Benfica come from behind to advance to Taca semis

Benfica Blog
Benfica will appear in the Taca de Portugal for the second consecutive year after their come from behind victory over Rio Ave at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. Benfica who fell behind early when Rio Ave's Lucas Piazon scored just four minutes into the contest on a brilliant free kick, brought the game level when striker Carlos Vinicius found a streaking Franco Cervi who's high shot got past Setubal  keeper Paulo Vitor. Rio Ave would regain the lead at the 31st minute as Diogo Figueiras would find a just onside Taremi who's header would get past Benfica keeper Zlobin. Benfica would fight from behind until substitute striker Seferovic's low shot would find the back of the net from a Vinicius head pass and Benfica would once again bring it level at the 64 minute mark. Seferovic would then give Benfica the lead for good just seven minutes later scoring his second of the contest from a Pizzi pass and Benfica would hang on for the 3-2 victory. Benfica will now await the winner of the Famalicao/Pacos Ferreira encounter to find out their opponent in the two leg semi-final match.
