Our prediction for this Taca de Portugal match:
A place in the Taca de Portugal semis will be at stake when Benfica and Belenenses take on each other at Estadio da Luz on Wednesday evening. The Eagles dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Nacional on Monday evening, and, no doubt, they are eager to return to winning ways. Benfica were beaten by Braga in the Taca da Liga semis, meaning that they will give 100% to go all the way in the Portuguese Cup.
The likes of Pedrinho, Ramos, and Taarabt are all pushing for a start, while Waldschmidt, Vertongen, Otamendi, Leite, Grimaldo, Goncalves, and Gilberto have been tested positive for coronavirus. O Belem, on the other hand, booked their place in the quarter-finals by beating AD Fafe after extra-time. Belenenses are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Benfica’s party at Estadio da Luz. Henrique returns from a domestic ban, while both Kau and Varela remain in the recovery room.
