  • Was that offside? It certainly looked like it was - but Shchennikov opens the scoring for Moscow, after that Eliseu deflection finds Natcho who slips the through ball to the winger lurking just inside the box, who calmly slots it into the bottom right corner. 1-0 to the hosts.

  • A free-kick for Moscow now, right in front of the goal area as Dzagoev is brought down by Luisao collecting a Vitinho pass. Wernbloom reacts angrily to it and is booked for confronting the opposition, forcing the referee to haul him away.

  • An early change now, enforced by injury - Shchennikov, the goalscorer, is limping badly, and departs for Kirill Nababkin to a round of applause.

  • Oh no! That's not how Benfica wanted it to go! On another counter-attack, Moscow hare down the right touchline with Fernandes who crosses into Vitinho by the close post. The Brazilian gets up to the edge and tries to turn and curl it back to Wernbloom - only for it to take a deflection off a desperate Jardel slide tackle and squeeze in around Varela. Disaster for the visitors - that could very well be their European adventure for 2017 over.

  • It's a booking for Luisao now after a hefty challenge on Vasin. Benfica have been deflated all of a sudden by that unfortunate goal, looking floppy in midfield.

  • A dangerous free-kick for Moscow to give away here - Nababkin is booked for a challenge on Jonas 20 yards out on the centre-left of field and the visitors have a great chance to pull one back.
