The Benfica team will challenge the Porto team in a Matchday 7 Portuguese Primeira Liga in Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica Stadium, Lisboa on Friday, September 29, 2023. For streaming coverage of Benfica vs Porto, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
The Estádio da Luz Stadium will be a silent witness to the top match between Benfica and Porto, the two strongest teams in Portugal. This match is not only a classic duel between two eternal rivals, but also a match that determines who will be at the top of the standings in the Portuguese league.
Benfica is in excellent form in the Portuguese league with five consecutive wins, scoring 16 goals, the most in the league. They are currently in third place in the standings, only one point behind the two teams above them, namely Sporting Lisbon and Porto.
They also beat Porto 2-0 in the Portuguese Super Cup match thanks to goals from Angel di Maria and Petar Musa. However, they have also suffered two painful defeats to Boavista in the first round of the Portuguese league and to RB Salzburg at home in the Champions League preliminary round.
Porto also doesn’t want to lose by having high self-confidence. They have been unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions, including a 3-1 win over Shakhtar Donestk in the Champions League preliminary round.
In the Portuguese league, Porto and Sporting Lisbon are the two teams that have never lost and are currently leading the standings. However, Porto was also not free from luck because most of their wins were very narrow and had to be thanks to goals in the last minutes.
This match will be an opportunity for Benfica to prove their strength in the face of their arch-rivals and reclaim the throne. They will have back Joao Neves, a key player in midfield, after missing the previous game. Two of their stars, Angel di Maria and Petar Musa, have also recovered from injury and are ready to play. With a diverse and creative attacking playing style, Benfica will give Porto a headache.
Porto will also not be easy for Benfica to beat for the second time this season. They also have fairly balanced strength, only losing three players, namely Gabriel Veron, Ivan Marcano and Zaidu Sanusi due to injury. With a solid defensive playing style and fast counter attacks, Porto will take advantage of every opportunity to score goals.
