Mixed fortune for Portuguese clubs


There were mixed fortunes for Portuguese clubs in last night’s Champions League action. 

Sporting claimed a comfortable 3-2 win in Greece against Olympiakos, but Benfica suffered an unexpected setback in Lisbon where they were beaten 2-1 by CSKA Moscow. 

In tonight’s action, FC Porto will be welcoming Turkish side Besiktas, who will be fielding Portuguese internationals and former Porto players Pepe and Ricardo Quaresma.
