(Benfica-Juventus 4-3) Frederic Orsnes (26) has proven himself strongly in the Benfica team and played a role in impressive victories against Porto and Juventus in a few days.
– He played consistently in the last period in a somewhat unfamiliar position, but he did it in a good way with great safety for the position and playing sure passes. He gets to play — and in a team with real wind in the sails, national team coach Ståle Solbakken writes in a text message to VG.
Orsnes played the entire match as a left winger in the 4-3 win over Juventus. The former Molde player helped win the penalty kick that led to a 2-1 lead, after Juventus’ Juan Cuadrado tackled the Norwegian in a duel. It was Joao Mario who scored the penalty kick.
Portuguese journalist Abola Luís Simões awards Frederic Orsens 7 out of 10 points on the stock exchange.
Top scorer Rafa Silva was the best player on the field, and the combinations between him and Orsnes were very good. Luis Simoes said the Norwegian had a great match.
What do you think of Orsnes’ match with Benfica this fall?
– It was better. He is very important in the offensive part, often with Rafa Silva.
Even Roger Schmidt (Benfica coach) would be surprised by Orsnes’ performance as a left winger. He presses and attacks spaces and knows how to keep the ball and collect it. It’s not creativity, but it gives all the guarantees, wrote Tomas da Cuna, commentator for Eleven Sports in Portugal, on Twitter.
Antonio Silva put Benfica ahead early on, before Moise Kean equalized soon after. Halfway through the match, Benfica suffered a mess with the Italian giants, who had to win to have any chance of advancing in the Champions League.
