Carlos Carvalhal’s side lost 1-0 against Sporting CP and Maritimo before two straight draws. They drew 1-1 against Pacos de Ferreira and 1-1 at Gil Vicente.

Braga bounced back with a 2-1 win against Moreirense. Abel Ruiz opened the scoring before a late João Novais penalty secured all three points.

Braga’s last match was a 0-0 draw at Portimonense. They had 64% possession but could only manage two shots on target.

The Eagles won their final three league matches, starting with a 3-1 win at Nacional. 

Jorge Jesus’ side were the first to beat Sporting CP in the league, winning 4-3 at home. It was a great match with Haris Seferovic bagging a brace, Pizzi with a goal and two assists with Lucas Verissimo on target.

Benfica’s last match was a 3-1 win at Vitoria de Guimaraes. Seferovic was at the double once again with Everton making sure of it in added time.

Benfica Injuries & Team News

Benfica are missing injured defenders André Almeida, Joao Ferreira and midfielder Andreas Samaris. 

Winger Rafa will hope to be fit for the Cup final.

Centre back Lucas Verissimo came off injured in Guimaraes with Jan Vertonghen his likely replacement.


Braga had a poor finish to the season with Benfica coming home strong. There is great value on Benfica winning the Portuguese Cup final.
