Benfica maintained their position at the top of the Primeira Liga on Wednesday as they comfortably defeated Portimonense 4-0 at the Estadio da Luz, with Alex Grimaldo once again displaying his class at left-back.
He recorded two assists on the night, two very different assists. His first came for the second goal of the evening after his initial excellent corner was headed back out to the wing. He made no mistake with his second delivery, firing a cross into the centre for Ruben Dias to slide home.
Then, 15 minutes later, he set-up another, this time for Carlos Vinicius to run through and take it round the keeper to score after a quite brilliant threaded pass into and beyond the midfield from the left flank.
The Spaniard had the second-most touches of any player in the league on Wednesday - a rare feat for a left-back.
Defensively, he made seven ball recoveries, two interceptions, and three clearances for the hosts.
