With two matches in two days the U’s fielded a different 11 from the night before.

Benfica U21’s who were doing a tour of the UK taught the yellows a lesson in football. As early mistakes saw the team 2-0 down inside 8 minutes.

It didn’t get any better as the match went on as the team from Portugal slotted another two past the yellows to see the team head home after a 4-0 defeat.

However positives can be taken from the match with the Benfica team playing in their countries 2nd tier of football. The U’s will have learnt alot from this match.
