Twente played host to Benfica in another qualifier and the Dutch side takes a sixth-minute lead through Luuk de Jong.

Benfica, who won the old European Cup twice, battled back with Oscar Cardozo unleashing a curling strike to stun the keeper. It's 1-all.

Benfica then cruises ahead. A textbook combination tears the Twente defence apart before Nolito finishes the play in an empty net. 2-1.

However, Benfica were denied a win 10 minutes from time, when Costa Rican Bryan Ruiz nods home a deep cross and the game ends 2-2.
