Nacional vs Benfica build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Even though Nacional are rock bottom they can still escape the drop and maintain their Primeira Liga status. Manuel Machado’s side though have it all to do and that’s because they are six points adrift of safety with three matches left to play this season. Having picked up just one win across their previous 13 league outings has not helped the cause and last time out against Moreirense they snatched a draw from the jaws of victory. Nacional did end a five-game losing streak at home last time out but as good as Vitoria Guimaraes are performing this season Benfica will provide an even sterner examination.

It’s not over until the fat lady sings and she’s warming up her lungs meaning Benfica’s slim championship hopes will go up in smoke. Jorge Jesus’ will now attempt to secure a berth in next season’s Champions League group phase and with three matches remaining they’re currently four points behind Porto who currently occupy that coveted placement. Speaking of the Dragons, they ended Benfica’s quest to win four league games on the bounce last time out, however away from home the Eagles have looked impressive of late having won their last five league games away from Estádio da Luz subsequently registering 17 goals and conceding just once.

  • Nacional (vs Moreirense): António; Júlio César, Pedrão*, Lucas Kal; Freitas, Danilovic, Azouni, Vigário; Bessa; Mendes, Riascos.
  • Benfica (vs Porto): Leite; Veríssimo, Vertonghen, Otamendi; Gonçalves*, Pizzi, Weigl, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva, Seferovic, Éverton.

Pedrao misses out for Nacional after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season. Benfica meanwhile will continue without the services of Jardel, Andre Almeida and Andreas Samaris through injury while Diogo Goncalves serves a ban.


Player to watch: Éverton (Benfica)

Last summer Benfica showed their intent by heavily investing in their squad by signing no fewer than five players who individually cost €10m+ among them was highly sought-after Brazilian forward Éverton and big things were expected of him but until recently he’s not lived up to the billing. Despite netting on debut against Famalicão he’d only score twice in his next 24 league appearances. However, the 25-year-old has bagged three goals across Benfica’s last four Primeira Liga matches, including last time out against FC Porto.
