Prediction for this match

Benfica continued their battle for a place in the Champions League qualifying finals when they took a 2-0 second leg win against Russian club Spartak Moscow.

After Jorge Jesus’ men had already won a 2-0 victory in Russia, they showed another class and achieved a 4-0 overall victory with goals from Joao Mario and an own goal by the French defender Samuel Gigot.

Back at home, Aguias started his Primeira Liga season with a 2-1 win over Moreirense thanks to quick goals in the first half of Lucas Verissimo and Luca Waldschmidt in 11 minutes.

They go into Saturday’s game in good shape after taking seven wins and one draw this season.

Next up for Benfica is a duel with Arouca, who ended their five-year absence in the Primeira Liga with a 5-0 aggregate win over Rio Ave in the playoffs in May.

Arouquenses was denied a dream start in the league last Saturday when they suffered a 2-0 defeat against new signing Estoril Praia.

In an action-packed affair at the Estadio Municipal de Arouca, André Franco and Ryotaro Meshino scored the victory of last year’s winner in the Segunda League in both halves.

This followed last Sunday’s 1-0 defeat against Rio Ave, which condemned Armando Evangelista‘s men to an early exit from the Taca da Liga.

While the guests on Saturday will try to avoid a third consecutive defeat, they will face an opposing team that is unbeaten in 10 of the last 11 games in all competitions.

Arouca’s only win came in August 2015 thanks to a goal from the 32-year-old striker in the second minute Robertobut Benfica have since taken four straight wins, scored 10 goals and conceded three.
