Guimaraes v Benfica Team News

It’s yet another excellent season for defending champions Benfica. They have only lost once this season (W13 L1) and are right on track to retain the glory. It’s not too early to call.

The Lisbon-based club’s forwards Pizzi and Carlos Vinicius have a combined 21 goals - currently leading the goalscorers charts one after the other.

The Eagles mean business. On the table, Benfica have a solid four-point lead above second-placed Porto who are responsible for their sole defeat. This fixture carries some importance for the away side to build up on momentum after a 2-2 draw with lowly Setubal in domestic cup affairs.

Guimares too have been good. Not excellent. Last season 5th place finish is theirs to better as they as currently sitting on the same spot.

At home, like many Portuguese teams, they have been resolute, losing only once after 7 matches (W4 D2 L1) and are the third-highest scorers with 15 goals. Against an opponent the hosts haven’t cracked for years, this might be the perfect opportunity - right after the break with the holiday blues wearing out.

Otherwise, should Bruno Lage’s boys be on their sharpest, the hosts should expect a difficult match considering Benfica are unbeaten on the road after 6 matches. They have won all of the and with such astonishing fire-power at their disposal, they might have just enough more to grab all the points here.

Injured or Suspended Players:

With a list of doubtful players for the home side, only English forward John O. (Muscle Injury) is confirmed.

The visitors will be without the instrumental duo of Almeida A. (Thigh Injury) and Silva R.(Groin Injury) but should have the rest of the players available for this clash.
