SL Benfica did not falter with their target in sight as they strode through to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals with victory at FC Girondins de Bordeaux, two-goal Óscar Cardozo making the difference on the night.

The only club left flying the flag for Portugal in Europe – and 1-0 victors in the round of 16 first leg – Benfica doubled their aggregate lead through Jardel on 30 minutes. Cheick Diabaté rattled in Bordeaux's first goal of the tie with 16 minutes to go, but the Eagles retook the advantage seconds later through substitute Cardozo. The Paraguay forward then clinched his double in added time following a late Jardel own goal.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
  • Goal
    90+2
    Óscar Cardozo (Benfica) scores!
    The forward gets his second with another ice-cool finish. Pouncing on a miscontrolled ball, the Paraguayan steps inside André Poko on the edge of the area and calmly places his finish into the net.
  • Goal
    90+1
    Jardel (Benfica) scores an own goal.
    It is most likely too little too late for the hosts, who are given the the slimmest of chances as the scorer of Benfica's first deflects into his own net.
  • Yellow Card
    90
    Maxi Pereira (Benfica) is shown a yellow card.
  • Substitution
    88
    Maxi Pereira (in) - Salvio (out) (Benfica)
