Alex Grimaldo celebrates the first goal of Benfica.

The Greeks close by the 1-0 defeat in the group stage in the Champions League without a single point. The Portuguese were already assured of the third place in group E, where Bayern Munich and Ajax had qualified for the knock-out stages.

In the second half, the Swiss hit the crossbar and his Spanish team-mate Álex Grimaldo missed a shot for open goal after goalkeeper Vasilios Launch omspeeld had. In the final stage, made Grimaldo from a free kick yet the 1-0.

AEK ended the game with ten man. Konstantinos Galanopoulos picked up within five minutes, two yellow cards and had to of the field.
