Benfica vs Boavista build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Heading into the sixth matchday of this Primeira Liga season just one Portuguese top-flight club is not only unbeaten but with a 100% record. Chasing their first championship since 2018/19 Benfica opened at Moreirense and ran out 1-2 winners. They followed that up with back-to-back 2-0 wins over Arouca and Gil Vicente. Just before international football resumed Tondela put up a good fight, but Jorge Jesus’ men claimed a 2-1 success, after returning from the break Benfica visited Santa Clara and put five past them without reply. This will be their 95th league meeting with Boavista and across those previous outings Benfica secured 49 wins and in their most recent meeting The Eagles won 2-0 with Haris Seferović grabbing a brace.
The last time Boavista won on the road at Benfica came in March 1999 when a Jaime Pacheco-led Panthers claimed a 0-3 success despite finishing that game with ten men. Since then it’s been 16 consecutive visits without a victory and five points claimed. Of those 11 defeats the last four have come on the bounce. So far they’ve started this season modestly, João Pedro Sousa’s men find themselves sixth in the embryonic table after collecting eight points from 15 available. Things started awry when they suffered a 3-0 loss at Gil Vicente but they recovered well by registering back-to-back home wins over Paços Ferreira and Santa Clara before things cooled down with consecutive 1-1 draws against Vizela and Portimonense. In the former, Boavista snatched a draw from the jaws of victory, while they rescued a point in the latter when Petar Musa netted a 90th minute equaliser.
- Benfica (vs Dynamo Kyiv): Vlachodimos; Otamendi, Vertonghen, Morato; Gilberto, João Mário, Weigl, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva, Yaremchuk, Éverton.
- Boavista (vs Portimonense): Bracali; Nathan, Porozo, Abascal; Malheiro, Makouta, Pérez, Hamache; Sauer, Musa, Gorré.

Player to watch: Darwin Núñez (Benfica)
It’s fair to say Benfica have another potential South American megastar on their books. Darwin Núñez embarked on a well trodden path when he joined the Lisbon giants from Spanish outfit Almería last summer. The former Peñarol academy graduate, who has already been linked with a host of European super clubs, ended his debut campaign having netted six goals across 29 league matches while creating a further 10 for his teammates. He missed The Eagles opening two Primeira Liga matches due to recovering from a recent knee surgery, but he’s featured in their last three league outings, and last time out the 22-year-old forward grabbed a brace as Benfica humbled Santa Clara on the road.
