On April 7, Da Luz will host the match of the 27th round of the Portuguese Championship, in which Benfica will meet with Porto. The start of the fight is scheduled for 20:00 Kyiv time.
The club is confidently moving towards the return of the championship title. And that would have been sufficient justification for inviting Roger Schmidt last summer. But a German can achieve much more even in the first year of work in Lisbon! His eagles were something of a Champions League discovery. No, they made it to the playoffs a year ago, leaving behind Barcelona. But now they have won a quartet against such giants as PSG with Juventus – the Italians eventually went to the Europa League. In the 1/8 finals, Brugge was not noticed there, and in the upcoming confrontation with Inter, the Portuguese do not look like an underdog. Yes, there was a failure in the cup, but in Primeira Benfica goes almost without misfires. It was not particularly easy against Rio Ave, but at the same time, we still managed to get the final score 1:0.
The team will save the season through the last tournament in which it is still possible to win a trophy – the national cup. There, the dragons reached the semi-finals, where they will be clear favorites in the confrontation with the modest Famalican. Everything else to Sergio Conceisau has already been de facto lost. His wards looked good in the Champions League, where they won a difficult group with Bayer and Atlético in the fall. Yes, and with Inter everything was decided by the only goal in Milan, after which in the second leg everything ended in a pragmatic goalless draw. True, in the end, the Italians simply rebounded – there was both a bar and a crossbar. However, even in Primeira I still need to defend at least 2nd place, we have lost a lot of points. Yes, and Portimonense barely won, 1:0.
9 times in a row in this derby Porto did not lose. But in October, due to the only goal of Rafa Silva, Benfica won the Dragau.
Bookmakers consider Benfica to be the favorite of the duel. But the main thing for her is not to lose. So it’s worth stopping at the offer with a total of less than 2.5 goals with a coefficient of 1.833.
