Benfica reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in six years after a 2-0 home win over Zenit St Petersburg.

Maxi Pereira leveled the aggregate score score at 3-3 in first-half injury time when he slotted home from Axel Witsel's back-heeled pass.

And late substitute Nélson Oliveira added some gloss to the scoreline in the 93rd minute, sending his team through 4-3 on aggregate.
