Team News

Moreirense
Benfica
  • João Camacho is doubtful, which gives Madson another chance to start.
  • Rúben Ismael could feature here as Wallisson and Ofori are unavailable.
  • João Mário will be boosted after his hat-trick against Inter in midweek.
  • Tengstedt has been performing well and might get the nod over Musa up front.

Prediction

  • Moreirense have been solid at the back, which resonates on their three-match winning run with a clean sheet in each. They have only lost to title candidates in the league and both SC Braga and FC Porto both struggled to claim their wins at Moreira de Cónegos.
  • SL Benfica enjoyed a delightful first half against Inter as they were able to go into the break with a 3-0 lead. However, unexpectedly, they allowed Inter to equalise and ended up frustrated to earn a point against last year's Champions League finalists.
  • The Eagles will have a tough challenge here but have the means necessary to the job done. Expect a narrow win from Benfica.
