The News: Freddy Adu was an unused substitute in Benfica’s 1-0 loss to Celtic last night.

Of Note: A lone Aidan McGeady goal was the difference between the two sides, as the Glasgow club prevailed in a tightly contested Group D Champions League match. With the loss, the pressure is mounting significantly for Benfica and Adu, and they will need points from their next two games against Shakthar Donetsk and AC Milan to have any hope of qualifying for the knockout round. Check out full highlights of the game here.

Up Next: Benfica will try to steady the ship win they face Boavista in the Portuguese League on Sunday. Adu and Benfica are yet to lose in the league this year, while Boavista, by contrast, are winless and hovering near the relegation zone. After the international break, Benfica will host AC Milan in a Champions League match where they must achieve a result.
