UEFA Cup, fourth round, second leg

Getafe 1 - Benfica 0

Getafe are through to the quarter finals of the UEFA Cup after beating Benfica for the second time in a week. With ten players out through injury and suspension, Michael Laudrup was forced to put out a makeshift side. But although Makukula hit the post early on, Gavilán could have put the locals ahead a couple of times before the break. Tena and Albín both went close after the restart, with Rui Costa testing Abbondanzieri at the other end soon afterwards. With twelve minutes to go however De la Red sent Albín away for him to chip the keeper and wrap things up. Getafe were in to the last eight, setting new standards for the club in their first ever season in Europe. (12.03.08)
