Benfica is the National Champion!


Here is the 8th title that joins the Super Cup and the Portuguese Cup... a Benfica Treble!

Sport Lisboa e Benfica beat Sporting CP in game 4 of the Volleyball National Championship play-off final, becoming National Champion, this Thursday, at Pavilhão João Rocha. Victory in the series by 3-1. Here is the Treble!

Benfica's starting XI: Rapha, Zelão, Honoré, Winters, Tiago Violas, Theo Lopes and Ivo Casas.


"We showed a very strong ability to react"

Marcel Matz (coach of Benfica): “I'm very happy with the team's performance. We had three difficult moments in this play-off: to lose the first game here [Pavilhão João Rocha], we showed resilience at home, we didn't play well in the third game and today we were also trailing and we showed a very strong ability to react. I'm happy for the volleyball and we hope to win other titles in the other sports.”
