Benfica's strong second half leads to win over Belenenses

Benfica continued their perfect run to start the season with a 2-0 win over Belenenses away from home at Jamor. Benfica faced a strong defending Belenenses squad in the smaller Lisbon derby and needed two second half goals to earn the victory. Benfica opened the scoring with an early second half goal from Rafa Silva set up by a Pizzi back heel and then Rafa returned the favour, assisting on  Pizzi's extra time goal. The tandem have been spectacular to start the season and Benfica managed to earn their second consecutive clean sheet to start the season. Next up for Benfica will be "O Classico" against FC Porto at the Estadio da Luz on August 24.
