Benfica, Barça’s next rival in the Champions League group stage, drew two-all with Academia Coimbra. The Lisbon-based side had a tough go of it as they weren’t able to score the equaliser until the 86th minute of the match. Despite conceding two points, the result is sweet seeing that Benfica played with 10 men throughout most of the second half (Rodrigo Galo was sent off).

The team managed by Jorge Jesús will take on Ferreira on Friday before they face off against Barça in the Champions League (Tuesday, October 2).
