After their disappointing 2021/22 campaign, Benfica cut ties with Jorge Jesus and have installed Schmidt as his successor. The former PSV Eindhoven head coach has been joined in the Portuguese capital by no fewer than six players including winger David Neres and midfielder Enzo Fernández both of whom are looking to make their full debut.

In terms of their pre-season preparations, the Eagles have been electric having won six of their seven club friendlies subsequently registering 18 goals while conceding six times.
