Sporting and Benfica draw in the derby, leaving Estoril further in the lead

Benfica and Sporting tied (1-1) today, Tuesday, in the match in the 11th round of the Champions League qualifying stage. The first half was characterized by balance and a little danger. The best chance went to the Reds, as Paulo Ocon headed against the post after a free kick. In the second half, both teams were more daring and the goalkeepers were forced to rush towards the goal. Benfica opened the scoring in the 50th minute, as Joao Milro took advantage of a mistake by Sporting goalkeeper Diogo Clara, who was unable to catch the ball, and put the ball into the net. The Lions tried to react and were able to score the equalizer in the 74th minute through Rodrigo Marquez, who fired a direct free kick. The ball even deflected away from the Reds' defense before entering Veljkovic's goal. In the 83rd minute, Benfica's score dropped to 10 after Joao Fonseca received a direct red card for committing a foul and preventing Rodrigo Marquez from being isolated and in a prime position to score. With this result, Sporting raised its score to 22 points, 3 points behind leaders Estoril, who defeated Gil Vicente on Tuesday morning. Benfica equaled Gelistas's tally of 9 points, remaining in last place in the table.
