Benfica went to Vizela for the game of the 9th round of the I League, and after the defeat against Bayern, one would have expected a Benfica with determination and desire to score early, but it wasn’t like that.
The team from Lisbon, tired and affected by the defeat in the Champions League, found Vizela entered the game with a desire to surprise the leader, well organized created many difficulties for Benfica.
Pressured by Sporting and FC Porto, who were leaders in the condition, it was Odysseas, who was avoiding bigger problems, and the end of the first half came with a null, and it could have been Vizela who celebrated at half-time.
Jorge Jesus’ team came from half-time more willing to score and explore more the wings through the speed of Diogo Gonçalves, but Vizela got the job done with a cohesive defence, on 70 minutes the Benfica coach makes three changes, dissatisfied with the result, Radonjić, Gonçalo Ramos and Everton, later it would be Pizzi and Taarabt to go to the game.
It was even Radonjić who started the goal, passing through two opponents, passing to Pizzi who, on the right, crossed for Rafa to score in the last minute of added time.
Benfica returns to the lead, with one more point than their rivals.
