Tondela team news

No fewer than four players will be missing for Tondela through suspension: João Pedro Machado, Rafael Barbosa, Pedro Augusto and Modibo Sagnan all serve a ban. Jota Gonçalves is out with an ACL injury while Philip Tear also sits out. Without their presence Pako Ayestarán’s men will be attempting to register consecutive league wins. Last time out at Portimonense (1-2) they ended a three-game winless streak (one loss and two draws) which leaves them in 13th place but three points above the relegation places. However, at home they’ve lost three of their past four games, and in six previous such matches against Benfica they’ve failed to win a single one.

Tondela predicted XI: Trigueira; Almeida, Quaresma, Sagnan, Borges; Augusto, Undabarrena, Barbosa; Agra, Dos Anjos, Avilés.

Benfica team news

Pressure is already mounting on Benfica head coach Nelson Veríssimo after losing back-to-back in all competitions. Last time out they suffered a second league game across five matches which subsequently leaves them 12 points behind top spot. The Eagles, who sit third, come into this weekend’s game on the back of winning 15 of their last 17 road games. On the injury front, Roman Yaremchuk is missing after suffering an eye injury. That being said, Gonçalo Ramos is expected to retain his spot up front, the 20-year-old Portuguese marksman has netted in each of Benfica’s last two Primeira Liga outings.

Benfica predicted XI: Vlachodimos; Almeida, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo; Weigl, Bernardo, Meïté; Gonçalves, Ramos, Éverton.
