FC Porto humiliated their best enemy (3-0), which was largely defeated Thursday night in the last 16 of the Portuguese Cup. Evanelson scored twice, and Nicholas Otamendi had a bad night.
The most successful club in the history of the Portuguese Cup (26), Benfica sees its path stop in the round of 16. Blame unplayable FC Porto, on Thursday in the hot Estadio do Dragao, during an alluring confrontation between two Portuguese football stars, who lined up teams made up of many ball bearers.
Duel over the top relatively early in the competition, where there was almost no suspense, while Sergio Conceicao’s men gave a real lesson to those Jorge Jesus (3-0), burdened with a disastrous start to the match.
The goal was rejected, expelled … the cup to the dregs of Benfica
He surprised Benfica from the start with a fox goal from the roofs of Brazilian striker Evanlison (the first), and Benfica made the task more difficult as his goalkeeper Hilton Leite went to eliminate him in the fist, allowing Vitina to shoot well (seventh). Evanelson gave himself a double with a strong kick in the penalty area (31). Nicolas Otamendi thought he had reduced the difference to the score (83), but the VAR rejected his goal due to an initial offside situation.
Benviquist’s evening ended in a fiasco as the same Otamendi was sent off in overtime (90 + 4). Thanks to this great success against the intimate enemy, Porto qualified for the quarter-finals of the Portuguese Cup. And he deals a big blow before the two teams meet in seven days, in their first meeting this year within the framework of the sixteenth day of the championship (To follow exclusively on RMC Sport 3).
