Now, the Lisbon team have 18 trophies (six times in the last 11 finals) while their closest followers SC Espinho remained at 12.

According to the Portuguese Volleyball Federation website, the match was filled with many errors on both sides, especially in the service, in which Benfica’s greater offensive power prevailed.
