Benfica playmaker Nicolas Gaitan feels he will get a sense of home when he takes to the pitch tomorrow night at Fenerbahce.

While many players wilt in the atmosphere at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium, Gaitan believes there are similarities between what he will encounter and what he became used to when playing for Argentine giants Boca Juniors.


The Lisbon club have enjoyed a fantastic season so far, going unbeaten in the Primeira Liga, and Gaitan is eyeing further success in Europe after dispatching Newcastle United in the last round.

“I started my football career at Boca Juniors in Argentina. I heard that the atmosphere here is very similar to Boca,” he told reporters.

“The colours of Fenerbahce and Boca are also the same, so it will actually be a familiar atmosphere to me.”

Speaking about the game, Gaitan said he felt that he and his team-mates had enough within them to secure their passage to the final.

He added: “Fenerbahce are a very well-organised team with skilful players. But I think we’re the better side and because of this we want to progress to the final.”
