[ad#m1] Estadio da Luz, Lisbon | 4 Apr 13 | 2013 UEFA Europa League
Newcastle started the match brilliantly as Papiss Cisse scored early in the first half through a killer assist from Sissoko. An enthralling match which was marred for the Geordies as they made some serious errors.
Davide Santon made an awful back pass towards Krul which was collected by Lima who shot home from an acute angle and then a stupid hand ball from Steven Taylor gave Benfica the penalty which Cardozo scored.
Thus, Benfica and now have more than good enough chance to progress.
