It’s been a terrible seven days for Benfica. This time last week, the Eagles were confident of not only winning the Portuguese championship, but they also had high hopes of claiming victory against Chelsea in the Europa League final. Seven days later both those dreams are shot.

Benfica suffered their first league defeat of the season to Porto in the final minute of their ”Game of the Century” last weekend to slip into second place in the Liga Sagres, while the Eagles’ desperation was magnified when Branislav Ivanovic header home a 93rd minute winner for Chelsea in Amsterdam.
Nevertheless, Benfica have a responsibility to themselves and their fans to pick up three points against Moreirense on Sunday to give themselves the tiniest hope of scooping the league championship from under Porto’s noses.
The formula is simple. If Porto beat Pacos on Sunday, the Dragons win the league. Anything less than a draw for Porto would allow Benfica to win the title with victory.
Beating Moreirense may not be so straightforward, however. Although the minnows look beatable on paper sitting second bottom in the division, Moreirense need to pick up any points they can in order to complete a famous last day great escape to avoid the drop.
Benfica - Bruno Varela; André Almeida, Louie, Miguel Vítor, Jardel, Nemanja Matic, Carlos Martins, André Gomes, Urreta; Rodrigo, Óscar Cardozo.
Moreirense - Ricardo Andrade; Chapel Hannibal, Paulinho, Nilson, Florent; Filipe Gonçalves, Renato, Tales, Fábio Espinho; Rafael Lopes, Kinkela.
