Vitoria Guimaraes vs Benfica team news

Guimaraes

Vitoria Guimaraes left it late against Vizela but eventually scored the goal that won them the game. This match had been tight and tense for long periods and looked like it was going to end in a goalless draw until Andre Silva fired in an eightieth-minute winner for the visitors.

The hosts head into Sunday's match with a clean bill of health on no suspended players.

Predicted Lineup: Varela (GK), Gaspar, Fernandes, Mangas, Borevković, Ribeiro, T. Silva, Santos, Händel, J. Silva & A. Silva 

Benfica

Benfica never looked like dropping any points in their last league game at home to Gil Vicente. Arthur Cabral opened the scoring for the hosts after fifteen minutes and before the break, Joao Neves made it 2-0. Rafa added a third and final goal early in the second half to round off a comfortable 3-0 win for Benfica.

Juan Bernat and Casper Tengstedt are expected back in action this month but the game against Braga has come too early for the injured pair.

Predicted Lineup: Trubin (GK), Otamendi, Bah, Morato, Silva, Di María, Aursnes, Rafa, Florentino, Neves & Cabral

Player to Watch: Rafa

Benfica's Rafa has arguably been the club's best-performing player so far this season.

Rafa top scores in the league for Benfica with eight goals but has also provided nine assists, four more than his nearest teammate Aursnes. Angel Di Maria is up there with Rafa in terms of regularly providing goals and assists but the Portuguese star has been more consistent and is less injury-prone.

We're backing Rafa to impress against Vitoria Guimaraes with the kind of performance that will help the visitors secure all three points.
