-- MitroGOL Strikes in the Champions League --
Kostas Mitroglou struck again for Benfica! Mitroglou led his side to a 1-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League Round of 16.
Kostas Mitroglou was once again the hero for Benfica as he led his side to a 1-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League Round of 16. Mitroglou scored from close range (off a corner) to give his side the 1-0 lead in the 48th minute.
Borussia Dortmund, who had Sokratis Papastathopoulos in their starting lineup, wasted golden opportunities to pull level and take an important away goal back home for the second leg. However, Aubameyang failed to convert from the penalty spot in the 58th minute and was unable to find the back of the net on two one-on-one opportunities in on goal.
Mitroglou’s goal and the clean sheet give Benfica the advantage in light of the second leg to be held on March 3.
