Covilhã heads into this match with low motivation after a home defeat, by 1-2, against Feirense. The home team usually plays in a traditional 4-4-2, favoring quick transitions, where the two arrows aimed at the opposing goal are Kukula and Castanheira.

Benfica heads into this performance motivated after a 4-0 home win against Marítimo: Pizzi, Carlos Vinícius and Douglas Grolli (own goal) signed the "goals" of the victory. The foreign team, in these meetings for the Cups, usually plays in a 4-3-3, where the three players whose mission is to launch panic in the opposing defensive will be Chiquinho, João Filipe and Raúl de Tomás. It is possible that in the most central area of the land act Pizzi, Samaris and Gabriel. Benfica is expected to take an offensive stance, given its superiority over the "enemy".

The most likely scenario for this match will be for Benfica to win at halftime. Admittedly, the visiting club is off the ground, but it has a higher quality squad than its “enemy”. It should be noted that Benfica were winning at rest time in the last two performances.
