As Águias (the Eagles) have an excellent chance to take vengeance on their age-long enemy and dispose Porto of the Cup. Who else but the Dragões (Dragons) are the major irritator – they have almost become the champions of Portugal and are the only team that has defeated Benfica in all their head-to-head battles. However, As Águias (the Eagles) have a new manager, so now Benefica are capable to handle any opponent. They faced Famalicão in the tightly contested semifinal and won 4:3 on aggregate.
This season has been nearly perfect for Sérgio Conceição’s troops, except for the part when the Dragões (Dragons) were out of the Eurocups. Porto have almost achieved the country’s title, they just need to earn points in one of two remaining fixtures. Furthermore, the Dragões (Dragons) have all chances to win the country’s cup since they are in excellent physical condition. Conceição’s players have won 7 previous fixtures in a row.
