Ghanaian attacker Osei Barnes starred prominently for Pacos Fereira in a four-goal thriller with Belennense.
The 21-year-old forward inspired Pacos from a goal down to snatch a well-deserved point at home to the high-flying Belennense.
Barnes has since managed 12 appearances in the season with one goal to show for his efforts.
The young Ghanaian forward, 21, who is a transfer target for a number of domestic rivals led the line for his Liga outfit in a four-goal thriller.
The visitors shot into a well-deserved lead just five minutes after kick off but Mureira drew parity for the home side from the spot kick seven minutes after going behind.
The inspired Osei Barnes then came close to putting Pacos ahead for the first time in the game but desperate defending from the visitors denied him a second goal of the campaign.
South American import Andre leal capitalised on a total team play to shoot Pacos into a 75th minute lead for the first time in the game only for the visitors to restore parity three minutes later.
The spirited Belennense abandoned their numerical disadvantage after the sending off of Carlos Martin just seven minutes into the second department of the game in an end to end the match on Saturday night.
Pacos moves into the sixth place while Belennense remains 4 clear from the drop now after an impressive run of matches.
