Stadium:Estádio da Luz (Lisbon) Portugal
Since the start of the season, Benfica has defeated everyone who came across its path. They finished the group stage of the Champions League as the first ahead of giants such as Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus. Before the break due to the World Cup in Qatar, it was on a nine-game winning streak, which made Benfica to be the only unbeaten team in the Portuguese Primeira. And in the midst of the story about how the European giants are offering a hundred or ten million more for their world champion Enzo Fernandes, it's as if the entire team lost focus on what is most important - the field. And in the last round Braga took advantage of that and in the 14th round of the domestic championship inflicted an unforgettable defeat on the Lisbon Eagles - 3:0. Now Benfica will have chance to bounce back against Portimonense and to get back to winning. Portimonense was also defeated in the last round by Casa Pia and now has 2 defeats in a row.Claim Your Sign-Up Bonus!
