Benfica, who completed the qualifying phase of the group stage of the champions, and started the championship at a good level. It comes from a less achieved phase, with the defeat against Bayern at home, a defeat that is not surprising in the quality of both teams, seemed to return to the path of victories with the victory against Aves, but ends up drawing in Chaves, in a difficult terrain after the postponement of 1 h of game, and in which after scoring the first goal collapsed before a Chaves control.
