Worth mentioning: The teams of Benfica and Lille have met three times throughout the history so far. In 2005 they were drawn in the same Champions League group, with the first ever H2H clash taking place at Estadio da Luz in the Portuguese capital and ending in a slender 1:0 victory in Benfica’s taste. The reverse match in France finished with no goals and no winner in a boring 0:0 draw, with that also being the case in the most-recent meeting in 2012 when the two sides met in a friendly game.
