Portuguese Champions Benfica, have vowed to help authorities find the perpetrators who stoned the team’s bus in an attack that left two players injured. The players, Andrija Zivkovic and Julian Weigl are currently in a medical facility receiving treatment.

The team’s bus was targeted as it went down a major motorway after Benfica’s match with Tondela at the Estadio da Luz ended in a goalless draw.

Benfica’s game with Tondela was the team’s first competitive game following the resumption of the Primeira Liga after the league had been suspended since March due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
