The semi-finals of the 2023/24 Taca de Portugal are upon us, and fans have been treated with a Derby de Lisboa. This is the first of two legs, with the return fixture scheduled for the first week of April. The pair are also fighting at the top of the Primeira Liga table, so will be hoping they can get early bragging rights and possibly even momentum going into that battle.

Benfica are the record-winners of the Taca de Portugal, winning the competition 26 times, seven more than any other club. However, they haven’t lifted the trophy since 2017, and a large number of their victories came as part of their domination of Portuguese football in the 1950s and 1980s. Since last winning the trophy, Benfica have finished as runners-up twice and also fell at this hurdle in 2018/19, beaten on away goals by Sporting CP. Benfica opened their 2023/24 Taca de Portugal campaign with a 4-1 win over fourth-tier Lusitania Acores in the third round, before beating Famalicao, Braga and Vizela — all fellow Primeira Liga sides — to reach the semi-finals.

Sporting CP are the third-most successful club in Taca de Portugal history with 17 wins to their name, two behind second-placed Porto. Like Benfica, Sporting’s victories haven’t been frequent this century, with just five wins — most recently in 2019, when they knocked Benfica out of the semi-finals. Since then, Sporting have suffered two early exits, as well as losing in the last 16 and semi-finals (in 2021/22 when they lost to Porto). Also joining in the third round, Sporting kicked off their Taca de Portugal run with a 3-1 win over fifth-tier Olivais e Moscavide. Sporting then beat Dumiense, Tondela and Uniao de Leirira, with Benfica their first Primeira Liga opponents this season.

Scoreline prediction: Sporting CP 0-1 Benfica
