Benfica

Benfica’s situation in the championship is not the best, but they managed to achieve success in the Champions League. In the group stage, the club fought with Bayern, Barcelona, and Dynamo Kiev. Initially, Benfica were not the favorites to qualify from the group, but they did a miracle and managed to get out of 2nd place without giving Barcelona a ticket to the playoffs.
