After seeing his opening goal cancelled out by a Kleber Pinheiro penalty against Estoril in the first-leg of their semi-final tie, Benfica's Kostas Mitroglou popped up with the decisive goal.

Now on 24 goals in 33 games in all competitions for the Portuguese team, the 28-year-old has been crucial this season. This time, however, the former Fulham striker had his team-mates to thank, as they made it easy with an impressive move.

Stringing together some nice and simple passes, including a backheel, the ball found Mitroglou in the box to apply a simple finish.

As Benfica sit top of the table and Estoril remain near the relegation zone, the Lisbon side will fancy their chances of increasing their lead in the reverse leg at home.
