There are already teams!

The Reds have a big doubt in their squad: Lucas Ordóñez, who has already missed Game 3 due to injury, will not know until the last minute of the game whether or not he can make a contribution to the crew.

This afternoon will then offer one of two certainties: either FC Porto are national champions or, on the contrary, Benfica take the best and force match 5. If this last scenario is the reality, then the blacks will be next Wednesday. (8 p.m.), at the Dragão Arena, in Porto.

The home factor was decisive in this final, since the home club always won. FC Porto opened hostilities on the 16th, winning at Dragão Arena 5-0, Benfica responding three days later in Luz, triumphing 3-0. The third game, played in the city of Invicta last Wednesday, again smiled on the blues and whites, who won 9-6.

Benfica and FC Porto meet this Saturday afternoon (3 p.m.), at the Pavilhão da Luz, for what will be game 4 of the national roller hockey championship play-off final. In case of victory, the dragons celebrate obtaining the title. If the eagles triumph, equality will only be decided at the Negro. The classic will be broadcast directly on A BOLA TV and will also be accompanied by the second on A BOLA online. Come on, dear reader. He has a guaranteed place in our starting five…

Good evening!
