LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Benfica scored twice in injury time to snatch a dramatic 2-1 win over Gil Vicente on Sunday for its first victory in two rounds of the Portuguese league.

Gil Vicente went ahead through Diogo Viana's 69th-minute goal and looked set to get the away win until Benfica's Lazar Markovic scored two minutes into injury time from a pass by fellow Serbian substitute Filip Djuricic.

Striker Lima completed the comeback a minute later when he headed in substitute Miralem Sulejmani's cross, ensuring Benfica bounced back from its first-round loss.

Also, three-time defending champion FC Porto eased to a 3-0 win at home over Maritimo from goals by Jackson Martinez, Luis "Lica" Pereira, and Joseu Soares.
