Benfica showed their prowess in the Champions League with an impressive 5-1 victory over Club Brugge, securing their spot in the quarter-finals with a 7-1 aggregate win.

The game began well for Benfica when Joao Mario scored a beautiful backheel finish after just one minute, but it was ruled offside.

Club Brugge’s Tajon Buchanan posed a threat, but Benfica’s dominance prevailed.

Rafa Silva opened the scoring with a counter-attack goal, followed by Gonçalo Ramos’ successful strike, and another from Ramos in the second half.

Mario scored from the penalty spot for 4-0, and David Neres added a fifth goal for Benfica.

Despite Bjorn Meijer’s consolation goal for Club Brugge, it was an unfortunate night for the Belgian team.
