Benfica secured the double in Portugal on Sunday, courtesy of a 2-1 cup final victory over Guimaraes at the National Stadium.
The game was preceded by an incredibly over the top spectacle which saw the match ball arriving from the skies via a man on a hover-board…

Spectacular and unnecessary in equal measures!
As for the game itself, second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Eduardo Silva gave Benfica the win which sees the famous club seal their 11th league and cup double.
After Eliseu’s famous moped-driving celebrations earlier this month, one wonders if the Eagles’ post-match dressing celebrations included a hoverboard this time around?
