There was football for a larger lead


Benfica won the second derby in four days (2-1) and is in the lead ahead of the second leg of the Portuguese Cup semi-finals.

The second derby in just four days and a new well-deserved Benfica win (2-1), although the display of the eagles deserved more goals, which nearly happened before Sporting pulled one back through a free kick close to the final whistle. The triumph takes the reds to the 2nd leg of the Portuguese Cup in the lead, a tie that will only be complete in April.
