Estoril 2 – FC Porto 2 (League Cup, December 30, 2012) Steven Vitoria’s brilliant free-kick fired Estoril ahead, but Porto hit back before the break when Jackson Martinez headed home. The hosts retook the lead early in the second half when Steven Vitoria netted his brace from the penalty spot. Porto snatched a late draw when Joao Moutinho hit a super strike from 25-yards that crashed into the net.

Moreirense 1 – Benfica 1 (League Cup, December 30, 2012) The shock was on the cards at the interval after Nabil Ghilas fired Moreirense ahead minutes before the break. Benfica had a chance to level when Lima was brought down in the box in the second half, but Moreirense keeper Ricardo turned the spot-kick aside. Deep into injury time Benfica pulled level as Oscar Cardozo scored an injury time penalty.
