Benfica Vs Liverpool clash is one to remember after what appeared to be provocative show from a section of Benfica fans. In what sought to be unwarranted behaviour from them, a section of Benfica fans pelted metal poles on Luis Dias on the fateful night. Diaz who had just scored and provided an assist during the game was the target immediately the last whistle of the game was blown.
A group of Benfica fans were spotted throwing metal poles on the former Porto forward in an attempt to cause hard to the player. Diaz who left Porto for Liverpool in the January transfer window has managed to score several goals for the Reds and provided quite a number of assists across all competitions. The Columbian was the only Liverpool man targeted by the dowdy Benfica fans.
However, Liverpool managed to grab a hard fought win against Benfica in Portugal. Three goals by Sadio Mane, Ibrahima Konate and Luis Diaz handed the Reds an advantage. Liverpool are set to host Benfica for the second leg of the quarter finals at Anfield as they seek to square it off and book their place in the Semi finals of the Champions League.
