Academica 0 - 1 Benfica

Benfica moved into the 6th round of the Portuguese Cup (1/8 finals) with an away win against Academica. A head goal by Luisão (that returned to the first team after an injury that took him away from the fields for almost 3 months) at the minute 22 was enough to put Benfica in the next round. But the result doesn't reflect the "eagles" superiority. Simão failed at least two easy goals and the returned Nuno Gomes also. Academica only created danger in a free kick that Bossio managed to defend in the middle of the second half.
Just a note to the unfair red card gived to Simão already in the overtime that will put him away of the next Super League game on sunday against Estrela Amadora.
