33' Cardozo

86' Markovic

Associação Académica de Coimbra x SL Benfica
A very casual performance from Benfica despite scoring three goals in a game where the Lisbon side didn't step out of third gear.

In a ground traditionally difficult for Benfica, Jesus' side were lacking the punch to create chances but Cardozo's low shot from outside of the area was pinpointed to the goalkeeper's far post to take the lead and turn fortunes around.

The Paraguayan striker was involved once again when he got in between two defenders and forced Goiano to head the ball into his own net, despite not having the slightest clue when facing the goal.

Jesus' half-time team talk got much easier with a two goal advantage.

Benfica managed the game at a comfortable pace but were far from the team that last season took on all competitions by storm.

Markovic installed some pace and flair when he was brought on and provided the much needed 3rd goal to finish off Académica. Ruben Amorim's through ball was toe poked by the Serbian over the keeper and will give him a boost of confidence after returning from injury.

Benfica now travel to Athens to face Olympiacos for the 4th matchday of the Champions League.
