Gonçalo Pinto left Benfica free at half-time (16 m) after scoring the second goal for the visitors (3-2).
The second half started with a new goal from Porto in the first minute (26 minutes), with Ezequiel Mena, but Benfica, who is always dangerous with Pablo Álvarez on the rink, despite recovering from an injury, managed to compare Argentina with Gonçalo. Pinto (29 and 30 m), which earned the first red lead (4-5). But the boardwashing did not happen because Reinaldo García, Xavi Barroso and Telmo Pinto scored four goals in nine minutes (35, 39, 41 and 43 m) and the team’s 10th error. Carlos Nicolía broke free kicks (46 m), before Carlo Di Benedetto finished the count, after receiving a blue card for Pablo Álvarez (48 m).
