With nine points from four matches, Benfica is in fourth place in the league standings. They want to add points before their first UEFA Champions League match on Wednesday against RB Salzburg.
On the other hand, Vizela have just tasted their first win in the league this season. Matheus Pereira’s single goal in the 56th minute gave them the full three points against Gil Vicente. Previously, they only got one point from three matches.
The win kept Vizela out of the relegation zone and up to 12th place with four points from four games. They want to surprise Benfica and ruin their record of never losing to the Eagles.

Joao Mario has been a key player for Benfica, scoring goals in his last two matches against Vizela. He was also the team’s top scorer with three goals.
This season Benfica attracted Angel Di Maria from Juventus. The Argentinian returns to the club after 14 years playing abroad. He has scored in his last two league games and three of his last four in all competitions.
