Benfica visit Estádio Municipal Eng. Manuel Branco Teixeira faces Chaves in the Primeira Liga on Saturday as he looks to keep pace with leaders Sporting CP.
With 22 points from nine games, Benfica are second in the league table, three points behind Sporting, who are still unbeaten in the top flight.
In their last game, the Eagles drew 1-1 with Casa Pia, who canceled out Joao Mario’s first-half opener through Gaizka Larrazabal in the 81st minute.
However, Roger Schmidt’s side beat Arouca 2-0 in the Taca de Liga group stage on Thursday. Angel Di Maria and Arthur Cabral scored in either half as Benfica gained momentum ahead of their Chaves clash.
The Flavienses are 14th in the Portuguese top flight table with seven points and have won just twice. Those wins came in back-to-back meetings with Arouca and Gil Vicente, signaling a return to form. However, a crushing 5-0 loss to Vitoria last weekend dashed any hopes of a comeback.
Meanwhile, Moreno’s side crashed out in the third round of the Taca de Portugal after losing 5-3 on penalties to Canelas 2010 after the two sides played out a 0-0 draw.
