A bus carrying the Benfica soccer team was stoned, breaking the glass and injuring two players, after they had played their first game since the novel coronavirus halted the season in the Portuguese league.
German midfielder Julian Weigl, and Serbian winger Andrija Zivkovic, were injured and taken to the Hospital da Luz in Lisbon.
Defending champions Benfica missed the chance to move clear of title rivals Porto at the top of the table after being held to a 0-0 draw by lowly Tondela.
The result obviously did not go down well with fans who had gathered outside the gates of Benfica’s stadium in Lisbon to support the team because of restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Meanwhile, the top two clubs are now level on 60 points with nine rounds of matches remaining.
