Benfica's Ukrainian goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin managed to save a penalty in his team's victorious match with Portimonense in the 6th round of the Portuguese championship.
This happened in the second half with a score of 1:2 in favor of Lisbon.
In the first half, Alexander Ba and Petar Musa scored for Benfica, but the hosts reduced the gap in the 56th minute through the efforts of Elio Varela.
In the 60th minute of the meeting, the referee awarded a penalty kick to the visitors - the defender of the "eagles" Moratu played with his hand in his penalty area. But Trubin saved his team from a goal, parrying Rildo's shot into the lower right corner.
Soon Benfica scored for the third time - in the 66th minute, the final score of the match was set by the former player of Shakhtar Donetsk David Neres.
After this victory, the Lisbon team climbed to second place in the Portuguese championship with 15 points and is only one point behind the leader Porto. Portimonense are 5th with 16 points.
