The start of the third half!
The classic did not disappoint and it is intense. It’s not always played well, it’s true, but always with uncertainty on the scoreboard. FC Porto already had two advantages from six points, but Benfica managed to shorten the distances and lost by only four points. Since it must be added, avatars are no longer in the lead since the first period. The Eagles’ last advantage occurred in the ninth minute (17-16).
Everything is open and the second part promises to continue to be very emotional. Not forgetting that FC Porto will have to continue until the end. In case of defeat, remember, dragons Show Eagle nickname.

There really is a difference!
Remember that this classic game will be played by the two teams that have won the most national championships in the history of the competition: Benfica (27) and Porto (12).
The Dragons will try to reverse the scenario and will of course want to beat the Reds to shorten the distances and maintain their title aspirations. If the Blues and Whites manage to win this afternoon, they are guaranteed at least the fourth game, which, if that happens, will take place again at the Dragão Arena, on Saturday (15:00).
Remember that in the event of a win, Benfica is crowned national champions, winning the first two matches of this final (79-58 and 56-48), both of which were held in Bavelão da Luz.
Porto club receives Benfica this afternoon (6 pm), in the third match of the final of the Betclick League, which will be held at the Dragao Arena, in the city of Invicta. BOLA online will follow the classic steps step by step. Come dear reader…
