Portuguese pair pick up points at the Park

25 September 2015

Benfica and Porto were both victorious in Premier League International Cup fixtures played at Adams Park on Thursday and Friday.

Benfica overcame Celtic in front of a crowd of 366 on Thursday evening, with the Portuguese side netting a goal in each half before a late strike gave the Scots hope of salvaging a draw.

Meanwhile on Friday evening, Porto survived a second-half red card shown to Jorge Fernandes to defeat FC Schalke 04, with Ismael Leon's scrambled effort enough to secure the victory, with a crowd of 118.

The games followed Athletic Club Bilbao's 3-1 success against Borussia Moenchengladbach earlier this month, while PSV take on Villarreal in the same under-21 competition at Adams Park on Tuesday 27th October (k.o. 7pm).
