Footballers from Switzerland’s Young Boys, Portugal’s Benfica, and Sweden’s Malmo made it to the group stage of this season’s Champions League on Tuesday. We have recorded the Champions League recap played on last night.
The Young Boys defeated Hungarian Ferencvaros 3-2 in Budapest in the return leg, and they went on with a total of 6-4 match score as they celebrated the same result in the first match in Bern. Zesiger took the lead for the guests in the 4th minute, but until the break, the home team turned it around with goals from Wing in the 18th minute and Mmaeee scored in the 27th minute only to take Fassnacht (56) and Mambimbi (90 + 3) further.
