Portugal's Primeira Liga season may be done and dusted, but the competitive action from the 2019/20 campaign is not yet over in the region with the final of the Taca de Portugal still to be played. Follow along with all of the action wherever you are with our Benfica vs Porto live stream guide.

Both teams travel to the Estádio Cidade de Coimbra for today's fixture which sees this year's Primeira Liga champions FC Porto take on O Clássico rivals SL Benfica. The game will take place behind closed doors, as has become commonplace in Europe.

FC Porto clinched their 29th Primeira Liga title this term, finishing 5 points clear of today's opponents Benfica. Despite losing their final game of the season at Braga, the Blue and Whites won 26 of their regular-season games to take home the title. A win in Coimbre tonight would see Sérgio Conceição's men secure the first domestic double since the 2010/11 season.

Benfica have been no slouches this campaign, recording just two fewer wins than their rivals to the north. This will be the third meeting of these two clubs in the Taca de Portugal competition with Benfica coming out on top last time in 2003.

That being said, Porto holds the better recent head-to-head record in all competitions having won in the last three meetings between these teams. Tonight's final is also Benfica caretaker manager Nelson Verissimo's last game in charge before the Jorge Jesus takes over for next season.
