35-Year-Old Goalkeeper Benfica
Cesar conceded three goals, including a fumble for the first, as Benfica lost 3-1 Wednesday to Bayer Leverkusen in Champions League Group C.
Brazil's World Cup goalkeeper had a torrid game. This was his first Champions League game since March 2012 and it showed, often looking nervous and indecisive. Although making a good save after five minutes, Cesar didn't instill confidence in his defense and failed to hold onto Heung-Min Son's strike which led to Stefan Kiessling's goal. Cesar has now made two appearances for Benfica since his summer move and has failed to keep a clean sheet.
