Braga and Benfica will face in the Portuguese League Cup semi-final. Their opponents in the final will be Sporting Lisboa who beat Porto in the other semi-final. This should be an interesting match, but I will give advantage to Benfica.
But first about the team news. While Benfica are almost complete ( full-back Andre Almeida is the only absentee), Braga will be missing three players - Rui Fonte is a long-term injury victim due to a cruciate ligaments injury, while Paulinho is struggling with a muscle injury.

The strikers absence is a big handicap for the hosts. That's not all as left-back Francisco Moura is also out with cruciate ligaments injury.
The actual form of both teams is also a reason for my pick. Braga suffered a painful defeat in the last match in the league. They lost 2:0 to Pacos Ferreira. Benfica, meanwhile, could be fully satisfied with the draw they played with Porto. Even more as they were guests in the derby.
Braga will try to cause an upset coming into this one, but I think Benfica will not lose after 90 minutes."

    17 covid cases in Benfica , few of them are players ; Grimaldo , Vertonghen , Otamendi , Gilberto , Waldsmicht and Nuno Tavares. Everton Sousa , whose wife is positive , wont probably play. 

    Almost full team?

    Yes, but Benfica still have a respectable squad - Weigl, Pizzi, Taarabt and Silva in the midfield; Seferovic and Nunez Ribeiro in the attack. Of course, it is possible Braga to win.

    In terms of odds changing this was a rollercoaster. In the end, you have backed Benfica at the peak with 1.77 and beaten closing odds by a lot, so with this in mind this was a good bet and your timing was perfect. The market overreacted to team news and you recognized it in this case. A good bet, keep it up!
