FC United 0 - 1 Benfica B

Diogo Gonçalves scored the winner against FC United 8 minutes from full time which saw the Broadhurst Park opening match end 1-0 to the away side.
 
FC United invited Benfica for the special occasion and the Lisbon side were able to send a mix of their B and youth squads, despite playing the League Cup final on the same day and hour in Coimbra.

The Manchester based club successfully hosted the event and created a spectacular atmosphere around the match in their first ever ground, boasting an all standing terrace at one end.

Today was the perfect opportunity to catch up with rivals Sporting B ahead of Sunday’s derby -16:00 BST in Seixal-, in a game which should have easily been at Benfica’s grasp. Marítimo B had just come out from a long winning draught - having lost 5 of their last games and drawn 1 -, sitting at the bottom of the table, second last.
