The referee brings an entertaining game to an end, and Benfica's gutsy second-half display earns them a share of the spoils at home. Verissimo's side had to come back from behind on two occasions, but they have something to play for in the second leg. Tadic's neat volley opened the scoring in the 18th minute, before Haller's own goal levelled matters. The Ivory Coast international made amends straight away, firing into an empty net after Vertonghen had cleared a cross back towards his own goal. In the second 45 minutes, Ajax lost their grip on the game, and Benfica rallied in front of their passionate fans, with substitute Yaremchuk heading home after Ramos' original shot had been saved.
