Benfica won the women’s League Cup twice and Braga is the holder.
Benfica and Braga take the field today, at 3 pm, in search of the third and second trophies of the League Cup, respectively, in a final scheduled for Municipal de Leiria, which will be arbitrated by Filipa Cunha from Viana. The reds won the first two editions (2019/20 and 2020/21) and the Minho team are the holders of the title.
Although the eagles come from a defeat, the first in national competitions, for coach Filipa Patão, this will not weigh on the performance. “There are no teams that always win. We know we have weaknesses, we also know our strengths and we tried our best to work on weaknesses. There are two teams that are preparing in the best way, it is a final and both will want to win and will be prepared. football and it will be a great show”, predicted.
For coach Gonçalo Nunes, the Arsenalistas’ triumph in the previous game is also not taken into account. And he justifies: “We are in a final, neither Braga feels stronger because it comes from a victory, nor Benfica is different or less strong because it comes from a defeat. Benfica is a strong team in the different moments of the game. But Braga it’s also very good, so the detail will make the difference”.
