Braga vs Benfica build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
A run of seven wins across their previous nine league outings has seen Braga threaten Porto — as well as this weekend’s opponents Benfica — for a place in next season’s Champions League group phase. Carlos Carvalhal’s men are the league’s form side but couldn’t make it five wins on the bounce last time out as Famalicão held Os Arcebispos to a 2-2 draw. At home, though, Braga have only dropped two points in their last 10 outings at Estádio Municipal de Braga and that came in February when Nicolás Gaitán rescued a point against Porto (2-2).
If they can register a second consecutive away win then Benfica would usurp Braga into third place. However that’s easier said than done as Jorge Jesus’ men have won just one of their previous six matches away from Estádio da Luz heading into this latest round. That said, The Eagles aren’t easy to beat, across those six outings their sole defeat came at the hands of league leaders (and city rivals) Sporting, who could only manage to run out 1-0 winners last month.
- Braga (vs Famalicão): Matheus; Esgaio, Tormena, Rodrigues, Borja; Piazon, Fransérgio, Al Musrati, Galeno; Horta, Ruiz.
- Benfica (vs Boavista): Leite; Gonçalves, Veríssimo, Otamendi, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva, Taarabt, Weigl, Pedrinho; Waldschmidt, Seferovic.
David Carmo, Francisco Moura and Rui Fonte sit this game out for Braga while Benfica only have Andre Almeida missing when they visit the aesthetically pleasing Estádio Municipal de Braga.

Player to watch: Darwin Núñez (Benfica)
A blistering start to life in Portugal’s top division, registering five goals and assisting another in Benfica’s opening five league outings, saw Darwin Núñez already linked with a plethora of super clubs, most notably Barcelona with some observers feeling he could potentially fill a Messi-shaped hole. Since then, Uruguay’s next big thing has ebbed and flowed regarding individual performances. Nevertheless he’s found the net on three more occasions while picking up two more assists. His last strike though came at Famalicão in early February and last time out the 21-year-old returned to league action following a spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury and he’s expected to feature against Braga.
