Santa Clara team news

Jorge Simão must do without four players this weekend. Marco Pereira, Bruno Jordão and Stevanovic are sidelined with respective injuries while full-back Sagna serves a suspension following his sending off in Santa Clara’s goalless draw against Portimonense last time out. After that aforementioned stalemate Simão could make several changes with the likes of forwards Ricardinho, Allano and defensive midfielder Anderson Carvalho all pushing for starts.

Benfica team news

There are no major injury worries for Benfica though centre-back Nicolás Otamendi is suspended. Morato and Lucas Veríssimo are options to come in for the World Cup winner. Gonçalo Ramos extended his total for the campaign to 11 goals after registering a brace in Benfica’s 2-2 draw with Sporting on matchday 16. David Neres is hoping to start after coming off the bench. The former Ajax winger has netted four goals and created three more across 13 appearances to date.
