Ajax opponent Benfica is nicked out of the cup in a sensitive way

The eighth final of the Portuguese Cup tournament has become painfully the end station for Benfica. Ajaxs Champions League opponent got an earwash from FC Porto: 3-0.
It is restless with Benfica, as trainer Jorge Jesus could be appointed to Flamengo and fans would rather lose him than be rich. Add to that the ugly cup elimination against Porto and then it may be clear that the atmosphere in Lisbon is not too best. The archrival was far too strong in the eighth final of the cup.
After seven minutes, the backlog was almost insurmountable for Benfica, where Jan Vertonghen was at the base. Due to goals of Evanilson and Vitinha, Porto soon came 2-0 and that margin was extended to three in the first half, when Evanilson made his second of the evening.
The red shirts from Lisbon were not able to make it even more exciting, because a goal by Nicolas Otamendi was frowned upon in the second half. As a result, Benfica only has the Portuguese league and the Champions League to play for. In the Primeira Liga, the third, four points behind the frontrunner Porto.
On February 23 and March 15 of the next year, the Portuguese will compete against Ajax in the eighth final of the billion-dollar ball. The first game will be played at the Estรกdio Da Luz, after which the return in the Johan Cruijff Arena will be finished.
