Magic cards for a perfect end in the derby


Benfica won away at Sporting at the end of the first half of the Liga NOS, with a brace from Rafa, who came off the bench to create goal chances. It was the 16th victory in 17 rounds!


Showing high rotation in both halves of the derby, Benfica beat Sporting at home by 0-2, with a brace from Rafa, the first magic card that Bruno Lage brought on, on matchday 17 of the Liga NOS.
