Reigning champions Benfica's poor start to the season continued as they were beaten 2-1 at Nacional, leaving them still looking for their first points of the new Portuguese Liga season.

Jorge Jesus' side lost their opener last weekend and remain pointless after second-half goals from Luis Alberto and Carlos Orlando Sa sent Nacional to the top of the table with two wins from as many games.

Substitute Jorge Carlos Martins scored a 90th-minute consolation for the champions.

In tonight's only other match, Vitoria Setubal held out for a goalless home draw with Braga.
