Taça da Liga - How to watch Sporting Braga vs Benfica on January 20, 2021

January 20, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The Eagles may be facing this game without key members of their staff and squad due to an outbreak of COVID-19 cases.

The 2020-21 Taça da Liga will see its second semi-final being played today despite the setbacks suffered by one of the teams involved.

Sporting Braga and Benfica lock horns in what should be an exciting game to watch. The winner of this tie will play against Sporting, who defeated Porto in the other semi-final fixture.

Braga will enter this game after losing two of their last three league matches, where they have only been capable of scoring two goals. Carlos Carvalhal's men last claimed a win in a Portuguese cup clash against Torrense, but they will need a bit more effort to beat their rivals on Wednesday.

As for Benfica, the Eagles have drawn two of their last three league games, including a one-all result against Porto in O Classico last Friday. Nevertheless, the main problems for coach Jorge Jesús have developed recently due to a massive COVID-19 outbreak within the team, which has seen over 30 people between staff and players infected. Benfica had requested to delay this game, but the tight schedule forced the Portuguese Football Federation to deny that request.

Benfica will aim to reach their eighth Taça da Liga final, while Braga will try to defend the title they won last year. The Eagles have won each of those seven previous Taça da Liga finals, while Braga have played three title games, winning two of those. Which of these will claim the remaining spot in the final? We are hours away from finding out.
