They comfortably beat Firenze and Benfica are still hoping for the title


Benfica is still hoping for this year’s Portuguese league title. The “eagles” won 3-1 at the home of Firenze in the last match of the 30th matchday of the Primeira Liga and reduced to -7 again from the leaders Sporting Lisbon in second place, hoping in the last four matches to “steal” the title from ” lions’ and make it ‘4 out of 4’ in that time, leaving the hosts just +3 away from the relegation zone.

The Lusitanians took the lead in the 16th minute with Koktsu’s place kick from inside the area, but Bellumi equalized in the 23rd minute with a strong shot from inside the area. Cabral in the 34th minute made it 1-2 and the victory for Roger Schmidt’s players was “sealed” in the 67th minute by Alvaro Fernandez after a nice combination of his teammates and his own place from inside the area.
