Gil Vicente vs Benfica odds
Odds correct as of 16:20 on August 22
Defending champions Benfica, who are looking to win back-to-back titles for the first time since 2017, start to the 2023/24 season did not go to plan, as despite taking the lead through Angel Di Maria early in the first half, they ended up on the losing side against Boavista, who scored a 90th minute equaliser and a 102 minute winner to take all three points in an incredible 3-2 victory. Things got back on track against Estrela da Amadora however, with strikes from Casper Tengstedt and Rafa, who scored for the second game running, handed them a 2-0 win.
Gil Vicente’s first game back, however, went beyond their wildest dreams as they thrashed Portimonense 5-0, with Kanya Fujimoto, who failed to score in the league in the whole of last season, scored twice in the first half before Pedro Tiba, Tidjany Toure and Gabriel Pereira completed the rout. Their first away game was less of a success however, as they fell to a 2-0 defeat to Vitoria de Guimaraes.

Gil Vicente vs Benfica team news
Gil Vicente will be without forwards Murilo and Ali Alipourghara and goalkeeper Stanislav Kritsyuk for the visit of the champions, so Kanya Fujimoto, who scored twice on the opening day, should start just behind Roko Baturina once more.

Murilo, Ali Alipourghara, Stanislav Kritsyuk
Musa serves the second game of his two-game ban after being sent off in the opening game against Boavista, while David Jurásek misses out once more after limping off in the same game. Arthur Cabral should be given another chance up front after disappointing against Estrela da Amadora, but Casper Tengstedt will also be hoping for a starting spot after scoring just one minute after coming on in that match.
