BENFICA STAYS IN FIRST IN LIGA AND FINDS OUT THEIR OPPOSITION IN CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GROUP
BENFICA IN FIRST PLACE AFTER VICTORY IN NACIONAL
In a game that has been usually difficult for opposing teams in Madeira, the Eagles came out victorious 4-0. They were able to score two goals in each half and Salvio continued rolling with a goal and assist. Seferovic got the team on the board first with a nice set up from Salvio. Salvio added to the scoring right before the first half ended to give them a 2-0 lead going into halftime. As the game worn on Benfica kept control of the possession and put the game out of reach when Grimaldo scored in the 76th minute. Rafa put the game away in extra time for the team’s fourth goal of the game. SLB has gone undefeated in the first eight games of the season for the first time since 1990.
