Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    A brilliant PSG performance comes to an end. They were inspired by their captain Zlatan Ibrahimović throughout, who grabbed two goals either side of Marquinhos' strike, to give the hosts a 3-0 lead within 30 minutes that they never relinquished.
  • 90+3
    Cardozo (Benfica) misses the target.
  • 88
    Luisão (Benfica) makes a save.
  • 88
    Rabiot (Paris) has an effort on goal.
  • 86
    Van der Wiel (Paris) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Siqueira (Benfica).
  • 86
    Luisão (Benfica) makes a save.
    A good block from the Benfica captain is required to keep Blaise Matuidi from adding to PSG's lead after his shot from distance. The hosts have been completely dominant tonight and it seems everyone thinks they can get on the score sheet.
  • 86
    Matuidi (Paris) has an effort on goal.
  • 84
    Sulejmani (Benfica) delivers the corner.
  • 81

  • 81
    Sirigu (Paris) makes a save.
    Another comfortable save for the 26-year-old as substitute André Gomes tries his luck from distance with a low strike. Surely even a goal from the Eagles now would be too little too late?
  • Substitution
    78
    Camara (in) - Alex (out) (Paris)
    Brazilian Alex, making his 60th UEFA Champions League appearance, is off having combined well with Marquinhos to keep Óscar Cardozo quiet.
  • 74
    Artur (Benfica) makes a save.
    A fine double save from the Brazillian. A cross falls to Edinson Cavani in the six yard box, and he side-foots the ball goalwards, but the keeper does well to block and then shows great reactions to kick away the striker's rebound.
  • 74
    Artur (Benfica) makes a save.
  • 74
    Cavani (Paris) has an effort on goal.

  • Substitution
    70
    Rabiot (in) - Verratti (out) (Paris)

  • 68
    André Gomes (Benfica) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Matuidi (Paris).

    Sulejmani (Benfica) has an effort on goal.
  • 67
    Sirigu (Paris) makes a save.

    Sulejmani (in) - Gaitán (out) (Benfica)

    Nicolás Gaitán sends in a free kick but PSG captain and goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimović is back in his own penalty area to hack the ball clear.
  • 57
    Pérez (Benfica) misses the target.
    The striker has had a very quite game so far but he picks up the ball well outside the area and under no pressure shoots from 30 yards but his effort sails high and wide of Salvatore Sirigu's goal.
  • 57
    Pérez (Benfica) takes the corner.
  • 56
    Pérez (Benfica) takes the corner.
    After PSG play possession football for what seems like an age Benfica eventually work to nick the ball away and win a corner but the cross comes to nothing.

  • 52
    André Almeida (Benfica) is penalised for a foul on Lavezzi (Paris).

    Marković (in) - Djuričić (out) (Benfica)
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
    Benfica have a mountain to climb in the second half after a dominant display from PSG so far. They will need an early goal if they have any chance of taking points home from their visit to Paris.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
    Brilliant performance from PSG so far. Zlatan Ibrahimović opened the scoring after five minutes before Marquinhos doubled the lead. The hosts' captain claimed his second before the half-hour mark but Benfica are yet to test Salvatore Sirigu at the other end.

  • 42
    Gaitán (Benfica) takes the corner.
  • 42
    Matuidi (Paris) makes a save.

    25
    Marquinhos (Paris) scores!

    The 31-year-old is always brimming with confidence and shows it with an ambitious effort from 30 yards out, after skipping past Nemanja Matić, but his low strike skids wide.
  • 19
    Matić (Benfica) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Verratti (Paris).
  • 19
    Siqueira (Benfica) misses the target.
    First sight of goal for the away side. The full-back bursts down the wing to get on the end of a through ball but the pass is slightly behind him in the box and he fires his shot wide. Encouraging for Benfica.
