Benfica will be looking to close the gap on second-placed Sporting CP when they host Vizela in the Primeira Liga on Friday at 8:15pm (UK time).
As Águias are perhaps too far away from league leaders Porto, 10 points back with nine games left to play, but local rivals Sporting CP are much closer for third-placed Benfica to catch – just four points clear. While level on games played, Benfica will be looking to apply the pressure on Sporting who play later in the weekend. Vizela, meanwhile, will be hoping to keep their distance from the drop zone, currently three points above the relegation play-off place.
