Rodrigo gives Benfica edge

28 November 2013, 10:44

Brussels - Substitute Rodrigo scored a 90th-minute winner Wednesday as Benfica beat Anderlecht 3-2 in a Champions League thriller.

Anderlecht defender Chancel Mbemba scored a goal and an own goal as the Belgian champion's European campaign ended.

The result meant Anderlecht remained anchored to the bottom of Group C and Benfica went level on points with Olympiakos which lost 2-1 at Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbemba opened the scoring and then deflected a shot by Nicolas Gaitan into his own goal in the 52nd minute to give Benfica the lead after Nemjana Matic had equalized in the 34th.

Massimo Bruno levelled again in the 77th minute when he turned and fired in a low shot that beat Artur at his near post.

Rodrigo sealed the points for Benfica on a late break.
