Benfica have produced a list of the most corrupt clubs in Europe with Rangers/Sevco coming in at number 16!
This week it was announced that Benfica’s reserve side will play Sevco in a glamour friendly in Canada during the October winter break but that money spinner could now be in doubt with a probable boycott by Ibrox fans .

Portuguese football has been hit hard by the money pouring into certain clubs across Europe which has put Financial Fair Play on the sidelines.
Benfica have been able to cash in fetching some great transfer fees for players but the days of competing at the sharp end of the Champions League are over.
On Tuesday night Benfica lost 2-1 at home to CSKA Moscow and now face an uphill struggle for progress in a Champions League alongside Manchester United and Basel.
Whether Benfica intend raising the matter within UEFA remains to be seen but by highlighting the issue on their TV channel the growing disillusionment of fans with the Champions League is being given legitimacy.
