Casa Pia preview: Hoping to stay out of danger

While Casa Pia currently sit in the 11th place in the standings in Primeira Liga, they are really just four points ahead of the first team in the relegation zone at the moment. Meanwhile, the team's form has been rather inconsistent, with two wins, two draws, and two losses in the last six matches in the league.

When it comes to team news, Rafael Brito and Kiki Silva are out with injuries at this time.

Benfica preview: Trying to catch up with Sporting

At the moment, Benfica are in the second place in the standings in Primeira Liga, one point behind Sporting Lisbon, although Sporting also have one match more to play. Benfica have been in good form lately, losing just once since the first-round loss to Boavista, but that one loss was a rough one – a 5-0 trashing against Porto. The team also reached the quarter-finals in Europa League, though they are not among the main favourites to go all the way.

Meanwhile, Juan Bernat is the only name on Benfica's injury list right now.

Predicted LineupTrubin – Aursnes, Silva, Otamendi, Bah – Kokcu, Luis, Silva – Di Maria, Neres, Leonardo

Player to watch: Rafa Silva

Just a few days after scoring the winning goal against Rangers to put Benfica into Europa League quarter-finals, Rafa Silva will be hoping to put his team closer to winning the title in Primeira Liga in the team's upcoming duel against Casa Pia.

Silva to score in the second half?

The experienced forward has netted 12 goals in Liga Portugal this season and eight of those goals were scored in the second halves of matches. So, Silva usually takes his time before delivering the goods, will that be the case against Casa Pia too?
