FC Twente knocked out of Champions League
Dutch soccer club FC Twente failed to get through to the group phase of the Champions League on Wednesday. The squad trained by Co Adriaanse lost 3-1 to Benfica in the play-offs. Their first match against Benfica at home in Enschede ended in a 2-2 draw last week.
Benfica took the lead just after half-time with a goal from Axel Witsel. About an hour into the match, Luisao made it 2-0, with Witsel scoring again afterwards. Shortly before the final whistle, Bryan Ruiz got Twente’s only goal of the game.
