Preview: Tonight’s game marks an unprecedented duel between the two teams. Real Massamá and Benfica have never met and today will be the first meeting between both teams.
The team of Mount Abraham will try to make history, after eliminating the Portugal Cup teams from the upper echelons, as the Arouca or Olhanense. It will obviously be difficult for Real, but the team of the Sintra line has a very positive record coming to this game: not lost in 15 games. The last defeat was in August, at home against Loures, by 1-2.
As for Benfica, eagles arrive very moralizadas this meeting, after a victory in the derby against Sporting. Win the Portugal Cup is a goal of the team incarnate and as such, Rui Vitória should fall on changes to the team, although the opponent is a level much lower.
The coach of Benfica want the utmost respect for Real Massamá and says he “identified with everything” on the team that will face this evening from 19.00.
