Sporting Clinch Portuguese Cup With Comeback Win Over Benfica

Sporting Lisbon came from behind to defeat Benfica 2-1 on Saturday to win the Portuguese League Cup for the second year in a row, and fourth time in five seasons.

Benfica took the lead in the first half in Leiria thanks to a goal from Everton, but Goncalo Inacio equalised on 49 minutes before Paris Saint-Germain loanee Pablo Sarabia struck the winner for Sporting.

Sporting are the reigning league champions but trail leaders, Porto, by six points after losing two of their past three matches.
