SL Benfica took a tentative step towards their third UEFA Europa League quarter-final appearance in four seasons with a narrow victory against a determined FC Girondins de Bordeaux team.

Goalkeeper Cédric Carrasso's unlucky 21st-minute own goal proved the difference, but the French side's coach Francis Gillot will have seen enough to suggest his charges can respond at the Stade Chaban-Delmas in a week's time.
