Gil Vicente vs Benfica build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

Ricardo Soares couldn’t have asked for a better start at the helm of Gil Vicente this season. The Roosters began at home against Boavista and they subsequently ran out 3-0 winners, Fran Navarro grabbing a brace in the process, before visiting Portimonense where they left with a hard earned 0-1 success. Matchday three is understandably their biggest examination so far and in 40 previous meetings with Benfica they’ve picked up just five wins, two of those coming at home, with the last being in May 2001 when Luis Campos’ side claimed a 3-0 success.

It’s also been a perfect start for the Eagles who are still pushing for a place in this season’s Champions League group phase. Jesus’ side are in the box seat following a narrow 2-1 win over PSV Eindhoven at home. On the domestic front they come into this weekend’s game having brushed Moreirense and Arouca aside in the opening two rounds. Unbeaten across their previous 10 away league games — winning all but two of those matches — they haven’t lost at Gil Vicente since that aforementioned 1999/2000 season game when they finished third in the Portuguese top division.

  • Gil Vicente (vs Portimonense): Kritsyuk; Zé Carlos, Cunha, Fernandes, Talocha; Carvalho; Aouacheria, Fujimoto, Pedrinho, Lino; Navarro.
  • Benfica (vs PSV Eindhoven): Vlachodimos; Veríssimo, Morato, Otamendi; Gonçalves, Mário, Weigl, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva, Pizzi; Yaremchuk.

Joao Afonso and Antoine Leautey are missing for the hosts as they remain in Gil Vicente’s physio room. Diogo Gonçalves is expected to return after serving a one-match ban. Jorge Jesus must do without injured quartet Darwin Nunez, Jan Vertonghen, Haris Seferovic and Ferro.

Player to watch: Roman Yaremchuk (Benfica)

The impending transfer of Luca Waldschmidt to Wolfsburg means there will be one less striker for Jesus to call upon. The good news is while Waldschmidt had stepped up — on the virtue of scoring twice across the Eagles opening two league outings — summer recruit Roman Yaremchuk, who joined form Belgian outfit, has settled well into his new surroundings. The 25-year-old Ukranian marksman, who bagged two goals at Euro 2020, opened his Benfica account on debut at Arouca which came after he teed-up for Waldschmidt to score in their 2-0 home win. Yaremchuk is expected to regain his starting berth, can he net in back-to-back league outings?
