Jorge Jesus: 'Draw was a positive result for Benfica'

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus says that a 1-1 draw with Olympiacos was a positive result for his team.

Jorge Jesus has described Benfica's 1-1 draw with Olympiacos in the Champions League as a "positive result".

The match was completed despite heavy rain and surface water restricting the movement of the ball, particularly in the second half.

The Portuguese side's manager told UEFA.com: "I think this was a positive result because this is the UEFA Champions League, although the ideal scenario was to win.

"But in the second half [the rain made it] impossible to play the kind of football we are used to playing."

The home side had to come from behind, with Oscar Cardozo levelling the scores seven minutes from the final whistle.
