As if all that wasn’t bad enough, Brazilian Eduardo Kau shot the ball into his own goal after just 24 seconds. After that, Darwin Núñez (3x), Haris Seferovic (2x) and Julian Weigl were also accurate on behalf of Benfica before half time.
It didn’t get much worse than the 0-7 halfway through for the poor home team. After Belenenses, the number 16 of the Portuguese league, only had six players left in the second half, the game was stopped. The home team came out of the dressing room after halftime with seven players and then quickly lost another player with an injury.
Belenenses has been hit by a corona outbreak. Thirteen players and four staff members have been struck down by the corona virus. As a result, the club was only able to field two goalkeepers and seven field players.
