Benfica v Maritimo Match preview

After registering a 3-0 win over Covilha at home on Wendesday night, Jorge Jesus’ side kicked off their Taca da Liga campaign on a great start. Focus will now be on the Primeira Liga where they are in third place and trail runaway league leaders Porto and Lisbon by four points.

And after falling to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Sporting Lisbon last week, the Eagles would be eager to return to winning ways.

Martimo meanwhile, secured a 4-1 win over Santa Clara last week which ended a winless run of 10 games. The win means that O Maior das Ilhas are in 9th place in the league standings. However, they are only three points away from the relegation zone so results have to pick up.
