Portugal: Pablo Sarabia offers the League Cup to Sporting Portugal

Sporting Portugal won the League Cup for the second year in a row, the third in its history, by beating Benfica Lisbon in the final thanks to the decisive goal of the Spaniard Pablo Sarabia (2-1, 78th).

Benfica opened the scoring through Everton (1-0, 23rd) but Sporting equalized thanks to Gonçalo Inacio (1-1, 49th), served by Sarabia, elected man of the match.
