Playing in front of a sold-out Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb, coach Nenad Bjelica’s team edged the Portuguese side in the first game of the round of sixteen of the Europa League competition.

Dinamo forward Bruno Petković scored the lone goal on a penalty shot in the 38th minute of play.

The return leg will be played in Lisbon next Thursday.
