Benfica 1 : 0 Zenit St. Petersburg

Benfica struck in stoppage time to take a 1-0 win from the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash against Zenit St Petersburg.

The Portuguese side had almost failed to make their possession count as Nicolas Gaitan had the best chance of the game but his double effort was blocked by Zenit goalkeeper Yury Lodygin. 

But, minutes after Domenico Criscito was sent off late on for a second yellow card, Jonas leaped highest to head home and give Benfica the advantage.
