SL Benfica beat Club Brugge 2-0 at the Jan Breydelstadion in the first leg of their Champions League knockout tie.

Brugge started well early on but couldn't make their chances on the break count.

Denis Odoi thought he found the opener just before half time but the goal was disallowed for offside.
