Squad List: Benfica x Feirense

Benfica got back to winning ways by defeating Paços de Ferreira 2-0 at the Estádio da Luz on Saturday night, to move up to third place in the Liga NOS. Franco Cervi put the Águias ahead in the first-half before Jonas' second-half strike sealed all three points for Rui Vitória's men, bringing to an end a barren spell of three consecutive matches without a victory.
