Watch: Raul Jimenez scores first Champions League double for Benfica

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Raul Jimenez scored twice to help Benfica rescue a point away to FC Astana in their Champions League group stage clash from Wednesday.

Patrick Twumasi and Marin Anicic had given Astana the lead, but Benfica fought back to pull within one through a Raul Jimenez header.

Jimenez then laid on the equalizer in the 72nd minute when an Andre Almeida cross was met by the Mexican international from six yards out.

Jimenez's goal was his third since arriving to the Portuguese champions from Atletico Madrid over the summer and his first brace since arriving to Europe from Club America.
