Benfica midfielder Nicolas Gaitan scored his first goal of the season in spectacular fashion. Gaitan opened the scoring against Estoril from a corner kick 37 minutes into the match with a flying backheel volley that floated over his teammate's head and into the far side of the net, bringing back memories of Gianfranco Zola against Norwich.

Benfica went on to win 3-1.
