The assailants ambushed the defender before he got into the house, forcing him to open the door and inside was the defender’s family in a state of panic. The Portuguese Judiciary Police have already started investigations into the incident, although no arrests have been made thus far. Benfica has since released a statement on the same, saying, Mirror reports: “Benfica confirms that its player Nico Otamendi was the victim of a robbery at his home during the early hours of today. “The player and his family are doing well, despite the enormous discomfort generated by the situation they are experiencing. “Benfica asks that the privacy of the player and his family be respected by all the media, pending the completion of the investigations initiated by the authorities.”

The defender played the full 90 minutes as Benfica ran out comfortable 4-1 winners over Famalicao, and arrived home in the wee hours of Monday morning. So far, he has made 55 appearances for the Portuguese outfit since moving to Portugal in the summer of 2020 in from Manchester City in a deal that saw Ruben Dias go the other way.
