Benfica’s season just keeps on getting better and better.
On Tuesday night, the Eagles booked their place in the Champions League knockout stages, thanks to a thrilling 4-3 victory over Juventus.
António Silva broke the deadlock, João Mário converted a penalty and Rafa Silva bagged a brace, featuring an impudent little flick.
Including qualifiers, Roger Schmidt’s team have now won seven of nine Champions League matches, managing a pair of draws with PSG too.
So, next Wednesday, if Benfica beat Maccabi Haifa in Israel and PSG slip-up in Turin, they’ll win the group.
Domestically, the Reds are now six points clear at the top, following last Friday night’s victory over FC Porto.
Rafa Silva on target again, getting the only goal of the night at Estádio do Dragão.
Benfica are still unbeaten this season, a run of 20 matches, so will they continue that streak here?
Chaves meanwhile are newly-promoted, having beaten Moreirense in last season’s play-offs.
Given that, Vítor Campelos’ team will be delighted with their current position of ninth, seven points clear of danger.
Last Sunday, João Mendes bagged a brace, Jonathan Arriba also netted, as Flavienses beat Gil Vicente 3-1 at Estádio Municipal Eng. Manuel Branco Teixeira.
Here though, Benfica are likely to cruise to victory at Estádio da Luz.
