In their intervening game between the two Europa League semi-final legs against Juventus, 10-man Benfica pulled off a penalty shootout win over Porto at the Dragao Stadium to reach the Portuguese League Cup final.
After a goalless 90 minutes, it went straight to penalties, where Jorge Jesus’ men came out on top by converting four to Porto’s three.
Already domestic champions and with a place in the cup final booked, Benfica’s latest triumph means they are still in the running for a quadruple.
Jesus fielded a much-rotated Eagles side from the one which managed to acquire a 2-1 lead over the Bianconeri on Thursday, Jan Oblak instead of Artur in goal being just the first of many changes.
It was an almost completely different back-line, too, with Siqueira the only defender to play a part on both Thursday and Sunday.
At the other end of the pitch, the boss gave the nod to an Oscar Cardozo-Lima strike partnership, where it had been Rodrigo partnering the tall Paraguayan in the Europa League against Juve.
