Waldschmidt and Weigl celebrate with Benfica Mega Season Start
International Luca Waldschmidt and former Dortmund player Julian Weigl have also won the fifth game of the season in the Primeira Division with Benfica Lisbon and helped Portugal’s record champions to the best
start in 38 years. Benfica won the small capital debut against Belenenses 2-0 (1-0) and consolidated the league position ahead of Porto (10)
champion with 15 points. Most recently, Benfica had defeated the first five opponents in the 1982/83 season, winning even eleven games from the start.
Against Belenenses met former Frankfurt residents Haris Seferovic (6th) and Darwin Nunez (75th) for Benfica. The five-time international Weigl was in the starting eleven for the first time this season. Waldschmidt from Freiburg, who had scored four times in the first four games, came as a joker for the first time.
