Benfica vs Moreirense: Preview and Predictions for the Championship Clash

Between European games and to try, as much as possible, to put pressure on rival Sporting, Benfica has no rest in the championship and receives, in Luz, an always difficult Moreirense, who has been close to the top-6 and is already used to creating difficulties for places. summits.

The environment in eagles is, at this stage, anything but stable. The red team even beat Marseille (2-1) in the middle of the week and left good indications, despite the results, in the two derbies with Sporting, but the atmosphere at the Estádio da Luz against the French was astounding, to the point where fans whistled the team and Roger Schmidt at the end of the match.

Given the lack of a preview press conference on Benfica’s part for this game – justified by the «proximity between games» – we can only speculate about the approach that the German coach will have for this game, but taking into account that the Europa League is the big point of interest at this stage, some rotation is expected, maintaining respect for a difficult opponent. In addition to the suspended Otamendi and Aursnes, names like Florentino Luís, Di María or even Rafa Silva could well get some rest. We’ll see how far the rotation goes.

Turning the page to Moreira de Cónegos, we have a team that has surprised the most, positively, in the Portuguese championship this season, which was even considered for European accounts at one point, although it has lost ground in that race in the last few years. journeys. Despite this, they have already shown this season, in the 1st round (0-0) who know how to stop the eagle.

Already match preview, Rui Borges highlighted the importance of Moreirense remaining true to itself against an opponent with this power, regardless of the opponent’s choices. Therefore, no major changes are expected in the canon starting eleven. The biggest doubts arise in the core, with the returns of Ofori and Alanzinho, but as Benfica is a team used to having the ball, hard-working midfielders like Castro and Rúben Ismael could make sense.

Tough canons

Historically speaking, Benfica has a clear advantage in the 33 duels with Moreirense, with 23 victories against just two of the canons, but the scenario has changed a little in recent seasons and proof of this is that we have had five draws in the last seven duels. Something to keep in mind.
