Benfica knew how to take advantage of the slip of FC Porto in Madeira against Marítimo and took the lead of the I Liga.
It was to the samba rhythm imposed by Carlos Vinícius that Benfica thrashed Portimonense on Wednesday and rose to the isolated leadership of the Portuguese championship, surpassing FC Porto who tied in Madeira against Marítimo.
What was expected to be a difficult match against an opponent that usually complicates life for the big three turned out to be a game in which the national champions were concentrated and with great offensive production as had not been seen for a long time.
But before telling you about the game, you need to tell him that Bruno Lage decided to make a small revolution in the eleven chosen, putting in field Jardel, Samaris, Gedosn Carlos Vinícius, and Chiquinho. And it was precisely these last two that were in evidence over the 90 minutes.
The Portuguese, who recovered in record time from a serious injury, was very interventionist in the match and in the absence of Pizzi, who was on the bench, it was he who led the vast majority of the attacking plays of the incarnates, showing that the injury already there.
