Benfica had to overcome some nervous moments in the final quarter of the match, but the Lisbon club managed to hold on as they downed Leixoes 2-1. An Elvis own goal and a match winner by forgotten man Nuno Gomes was just enough to edge out the visitors as Rodrigo Silva’s goal for Leixoes made the match intense heading to the final whistle.

The last quarter of the match might have not been pretty as the hosts were reduced to 10 men, but when it is all settled, Benfica came away with three important points as the pressure now shifts to the Dragao where Porto will host Sporting in the classico.

Leixoes strolled into the Luz with impressive credentials as the Matosinhos side had not lost a league match since December and had not suffered a defeat to any of the Liga’s big three thus far. As for Benfica, the Eagles were coming off an emotional loss to Sporting last weekend and needed to get back on track in order to keep their championship aspirations alive
