Haris Seferovic put the Portuguese side in front after six minutes, with left-back Alex Grimaldo heading in a second on the quarter-hour mark.

AEK hit back with two goals in the space of 11 second-half minutes from striker Viktor Klonaridis to draw level just after the hour.

Benfica, though, got themselves back in front with 16 minutes left through substitute Alfa Semedo.

In Group H, Paulo Dybala scored a hat-trick as Juventus – missing Cristiano Ronaldo through suspension – beat Young Boys 3-0 in Turin to continue their perfect start to the new season.

The Bianconeri, who had gone into the clash on the back of seven straight Serie A wins, took the lead after five minutes when Dybala crashed in a volley.

The Argentine doubled the lead just after half-an-hour, knocking home a rebound from Blaise Matuidi’s shot, and completed his hat-trick after 69 minutes with a close-range finish.

The Swiss side finished with 10 men after defender Mohamed Ali Camara was sent off for a second caution with 12 minutes left.

Roma thrashed Viktoria Plzen 5-0 in Group G, with Edin Dzeko scoring a hat-trick. Dzeko gave the Italians an early lead after just three minutes and added a second five minutes before the break.

Cengiz Under made it 3-0 after 64 minutes, with Justin Kluivert adding a fourth before Dzeko completed his treble with a header from a corner in stoppage-time.

Group F leaders Lyon came from two goals down to draw 2-2 at home against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Brazilian Junior Moraes had struck either side of half-time to seemingly put the Ukrainians in control. However, Moussa Dembele started the comeback with 20 minutes left and defender Leo Dubois equalised just two minutes later.
