Once he had regained his senses, Gonul will have been informed of Fenerbahçe's 3-2 aggregate loss, as Benfica progressed to the Europa League final.

Former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt cancelled out Gaitán's opener from the penalty spot, however an Óscar Cardozo double set up a Benfica-Chelsea final in Amsterdam in two weeks time.
