Team News

  • Fredrik Aursnes serves a match ban after being sent off against Sporting CP, which opens the Starting XI door to either Morato or Carreras at the left-hand side of SL Benfica' defense.
  • Roger Schmidt should rest key players like Rafa, Di María or Florentino, giving João Mário, Tiago Gouveia or Kokçu a chance to start.
  • Alan will likely return to Starting XI after serving a match ban last time around.
  • Ofori is also back available, but Rui Borges will likely opt for a more defensive midfield, meaning that the Ghanaian should be on the bench.


  • After being unable to beat rivals Sporting CP in two consecutive games, SL Benfica defeated Marseille in midweek and are now in a favorable position to get into the UEFA Europa League semi-finals.
  • Moreirense FC are losing some gas right now as it can be shown by their last 2-2 home draw against Estrela where they had a 2-goal lead. Rui Borges' men only won once in the last 5 games and will look to regain some confidence ahead of their trip to Estádio da Luz.
  • With a 4 point-gap to Sporting CP (that could be increased to 7 points since the Lions have a game in hand), SL Benfica might prioritize Europa League over Primeira Liga. However, even playing with least utilized players, the Eagles should have what it takes to beat Moreirense.
