Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    And there goes the final whistle. A commanding performance from Benfica as they finally get their first win in the UEFA Champions League group stage. It was substitute Óscar Cardozo that changed the game, coming on at half time to score both goals. He could have had a hat-trick too, only to miss a penalty.
  • 90+4
    Bruno César (Benfica) delivers the free-kick wide.
    Bruno César again comes just a whisker away from finding the back of the net with the resulting free-kick. Great effort.
