Benfica win

Benfica are strong favourites to pick up a fifth consecutive victory in all competitions. The team has been brilliant at the start of this new season and this is not just limited to the Portuguese league matches. They have also been blitzing past opponents in the Champions League qualifiers as well. Even though Gil Vicente have picked up back-to-back wins, Benfica should be able to get a positive result.

Total goals over 2.5

This match witnesses two teams who have been extremely good going forward this season. Benfica have scored in all competitive matches so far, while Gil Vicente have averaged – even if it is early stages – two goals per game so far.

Both teams to score at least once

Gil Vicente’s fantastic start to the season has been built on a strong offensive run that has seen the team get four goals from the opening two matches. Benfica have kept a clean sheet in three out of the five competitive games, but the upcoming second leg against PSV could distract Jorge Jesus’ men into conceding at least a goal.

Gil Vicente vs Benfica: Match Preview and Team News

Gil Vicente

Gil Vicente have made a strong start to the season that will give them a good belief that they can improve on the achievements of the last two seasons – in which they finished 10th and 11th in the table after having won promotion just at the end of the 2017-18 campaign. Ricardo Soares does not have any injury worries in his squad coming into the match.

Benfica

The strong form shown by Benfica in the early stages of the Portuguese league campaign hints that the club are looking to target a strong finish in domestic and European games. After failing to win the league title in the last two campaigns and failing to get beyond the group stages of the Champions League during this period, Benfica are under a lot of pressure to do well this season. Jesus only has Jan Vertonghen, Rodrigo Pinho, Ferro, Darwin Nunez, and Harris Seferovic unavailable due to injuries.
