The Lusitania team will challenge the Benfica team in a Portuguese Cup 3e ronde in Estádio João Paulo II Stadium, Ilha Terceira Açores on Friday, October 20, 2023. For streaming coverage of Lusitania vs Benfica, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Lusitania, a team newly promoted to the fourth division, have started their first campaign at that level in the last five years very well, with the team now unbeaten in their last five games – winning four.
They have kept clean sheets in their last two home matches in all competitions and will look to rely on home advantage in this match to spring a surprise.
However, don’t underestimate Benfica. Although they haven’t won it since 2017, they are the most successful team in the competition with 26 wins. They have won seven games in a row in the league, including against potential title rivals Porto. Their last-minute win over Estoril was somewhat fortunate, with Antonio Silva scoring the winner in the 93rd minute.
Benfica have faltered in this run from Taca in the last three years. Despite facing teams from the third division on every occasion, Benfica needed a penalty shootout to see off Caldas last season, extra time to beat Trofense a year earlier, and they only managed a 1-0 success over Paredes in 2020.
Facing Lusitania in the 2023 Portuguese Cup, Benfica have a busy schedule after the international break and after this cup match, will face Real Sociedad in an important Champions League match. Some of their players will be fresh after the game from international duty and may be rested for the Champions League clash.
So, reflecting on the latest information above, can Lusitania surprise with a big win? Or will Benfica show their dominance once again in the 2023 Portuguese Cup? who will emerge as the winner? Don’t miss watching Lusitania vs Benfica live on the available streaming TV.
