After defeating Cristiano Ronaldo et al in team Al-Nassr, Benfica will host Celta Vigo at Estadio da Luz in a club friendly match which will take place on Friday 21/7/2023. This will be a test for both teams before starting the new season in their respective leagues.
Benfica are the defending champions of the Portuguese league, having beaten arch-rivals Porto by two points in the final standings. Jorge Jesus’ team has a squad that contains quality players such as Pizzi, Rafa Silva, Darwin Nunez and Haris Seferovic. They have also strengthened their back line by signing Argentinian centre-back Nicolas Otamendi from Manchester City.
On the other hand, Celta Vigo is a team that struggled to survive in La Liga last season, only finishing 13th with 9 points from the relegation zone. Oscar Garcia’s side rely on their star striker, Iago Aspas, who has scored 14 goals and provided 8 assists in the league. They also have several talented young players such as Denis Suarez, Brais Mendez and Santi Mina.

They also have a strong home record, having picked up 8 wins in their last 10 matches at the Estadio da Luz. Only Porto and Braga were able to beat them at home last season.
Meanwhile, Celta Vigo is in very poor form, having lost 5 consecutive away games in all competitions. They also have difficulty scoring goals when playing on foreign fields, scoring only 2 goals in their last 5 matches. They won only 2 of their 19 away matches in La Liga last season.
This match will be the first meeting between the two teams in history. However, if you look at the difference in quality and performance between the two teams, Benfica is clearly more favored to win.
