Benfica is in absolute turmoil after the elimination in the 1/8 finals of Taça de Portugal by Porto, before a week. The situation in the dressing room is really nervous because players and the coach Jorge Jesus are in serious confrontations. Jorge Jesus won’t be in the bench and the team isn’t training for some days now. Grimaldo (14/2) got positive tests on Covid 19 and training sessions were canceled. On the 27th of December, key player Pizzi got involved in an argument with the coach and was suspended for the training session and the players got behind him and refused to continue the training. Also, due to injuries out of the squad are Verissimo (10/3), Pinho (3/1), and Radonjic (2/0). Porto is the leader on the table with a 13-2-0 score and should take advantage of this situation and win important three points at Estádio do Dragão in a fight for the title.
