Benfica knock out of Europa League in Germany

Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Benfica 2-0 at the Waldstadion to advance to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals.

An offside Filip Kostic goal and Sebastian Rode strike clinched a famous victory, the result overturning the first leg 4-2 defeat in Lisbon as the German club go through on away goals. 

Ante Rebic was outstanding for Frankfurt, but it was a total team effort roared on by an passionate and raucous home support. 

The Portuguese club will lament the offside goal but were largely second best throughout the contest.
