Part two begins!
Benfica took the lead in the first half with the result that Porto took the lead in the first half. The Reds have always been the most dangerous team and the one that circles the opposing goal the most, and in that chapter, Harvey Marjan still put off the Eagles’ first goal.
However, the Spain international was helpless in the 13th minute, when a shrewd Carlos Nikolaia fired into Porto’s No. 1 to open for Luce. Xiaolong tried to react, but Pedro Henriquez was always safe between the posts. The Benfica goalkeeper even managed to save Gonzalo Alves’ direct free-kick.
The Reds were awarded a direct free-kick shortly after – the tenth foul committed by the Blues and the Whites – but Lucas Ordonez was unable to get past Javi Marjan. The Porto goalkeeper would shine again in seconds – all in the last minute(!) of the first half – when he saved Carlos Nicolía’s penalty.
But the break wouldn’t come without another goal, and Lucas Ordonez, at the whistle of the break, deftly deflected Polman Rubia’s cross and extended the lead to the Eagles. The referee duo still spent a few minutes deliberating as FC Porto players and officials argued because they knew the goal would come after the 25th minute, but it was Carlos Correa and Joaquim Pinto The decision remained unchanged and Benfica entered a break to win 2-0.

The red venue will be fully booked in the derby as on Sunday morning the Luz club announced that it had sold all tickets for the reception to Porto players.
There’s a new duel between red and blue and white this Sunday, but this time at Pavilhão da Luz in Lisbon. Benfica will naturally be under more pressure and want to win to balance the final score. Of course, in the opposite direction, FC Porto is looking for another win, which would make the Dragons very capable of winning the title if that happens.
The Dragons arrived at this meeting before a draw because, last Thursday, at the Dragão Arena in Porto, they won their first game and then… rout. Carlo Di Benedetto (2), Gonzalo Alves, Xavi Barroso and Rafa scored for Ricardo Ares’ team.
