In the first match after the departure of coach Bulbeis, and with assistant Estevao Cordovil on the bench in charge of the team, Benfica crushed Portimonense in Luz (8-2) and returned to winning ways in Liga Blacar.

However, the Eagles did not get rid of the panic in front of the penultimate seed, that is, in the first half, during which time they conceded two goals and were sent off twice. Unhindered, Algarve took the lead through Nardinho (6′), but Rômulo equalized seconds later. Benfica’s tenseness and pace were notorious, with Carlos Montero (11) and Bruno Coelho (17) sent off before Portimonense regained the lead with a brace from Nardinho. The Eagles responded quickly again, Rocha made it 2-2 and almost converted before half-time, as did Portimonense’s third goal, which saw Alan miss a direct free-kick for the second time.

In the second part, everything was different. Benfica came back with everything from the locker room, and after threatening Chichkala, Rocha scored two goals and gave the team the first advantage, in a goal that shook the red team to defeat it. Two minutes later, he assisted the Brazilian Bruno Sintra to make it 4-2 and Afonso Jesus reassured him with the fifth goal (32). Portimonense tried to respond, using the advancing goalkeeper, but ended up conceding three more goals, by Chishkala (36), Silvestre (37) and Afonso Jesus (38), in a defeat that eased the crisis at Benfica. *
