2024 semi-final highlights: Benfica 4-4 Palma (3-4 pens)

In brief: Their dramatic home triumph last season was not only Palma's first major honour but also the first European title won by any sports club from Mallorca. Although several key players from last year left, summer arrivals included the hugely experienced Rômulo, who has played for both Barça and Benfica (with whom he lost to Palma in the 2023 semi-finals).

Still yet to lose a European game, it looked like Palma would at least fall to their 2023 semi-final victims Benfica when 4-2 down around three minutes from time. But they fought back and club stalwart Carlos Barrón saved Benfica's last two kicks in the shoot-out.
