V. Guimarães x SL Benfica

Benfica suffered their first defeat in the league and also failed to score for the first time this season.

Toscano grabbed the only goal of the game before half-time when his low close range shot was too much for Artur.

Benfica created a couple of chances through Nolito and Cardozo but failed to find the net.
