Taça de Portugal - How to watch O Classico between Porto and Benfica

December 22, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The first meeting between two of the most winning teams in Portugal this season promises to keep fans close to the edge of their seats. Follow it wherever you live!

One of the most interesting football games taking place in the final days of the year will be the one between Porto and Benfica, who will lock horns in a one-legged tie to determine who makes it to the Quarterfinals of the Taça de Portugal. Both Portuguese giants have what it takes to make it to the next round, but their recent form could be crucial to determine who wins the spot in the next round.

Porto will get to this game with five wins in their last six games across all competitions. Their only defeat during that run came against Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, which saw the Dragons being eliminated from the tournament. Their current form has seen Sergio Conceicao's men keeping four clean sheets in those five wins, which speaks volumes about their defensive prowess.

On the other side of the pitch, Benfica will get to this clash with four wins out of their last six matches, with one loss and a yet to be determined result against Belenenses, who abandoned their game due to problems with the COVID-19 virus. The Eagles' only loss during that string of games came against Sporting, one of the leaders in the Primeira Liga alongside Porto. Jorge Jesús' men have scored a whopping 17 times in their last five games, mainly due to their 7-1 win over Maritimo this past weekend.

This game could also give fans a chance to witness a battle between two of the top scorers in the Primeira Liga this season. Uruguayan star Darwin Núñez leads the goalscoring department with thirteen goals, while Porto's sensation Luis Díaz is second with 12 goals up to this point in the competition. Both footballers will be closely guarded by their peers in Thursday's clash.

Let's have a closer look at some stats and facts ahead of this interesting match that will see one of Portugal's "Big Three" leaving the competition.
