The Portimonense team will challenge the Benfica team in a Matchday 6 Portuguese Primeira Liga in Estádio Municipal de Portimão Stadium, Portimão on Sunday, September 24, 2023. For streaming coverage of Portimonense vs Benfica, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Benfica will make an away trip to Portimonense’s headquarters in the sixth week of the Primeira Liga on Sunday afternoon. This match will be a test for both teams who have different ambitions in the league.
The home team just got their first win of the season by beating Vitoria Guimaraes 2-1 at home. They fell behind because of Filipe Relvas’ own goal but managed to turn things around through two Carlinhos goals in the second half.
The win moved Portimonense to 13th position in the standings with five points from five matches. They will try to maintain their positive performance and stay away from the relegation zone.
Meanwhile, Benfica must forget the 2-0 defeat they suffered at home against Salzburg in the UEFA Champions League group stages. Roko Simic starred for the Austrian champions by scoring a goal and providing an assist after Benfica were down to 10 men.
The defeat was of course disappointing for Roger Schmidt’s team who wanted to perform well on the European stage. However, they must immediately shift their focus back to Portugal’s domestic league where they are on a winning run.
Benfica started their title defense with a shock defeat away to Boavista but have since bounced back with four wins in a row. This result moved Benfica up to fourth in the standings with 12 points from five matches. They are still three points behind leaders Sporting Lisbon and do not want to lose any further ground.
In the last meeting between the two teams, Benfica showed their dominance by winning a landslide 5-1 victory at home to Portimonense. However, in several previous meetings, Portimonense was able to provide fierce resistance to Benfica.
Of the last 16 matches between the two teams, Benfica has 11 wins, while Portimonense has two wins, and three matches have ended in draws. Portimonense even beat Benfica 2-0 at home in the 2019/2020 season.
Even though they have a lot of achievements and are the superior team in this match, Benfica should not underestimate Portimonense who of course will play with high enthusiasm in front of their own supporters.
