Team News

Vitoria de Guimaraes
  • Aursnes saw the 5th yellow card of the season last time around which means that Rafa will likely play behind the striker, with João Mário being moved out wide.
  • Gonçalo Guedes got a knee injury and is out of action for 4 to 6 weeks, which opens the Starting XI door to David Neres.
  • Gilberto could replace Bah at right-back if Roger Schmidt decides to ring the changes there.
  • Bamba is injured, which could force Moreno to use Dani Silva at the heart of the defense.
  • With Bruno Varela injured, Celton Biai could have a chance to face his former club if recovered. Otherwise, Rafa will have another start in goal.


  • A brace from David Neres allowed SL Benfica to surpass CS Marítimo last time around. The Eagles will try to extend their winning run to 7 matches as they look to keep (or increase) their 8-point distance to 2nd place.
  • Vitória SC's unbeaten run came to an abrupt end as they lost 2-0 to FC Arouca at home. They're at risk of getting into the International break in 6th place, which could add pressure ahead of their trip to Estádio da Luz.
  • SL Benfica have only slipped up three times this season, with one of them happening against Vitória SC. That's not expected to happen again, as the Eagles play in front of their home crowd and are enjoying a wonderful run of form.
