Julio Cesar on Neymar, Messi, Brazil's World Cup hopes, life under Mourinho

LISBON -- Julio Cesar is one of the most successful goalkeepers of his generation. The 38-year-old Brazilian international has been with Benfica since 2014, winning three straight Portuguese league titles. Before that, he won the Italian league five times in seven seasons with Inter, as well as the 2010 Champions League.

Capped 87 times by his country, the man from Rio de Janiero state won the 2004 Copa America and two Confederations Cups and was part of Brazil's squads at three World Cups, including...

Man United seize on Benfica's bad luck to edge closer to knockout rounds

MANCHESTER, England -- Here are three quick thoughts after Man United left it late to complete a 2-0 win over Benfica in Champions League matchday 4.

1. Man United on the brink of last 16

Manchester United are just a point away from progressing to the last 16 of the Champions League, and in keeping with recent performances, they earned this 2-0 win over Benfica in the most functional way. It will not live long in the memory, and they had a slice of luck when, just before half-time, Benfica...

Craig Burley justifies Mourinho's choice not to rest players vs. Benfica despite Man United's weekend tilt with Chelsea.
Craig Burley justifies Mourinho's choice not to rest players vs. Benfica despite Man United's weekend tilt with Chelsea.

Manchester United's winning goal at Benfica two weeks ago was utterly bizarre. Marcus Rashford put a routine ball into the penalty area from a free kick, and Mile Svilar should have easily dealt with it. Instead of punching it away, though, the goalkeeper tried to catch it. While doing so, he crossed the line with the ball in his hands. Rarely do fans see such a glaring mistake.

The mishap becomes much more understandable when you take into consideration that it was the first goal Svilar conceded...

Alison Bender and Stewart Robson discuss whether Jose Mourinho was right to criticise Manchester United fans who booed Romelu Lukaku.

Three wins for Manchester United and three defeats for Benfica mean the anticipation around Tuesday's Champions League game between the two sides is flatter than it might be. Though Benfica could still win the group and United could still finish bottom, Jose Mourinho's side are expected to triumph at Old Trafford and clinch their place in the Round of 16.

Having met for the first time in a friendly in the USA in 1963, the clubs have since played 10 times in competitive games. The first meeting took...

Benfica  

Last season Benfica looked a good bet to reach the quarterfinals before Borussia Dortmund emphatically overturned a 1-0 deficit in the round of 16. They should be powerful this time around after setting a new record of 36 Portuguese league titles although there has been the predictable...
