II Liga: Quality Mafra surprises Benfica B leader in Seixal


Despite having registered a second defeat in the defeat, the Benfica players, who came from four consecutive victories, remain in the lead of the competition with 23 points, two more than the runners-up Casa Pia and Rio Ave.

The goals of the match were scored by Bura, by Mafra, and Filipe Cruz, by Benfica B, in the first half, while Gui Ferreira, from penalty, and Vítor Gabriel scored the goals that gave the three points to the outsiders at Seixal.

Despite having entered the field with 10 points less in the table than the opponent, Mafra managed to completely blur that difference on the field, presenting themselves without complexes and looking for Svilar’s goal from the start.

After heading to the left post of Benfica’s goal after five minutes, defender Bura was more effective, at nine minutes, when, following a corner on the right, he managed to spin inside the area and shoot for the 1st. -0 of the Mafrense.

At a disadvantage on the scoreboard, the competition leader’s response did not take long. In the 12th minute, in a free-kick superbly taken by Filipe Cruz, with a shot placed in the upper left corner, the ‘eagles’ restored the equality (1-1).

The match remained balanced until the break with both teams approaching with danger from the opposing areas. At 27 minutes, after a counterattack led by Rodrigo Martins, the striker only missed a goal for Mafra due to an attentive defense by Svilar. Two minutes later, it was Benfica player Umaro Embaló’s turn to shoot hard over Miguel Santos’ goalpost.

In the second half, Mafra was the better team and managed to materialize that ascendant with two goals. The 2-1 was achieved following a penalty committed by Filipe Cruz on Rodrigo Martins. From the 11-meter mark, at 66 minutes, Gui Ferreira replaced Mafra in front of the marker.

At 81, Ricardo Sousa’s men extended the lead to 3-1 through Vítor Gabriel who came to the far post to touch the goal, after assistance from Rodrigo Martins, who scored an excellent performance, ranking himself as the best player in field.
