Sporting received and beat Benfica in the 16th round of the League. A derby that did not have the presence of Jorge Jesus in the eagle bank, infected with Covid-19.
A troubled match (eight yellow cards and with Benfica losing Jardel as soon as 11 ’, due to injury) that ended up being resolved already in time of compensation. Pedro Porro crossed on the right side, Vlachodimos managed to clear the ball towards the penalty spot, where Matheus Nunes (90+2’) appeared to head towards the back of the net. Since 2012, lions have not beaten eagles in Alvalade
With this result, Sporting continues to lead the championship with 42 points, four more than FC Porto. Benfica is in fourth place, nine of the lions.
