Team News

Casa Pia AC
Benfica
  • With Neto back available, Paolo Roberto should be moved out wide.
  • Nunes and Varela will be in competition to feature at the heart of the defense.
  • Aside from long-term absentee Juan Bernat, the visitors will have a full squad available.
  • Marcos Leonardo has been used as solo striker lately but Roger Schmidt but switch things here, using Tengstedt upfront.

Prediction

  • The new manager bounce effect seems to be wearing off - Casa Pia lost 3-1 to Estrela de Amadroa last time around after enjoying three matches without a loss while keeping a clean sheet during that period.
  • SL Benfica got back to back victories prior to this match as they've defeated Rangers at the Europa League last 16 before beating Estoril at home. They were far from impressive in both of those games, though, and will need to improve if they want to get all three points here.
  • The visitors might be tired after playing during the week but they have a far better team and enough depth in quality to get the win and keep the pressure on Sporting CP at the top of the table.
