A bus carrying the Benfica team was stoned on Thursday, breaking the glass and injuring two players, after they had played their first game since coronavirus halted the season, broadcaster RTP reported citing Portuguese police.
German midfielder Julian Weigl and Serbian winger Andrija Zivkovic were taken to hospital to be treated for injuries as a precaution. The attack on a major motorway between the club's Estadio da Luz and training ground followed Benfica's first game in three months.
The Portuguese champions missed the chance to move clear at the top of the table after being held to a 0-0 draw by lowly Tondela. The top two are now level on 60 points with nine rounds of matches remaining.
