Vizela vs Benfica build-up & previous line-ups:
Newly-promoted Vizela, who are playing in their first Primeira Liga campaign since the 1984/85 season, have started life in the big time on a modest note. Álvaro Pacheco’s side are 12th place on eight points after their opening eight fixtures, which leaves them a win above the bottom three spots. Speaking of victory, they’ve only accumulated one so far, and that success to date came on matchday two when they ran out 2-1 winners against Tondela; the new kids on the block since then have gone on to put together a six-game winless run which includes drawing their five most recent fixtures. Unbeaten in four home matches, this will be their strongest test and in their only home league meeting with Benfica — opening round of the 1985/85 season — they suffered a 1-2 loss. Portugal’s most decorated club also claimed the win in the last competitive showdown, a 2-1 cup win in November 2019. The game saw Samu put the hosts in front before Raúl de Tomás and Carlos Vinícius struck in the final 20 minutes to eliminate Vizela from the Taça de Portugal.
Jorge Jesus’ men will be looking to put behind a humbling Champions League loss at the hands of Bayern Munich behind them. The undisputed German champions ran out 0-4 winners in Lisbon, which compounded the Eagles to a second defeat in three matches. That most recent setback before taking on the Bavarian giants came at home against Portimonense (0-1) which ended a 10-game winning streak which stretches back into last season. The loss means only title rivals FC Porto and defending champions Sporting CP — both a point behind them — remain the league’s only unbeaten teams heading into the ninth matchday. Since a goalless draw at Farense in February, they’ve been imperious on the road; Benfica come into this weekend on the back of winning their last 11 away games in the Primeira Liga subsequently registering 35 goals and conceding five times.
- Vizela (vs Vitória Setúbal): Ivo; Julião, Wilson, Fernandes, Ofori; Guzzo, Silva; Méndez, Samu, Moreira; Cassiano.
- Benfica (vs Bayern Munich): Vlachodimos; Veríssimo, Otamendi, Vertonghen; Almeida, João Mário, Weigl, Grimaldo; Rafa Silva; Núñez, Yaremchuk.

Player to watch: Roman Yaremchuk (Benfica)
Following an eye-catching Euro 2020 performance, which saw him register two goals for Ukraine across five appearances, Roman Yaremchuk swapped Gent for Benfica and he’s so far doing a good job repaying the faith of his new employer. The 25-year-old striker registered a goal on debut before adding three more across his next five Primeira Liga outings. This makes him the club’s leading marksman and more importantly heading into this weekend’s game at Vizela, no fewer than 75% of his league goals have come on the road. In the wider picture, only Simon Banza (5), Fran Navarro (5) and Luis Díaz (6) have netted more times than Yaremchuk in Portugal’s top division after the opening eight rounds.
