Belenenses has been forced to take to the field with just nine players against Benfica as the side deals with a Covid outbreak, leading to farcical scenes and a half-time deficit of seven goals.

Already on the canvass after failing to win any of its opening eight games, Belenenses were forced to take to the field with just nine players, including two goalkeepers, in their starting eleven after 17 players and staff tested positive for Covid-19 in the lead-up to the match.

Despite the lack of players and substitutes, the Primeira Liga match was given the green light to go ahead, which left many onlookers dumbfounded.

The spectacle was labelled (among other things) a “disgrace” and “shambles” as the undermanned side was demolished from the outset by Benfica, which was aiming to return to the top of the Primeira Liga table.

The match got off to a horrible start for Belenenses, with an own goal coming via Eduardo Kau in the first minute.

Goalkeeper Joao Monteiro was forced to start at right-back for the side as a result of the player shortage.

The side took to the field in a 5-3-0 formation.
