Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 J. Lingard gets yellow.
Lingard becomes the latest player to receive a yellow card. Benfica have been presented with a free-kick deep inside their own half of the pitch, but they may not have enough time to take it.
90' +3 Lukaku steps up and shoots from the resulting free-kick, but his thumping strike flies into the wall of red shirts camped in front of him before deflecting over to the right wing, where Svilar is easily able to deal with the danger near the corner flag.
90' +2 S. McTominay enters the game and replaces H. Mkhitaryan.
Luisão gets a second yellow card and is sent off.
Ouch! Luisao loses the ball and lunges into McTominay, sending the youngster flying to the ground and leaving the referee with no choice but to show the veteran a second yellow card. It's gone from bad to worse for the home side...
90' +1 Mkhitaryan has made way for Scott McTominay in United's last substitution of the game.
90' The fourth official has indicated that there will be four minutes of added time.
89' Another attempted Cervi cross results in another corner for Benfica. Once again, the substitute's cross into the box is a decent one but can only find Valencia. The Ecuadorian heads the ball out of the penalty area and sets up Zivkovic to shoot, but the latter's rushed half-volley is poorly hit and sails well wide of its intended target.
88' Vital interception by Dias! It looks as Martial is going to be able to burst into the Benfica box after a piece of sloppy play by Douglas, but Dias does really well to close down and dispossess the Frenchman before he's able to do so.
86' Cervi does well over on the left flank once again and wins yet another corner for the home side. This time the Argentine's cross in from the set-piece is sent in a little deeper, but Smalling is easily able to get ahead of a group of red shirts before clearing the danger.
84' Big chance for Dias! Cervi immediately gets involved in the game as he quickly wins Benfica a corner over on the left wing. It's swung into the middle of the penalty area and picks out Dias, who reaches the ball in acres of space but can't guide his side-footed shot on target.
83' F. Cervi enters the game and replaces E. Salvio.
J. Lingard enters the game and replaces Mata.
Meanwhile, Mata has made way for Jesse Lingard for United.
Benfica have made their third and final alteration of the evening, with Franco Cervi coming on to take the place of Salvio.
