Uruguayan Darwin Núñez scored twice for Benfica that beat Estoril 1-3 who opened the scoring and showed good manners, in the first leg of the Portuguese Cup semifinals. The first goal was scored by the 22-year-old Portuguese winger André Vidigal, who set off all the alarms in the eagles as a whole, with Jorge Jesús on the bench. The encounter it changed to the brink of the rest, when Darwin Núñez made the tie.
Even so, Estoril, with Jacobo Ramallo from Salamanca as assistant coach, went all out in the second half and squeezed Helton Leite’s goal. However, the Swiss international striker Haris Seferovic scored in 68 and made it 1-2 for Benfica. The sentence came in 77, after a counter that culminated Darwin Núñez to close the final 1-3. Estoril, a second division team that is fighting for promotion to the top competition, stood up and Benfica complied with the script. The return will be the next day 3 at the Estadio da Luz, a day in which Braga and Porto will also be measured, which on Wednesday tied at one.
