The hosts have qualified for the knockouts for the first time after finishing a point behind Group B winners Porto.

That extended their unbeaten run across competitions to six games. Benfica, meanwhile, were eliminated from the Taca de Portugal quarterfinals by Braga on penalties in their last outing.
