Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches. This is a team that likes to score first. They have opened up the score in 12 of the last 15 matches, they have reached half‑time in front in 10 of those 12 matches and have held on to the lead until the end of the 90' in 11 of them.
The team of Benfica is going through a very positive period of the season, as it added seven consecutive triumphs in several competitions: in the last game for the championship Benfica won this opponent by 0-2. In this game away from home the coach Rui Vitoria will keep the team in 4-4-2 favoring the ball and organized strikes through the side aisles: Jonas and Mitroglou should compose the attack of the visiting team. The midfield Pizzi is the highlight of the red team with 6 goals and 5 assists. To progress to the next stage of the competition, Benfica only needs a draw. Apparently the coach can't count on Fejsa, Raul Jimenez, Alex Grimaldo, Celis and Elisha, all injured.
