Match preview

Will Benfica’s remarkable start to the Primeria Liga season continue?

Last weekend, the league-leaders won again, this time demolishing Estoril Praia 5-1 at Estádio António Coimbra da Mota.

Petar Musa, António Silva and Mihailo Ristić all scoring, while João Mário bagged a brace.

So, as Águias have now won 11 of 12 league matches this season, only dropping points in a goalless draw at Vitória de Guimarães.

Overall, Roger Schmidt’s side are unbeaten in 24 matches across all competitions, topping their Champions League group and reaching the Taça de Portugal fifth round.

Will Benfica, at least, maintain their eight-point gap at the top?

So, a daunting prospect for Gil Vicente, not least because they find themselves in the relegation play-off spot.

Ivo Vieira’s team finished fifth last season, featuring in Europa Conference League qualifying in August, but are now very much in a battle to survive.

The Roosters were hammered in the Taça by Arouca on Wednesday, and have lost five in a row in the league.

Thus, an emphatic home victory looks to be on the cards at Estádio da Luz.
