With Benfica currently third on the table, the home side would be eager to get an important win that will see them overtake Sporting Lisbon in second place in the league standings.
With only one defeat in 12 league matches this season, you’d expect Benfica to be flying high. However, that isn’t entirely the case because the Eagles still have work to do. They trail leaders by just one point. The home side has won three of the last four games they’ve played and have been scoring goals for fun.
Jorge Jesus would be eager to see his lads carry on the same form against a very dangerous Sporting CP side who have amassed 32 points from 12 games this season. They have let in only four goals this season and Ruben Amorim has done a really great job.
While they haven’t scored as freely as Benfica or Porto, defensive solidity would be key in the long run.
