Benfica's B team travelled this morning to Alcochete to face rivals Sporting B in the 21st matchweek of the Segunda Liga where the reds won 1-0.

Benfica scored in the first 3 minutes via a venemous shot by Fábio Cardoso, who lashed at the ball inside the area giving the opposition no chance at a block or a potential save.

Sporting were unable to react to the early goal and the match literally ended as it started.

With this crucial win Benfica have now amassed 35 points and sit in 5th place, 3 points off from top side Tondela.
