Benfica players Weigl and Zivkovic were taken to a Lisbon hospital last night after a group stoned the team's bus after playing the game with modest Tondela , who ended in a draw to zero.
The incident took place when the bus was returning to the center of Seixal , on the outskirts of Lisbon , when it was attacked by unknown persons .
"We report that, as a matter of precaution, the players Julian Weigl and Zivkovic were immediately taken to the Hospital da Luz", in the Portuguese capital, "to be examined," Benfica said in a statement offering " full collaboration with the authorities "to identify those responsible .
After leaving the hospital, Weigl published a photo on Instagram today with Zivkovic, who has a bandage on his right eye.
"I just want them to know that I am fine. We were very lucky ! We have all made mistakes, but there was a line that was exceeded! Throwing stones at a bus without worrying if someone gets hurt? I know that the true fans of Benfica do not they are like that! "he wrote.
For his part, Zivkovic shared the same photograph with a message in which he pointed out that "this behavior cannot be justified ".
With the draw against Tondela, Benfica equaled 60 points with Porto, which is why they share the lead, although the Blue and Whites' team occupies first place as they have the "goal average" in their favor.
The result generated a lot of tension and, in addition to the stone attack, it was manifested in several graffiti with insults that have appeared on the walls surrounding the houses of the players Pizzi and Rafa and the coach, Bruno Lage.
The Portuguese League has returned to the field of play this week to play the twenty-fifth day after the forced stoppage in March by the Covid-19 pandemic and all matches will be played behind closed doors.
