Lisbon (AFP) –


Benfica beat Maritimo 6-2 in the Portuguese League Cup final in Coimbra on Friday, less than a week after also sealing a third straight league title.

It was also the Lisbon outfit's third consecutive League Cup win, and the match itself was a repeat of last year's final.

The season culminates Sunday with the Portuguese Cup final between Porto and Sporting Braga.
