Benfica vs Rio Ave possible lineups, team news, TV Channel for Primeira Liga 2023/24


Benfica will host Rio Ave at the Estadio da Luz on Sunday in the next round of the 2023-24 Primeira Liga campaign.

The home side are enjoying a great run of results at the moment as they look to successfully defend their Primeira Liga title. They picked up a comfortable 3-0 win over Arouca in their last league game before beating Sporting Braga 3-2 in the last 16 of the Taca da Portugal earlier in the week.

Benfica is second in the league table with 39 points from 16 matches. They are just one point behind rivals Sporting at the top of the table and could leapfrog them on Sunday.

Rio Ave, meanwhile, have had their struggles this season and currently find themselves just outside the relegation zone as the halfway point of the season approaches. However, they returned to winning ways last weekend with a 2-0 victory over Portimonense through second-half goals from Ghana’s Emmanuel Boateng and former Porto player Ze Manuel.

The visitors are 15th in the table with 15 points picked up so far and will be looking to add to that tally this weekend.

Benfica possible starting lineup:

Trubin; Aursnes, Otamendi, Silva, Morato; Neves, Luis; Di Maria, Silva, Mario; Cabral

Rio Ave possible starting lineup:

Jhonatan; Sa, Santos, Nobrega; Costinha, Guga, Oudrhiri, Ronaldo; Boateng, Ruiz, Joca
