Benfica team news

Two losses across their previous four Primeira Liga outings, including last time out at leaders Porto, has nerfed Benfica’s championship aspirations. The Eagles find themselves in third and seven points behind the aforementioned Dragons but their most recent home game saw them run out 7-1 winners against Marítimo. Nélson Veríssimo, who took charge after Jorge Jesus was dismissed last month, must do without a number of players including forwards Roman Yaremchuk and Pizzi while there’s doubts over the availability of Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez.

Benfica predicted XI: Vlachodimos; Lazaro, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva, Meite, Weigl, Everton, Seferovic, Ramos.

Pacos Ferreira team news

After their opening 16 league outings Paços de Ferreira sit in the mid-table positions. César Peixoto’s men are riding on a wave of momentum after winning their last two league outings. This is after they suffered four defeats on the bounce which was part of a 10-game winless run. If the Beavers are to extend that winning run and pick up a second victory on Benfica soil — that previous success came in March 2001 when they claimed a 2-3 success — then Peixoto must do it without goalkeeper Jordi Almeida and defender Joao Vigario, there’s also doubts over the availability of full-back Jorge Silva.

Pacos Ferreira predicted XI: Ferreira; Lima, Baixinho, Bastos; Fonseca, Carlos, Eustaquio, Ze Uilton; Delgado, Silva, Ferreira.
