There is already a team!
National team coach Jorge Braz watches Benfica – Tram live from Pavilhão da Luz. Remember, the national team coach was already present at the Joao Rocha Pavilion earlier this Sunday afternoon to follow the events at Sport-Fendang.
Celio Koke has been left out of Joao Freitas Pinto’s squad once again in the Alentejo squad, as the young winger has been loaned to Eletrico from Benfica.
For the red side, Diego Loncario, Tayebi and Bruno Sintra were not included in Purpis’ selection, instead, Sylvester Ferreira and Romulo returned to Spain in the coach’s lineup.
However, in the second round, the Eagles won the 15th round in Luz on January 2, 2022, with a 5-3 victory for the team led by Purpis.
So the Alentejo badge will do everything in its power to tie these semi-finals, postponing the Black team’s decision. Also, keep in mind that beating Benfica is nothing new for Benfica: on October 16, 2021, in the second round of the regular season, Joao Freitas Pinto’s team won 3-1 beat Benfica.
