Di Maria scores, Pepe flies: Benfica wins Portuguese Supercup

The Portuguese Supercup 2023 goes to Benfica Lisbon. The champions coached by Roger Schmidt around keeper Vlachodimos, Otamendi, di Maria and Joao Mario prevailed against cup winners FC Porto on Wednesday evening.

Musa ensures the final score – Pepe’s unsightly action

The Argentinian world champion and returnee di Maria scored the first goal, slipping past keeper Diogo Jota (61′). Only seven minutes later, the Adler struck again, Joker Musa deliberately put the ball down and completed it skillfully after playing with Rafa (68th).

Speaking of ability: The now 40-year-old central defender Pepe proved impressively that he still hasn’t completely got his emotions under control. In the 90th minute, the former Real player intentionally hit his knee in Jurasek’s buttocks and was sent off. On his departure, the former Portugal international provocatively stretched his jersey towards Benfica fans.

After a whopping 15 minutes of stoppage time, it was over, Benfica is the Supercup winner in Portugal in 2023.
