Benfica will look to continue their flawless start to the Primeira Liga campaign when they travel to Vitoria on Saturday at 8.30pm (UK time).
Roger Schmidt has adapted to Portuguese football like a duck to water. The German tactician left PSV Eindhoven in the summer for Benfica and has so far enjoyed a perfect start to 2022/23 in all competitions. Incredibly, The Eagles have won all 18 of their games under Schmidt, including friendlies, European qualifiers, Primeira Liga games and the Champions League. They most recently beat Juventus 2-1 in Turin, before smashing Maritimo 5-0. It looks like an uphill task for Vitoria, who are down in ninth and have won just three of their opening seven Primeira Liga games.

Vitoria team news
Academy graduate Tomas Handel remains out of action for the hosts and is yet to feature this season. He is joined by teenager Maga, who fractured his collarbone towards the backend of last month. Other than that, head coach Moreno should have a solid selection of players to choose from.
