There was high drama on the night as two goals in two minutes from Nacer Chadli in the second half cancelled out Ezequiel Garay's opener to leave us needing one goal to force extra time.

Sadly, though, there was to be no fairytale as a late Lima penalty saw Benfica avoid a rare home defeat and progress into the last eight with a 5-3 aggregate win.
