Liga Sagres wrap: Benfica, Braga post wins

29 September 2012 00:43

Benfica kept their unbeaten start to the Liga Sagres season going strong on Friday, coming from behind to defeat Pacos de Ferreira 2-1.

The Portuguese powerhouse found themselves behind after only seven minutes at the Estadio da Mata Real when Cicero scored after a quick move down the left flank.

Benfica did not have to wait long for a response, with Brazilian attacker Lima capitalising on a bad mistake from Pacos de Ferreira goalkeeper Cassio to level proceedings just a minute later.

And it was the Brazilian who secured all three points for the visitors, scoring his second goal on 71 minutes.

Elsewhere on Friday, Braga had second-half goals from Eder and Hugo Viana to thank for their 2-0 triumph at Vitoria Guimaraes.

The results mean Benfica top the Liga Sagres table on 11 points, one clear of Porto who have a game in hand, while Braga are in third place just a point behind the leaders.
