Braga (Portugal), Jan 23 (IANS) Porto are through to the final of the Portuguese League Cup final after defeating Benfica 3-1 in the first semifinal.
The match at Municipal Stadium in Braga on Tuesday night, which is hosting both semifinals and next Sunday's final, saw plenty of back-and-forth action between Primeira Liga leaders Porto and second-place Benfica, reports Efe news.
Yacine Brahimi scored in the 24th minute to put Porto ahead 1-0, but Rafa Silva equalized for Benfica eight minutes later. The draw only lasted for four minutes, however, as Moussa Marega made it 2-1 for Porto in the 36th minute.
Benfica remained in the contest until the 87th minute, when Fernando Andrade dos Santos boosted Porto's lead to 3-1.
