According to the Sky Sports, supporters of the Portuguese side threw objects at the squad bus following their 0-0 draw with Tondela.

Second-placed Benfica would have overtaken league leaders Porto had they won, but failed to capitalise on their rivals' loss to Famalicao on Wednesday night.

It has been claimed that supporters gathered outside the stadium after not being allowed to enter the ground for their own safety, and made their feelings known when the bus came past them.

Both midfielders were then taken to hospital to be treated for their injuries, with Benfica releasing a statement on the incident.

"Benfica denounce the criminal stoning the bus of its players was victim to," they said.
