Game postponed

The Portugal Cup, the equivalent of the FA Cup, 4th round tie between Benfica and Sp.Braga scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday) has been postponed until December 12 due to the NATO Summit taking place in Lisbon this weekend.

The PSP police stated that the game between two of the top Premier Liga teams was rated as “high risk”, which required “the use of a very substantial number of police officers,” and emphasises that the “severe restrictions and road closures would undoubtedly cause problems for supporters trying to reach  the Stadium of Light“.
