Benfica Form

Benfica started the season by beating Porto 2-0 in the Super Cup. They were shocked in their Primeira Liga opener, conceding two late goals to lose 2-1 at Boavista.

Roger Schmidt’s side scored two late goals of their own in a 2-0 win against Estrela da Amadora, the start of a four game winning streak.

The Eagles won 3-2 at Gil Vicente, 4-0 against Vitoria de Guimaraes after playing against 10 men for 71 minutes and 2-1 at Vizela on Saturday.

Benfica Injuries & Team News

Left-back Alejandro Grimaldo left the club with right-back Gilberto and centre-back Lucas Veríssimo moving to Brazil.

Star striker Gonçalo Ramos joined PSG on loan with the deal to be made permanent at the end of the season.

Benfica have signed goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin, left-back David Jurasek, midfielder Orkun Kokcu, winger Ángel Di Maria and Brazilian striker Arthur Cabral.

Salzburg Form

Salzburg haven’t lost this season winning their opening seven matches starting with a 6-0 victory at Ardagger/Viehdorf in the Austrian Cup.

Gerhard Struber’s side won their opening six Bundesliga matches, scoring 16 goals with just two conceded.

Salzburg saw the run snapped on Saturday after a 2-2 draw at Sturm Graz. Samson Baidoo opened the scoring before they fell 2-1 behind, Sekou Koita coming off the bench to win and convert a penalty.


Benfica have won four consecutive games but Salzburg are not used to losing. This should be an entertaining match with BTTS the best bet in Portugal.
