Nice are the only non-English opposition Benfica face this pre-season as they begin life under Roger Schmidt.

The former PSV coach will also oversee friendlies against Fulham and Newcastle United, before his side’s Primeira Liga campaign commences at home to Arouca on August 6.

Although, he does head into the season without the firepower of Darwin Nunez, who recently moved to Liverpool after netting 34 goals in all competitions for the Eagles last term.

Nice’s Ligue 1 season begins away at Toulouse on August 7. Before then, Les Aiglons also lock horns with Fulham, Sporting Braga, Roma and Torino.

Lucien Favre is back in charge for a second time after Christophe Galtier’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain,  and the former Borussia Dortmund boss will be looking to build on last season’s fifth-place finish.

Scoreline prediction: Benfica 3-1 Nice
