LISBON, Portugal (AP) Substitute Lima scored six minutes from the end to give Benfica a 2-1 win over Juventus in the Europa League first-leg semifinals on Thursday.

Benfica will take a slender advantage over the Serie A leader to next week's return leg in Turin.

Lima received a pass inside the area and fired into the top corner, restoring Benfica's lead after Carlos Tevez's 72nd-minute equalizer.
