Benfica's full statement:

«Today, after Benfica made it 2-3 in the first part of extra time of the first game of the National Hockey Championship final, in just 38 seconds, the refereeing team awarded two team fouls, allowing FC Porto to reach the tenth foul in their favor and they had a clear chance. To score from a direct free kick.

“This is not the first time this has happened at the Dragao Arena – it is worth remembering what happened to Benfica in 21/22 – it is required that the better team win there as well, which was clearly Benfica.”
