Beto put Portimonense ahead in the 13th minute, but goals from Chancel Mbemba, Mehdi Taremi and Sergio Oliveira turned the tie around for the Champions. 

Meanwhile, in Denmark, Frank Onyeka played for the entire duration as Midtjylland thrashed title rivals Copenhagen 4-0.

Sory Kaba put Midtjylland in the 36th minute before a goal from Evander Ferreira and Pione Sisto’s brace sealed an emphatic win for the home side.

In Russia, Chidera Ejuke was a second-half substitute as CSKA Moscow moved to the top of Russian Premier League with a 2-0 win over FC Rostov.

Ejuke came on for Arnor Sigurdsson in the 65th minute as goals from Konstantin Kuchaev, and Fedor Chalov were enough to seal the three points for CSKA.

Emmanuel Dennis came off 14 minutes after half-time in Club Brugge’s 3-1 win at Oostende. Dennis was taken off for Youssouph Badji, who scored Club’s third goal.
