For the 10th time in 12 editions of the competition, Benfica qualified for the semi-finals of the League Cup. Needing only a point to go through to the final four, the reds got a 1-1 draw at Aves' home ground and, as the winners of Group A, they will face the winners of Group C ( FC Porto, Chaves or Varzim) on January 22, in Braga.
[GOAL: 1-0] A run from Rodrigo on the right flank generated a cross toward Mama Baldé, who beat Svilar with a header (49').
[GOAL: 1-1] At 70', Yuri Ribeiro made a short pass towards Zivkovic, who won the rebound and made a perfect cross for Seferovic's left-footed finish.
