Match Preview, Moreirense vs Benfica Lineups, and Team News

Moreirense

The biggest surprise of the season without any doubt is Moreirense. The team without significant achievements is the fifth-ranked team in the country after eleven rounds of matches. Not only that, their current form has been terrific with four wins in the last five matches. Dinis Pinto is injured while Wallisson will miss the game through suspension.

Predicted lineup: Kewin, Marcelo, Amador, Maracas, Fabiano, Ofori, Franco, Kodisang, Alan, Madson, Andre Luis.

Benfica

The Lisbon giant had an opportunity to potentially continue its run in Europe by beating Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday but failed to do so even though they led 3-0 after the opening Half. The focus is now solely on the domestic league where Benfica is leading the charge on goal difference ahead of rivals Sporting. Alexander Bah, Juan Bernat, and David Neres are due to miss the match because of health issues.

Predicted lineup: Trubin, Morato, Otamendi, Silva, Aursnes, Florentino, Neves, Joao Mario, Rafa Silva, Di Maria, Tengstedt.

Player to Watch: Joao Mario

Joao Mario had the time of his life on the pitch during Benfica's Champions League duel versus Inter on Wednesday, he scored a hat-trick during the opening 45 minutes of play, but that wasn't enough to put his team in the winning column. The 30-year-old has been one of the most consistent players for the Lisbon giants this season.

Mario scored twice during the league season in ten appearances while adding an assist to his record. He has accumulated 56 appearances for the Portugal national team and has scored three goals.
