Ukrainian Trubin among the top-2 best players of the Portuguese El Clasico: he helped Benfica win. Video
Ukraine's goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin showed a great game in his first classic match of the Portuguese championship, in which his Benfica team hosted Porto. Our compatriot helped his team win a crucial 1-0 victory.
The former Shakhtar Donetsk player appeared on the field from the first minutes. The start of the match was not the most successful for Benfica, but the visitors were left in the minority in the 19th minute. However, this moment did not particularly affect the course of the match, as Porto continued to approach the opponent's goal regularly.
As a result, Trubin helped his teammates out twice: first, he came out of the gate and took the ball from the opponent, and then he pulled a tight shot from 20 meters out. The visitors managed to draw the first half quite calmly.
In the second half, Benfica showed an incredible performance. They did not give their principal opponent any space, with legendary Angel Di Maria scoring the winning goal in the 68th minute.
Trubin received the second-highest rating among all players from the Who Scored portal, which is 7.5. Anatoliy made two saves and made 77% of successful passes.
