner has to be determined with penalties, as is the tournament regulation. There, the Lizards showed stronger nerves and with 4:3 accurate strokes came to success.

This was the last game for Borussia at the International Champions Cup, with the team coming back to Europe soon and coming to control with Rehn on Aug. 3. Benfica is just starting to play in the tournament, with Juventus next match after two days.
