The Benfica Official Store filled up on Thursday afternoon for an autograph session where this time the protagonists were Jardel and João Carvalho.
The queue started to form early and even before 3:00 pm – the event start time – there were already dozens of supporters waiting to take pictures, exchange impressions and get autographs of the players of Benfica's first team.
Friends, parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren patiently waited for the arrival of Jardel and João Carvalho, who distributed autographs on scarves, jerseys, postcards and posed for pictures with the supporters "Another opportunity to get the Benfica Family together and pass on the Mysticism that only we have ", said the supporters.
On Saturday, Benfica hosts GD Chaves in an encounter of Matchweek 19 of Liga NOS scheduled for 6:15 pm. Almost all supports predicted a result by more than 3-0. They don’t underestimate the opponent, but they warn that Benfica will have to "watch out" and "continue to show that they will keep on fighting for the fifth league title in a row".
