The Brazilian midfielder came on as a substitute at halftime but had more shots than any other Besiktas player.The result left both teams trailing Napoli, which came from behind to defeat 10-man Dynamo Kiev 2-1 in Ukraine.Argentine striker Franco Cervi had put Benfica ahead in the 12th minute after Besiktas goalkeeper Tolga Zengin could only parry an angled shot by Argentine midfielder Eduardo Salvio.Its a draw that feels like a victory, Portugal forward Ricardo Quaresma said. I thought we showed too much respect for Benfica at the beginning, but perhaps that was due to inexperience. Some of our players are in their first campaign in this tournament. But the second half was different and we played more like our natural selves.Benfica waas in control for most of the match at the Estadio da Luz, but allowed some chances for Besiktas at the end.dddddddddddd One of the best opportunities fell to substitute Cenk Tosun, who had a free shot from inside the area but sent the ball over the crossbar.Atiba Hutchinson also came close with a firm header that prompted a difficult save by Benfica goalkeeper Ederson early in injury time.Goncalo Guedes nearly added to Benficas lead in the 84th when he had only the goalkeeper to beat, but his shot was blocked by Zengins left foot.Benfica played without striker Jonas, the teams top scorer last season, who was nursing a right foot injury.It was the first match between the teams in the European competition. Benfica lost to Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals last season, while Besiktas is trying to reach the knockout round for the first time.Benfica next plays at Napoli, while Besiktas hosts Dynamo Kiev.
