Porto is beating Benfica 3-1 in the Portuguese soccer classic. Mehdi Taremi scored the third in favor of his team and gave peace of mind to his teammates after Benfica advanced their lines in search of an equalizer.

If the result materializes, Porto will reach 44 units and will be placed in first place in the Portuguese League: it equals in score with Sporting Club, but has a better goal difference. For his part, the ‘Glorious’ will be third with 37 points.

Porto vs. Benfica: prior to the match

Porto, which is in second place with 41 points (three less than Sporting), will try to remain undefeated and will fight for its 11th consecutive victory in the domestic tournament. However, for the duel against the incarnated, the blue ‘Dragons’ accumulate a series of weight losses, especially in defense.

The veteran ex-Madridista Pepe, who this year has suffered numerous injuries, will be a doubt until the last minute, while the Spanish central defender Marcano is safe. They are joined by the Colombian Luis Díaz, down due to COVID-19.

Porto will trust striker Mehdi Taremi to regain his scoring nose, while Mexican international ‘Tecatito’ Corona, who this season barely counts for Sergio Conceicao, will try to scratch a minute in the duel.

For its part, Benfica is third with 37 units and is experiencing moments of instability after the departure of coach Jorge Jesus a few days ago.
