O CLASSICO

Good evening and welcome along to live coverage of the heavyweight clash from Portugal as Porto host Benfica.

The sides are currently locked together on 31 points and in joint-second in Liga Nos, four points behind the unbeaten leaders Sporting Lisbon.

Sporting are currently in action at the moment and lead Rio Ave 1-0 thanks to a Pedro Goncalves goal.

The hosts have won an impressive 15 of their last 16 games while also losing only one of their last 18 home league games.

Porto also top the goalscoring charts, scoring 35 times in their 13 league games up until tonight.

Benfica themselves have one defeat in their last 14 games, including winning six of the last eight games they’ve played.

As you’d expect, only the two teams above them have scored more this campaign, meaning they sit in third on goal difference – four behind Porto.

The pair last met in the Portuguese Super Cup on December 23.

Sergio Olivieira – who has five goals in his last six appearances in all competitions – opened the scoring from the spot in the first half, sending the keeper the wrong way.

Luis Diaz made sure of the win in the last minute, receiving a through ball from Corona before firing home low into the bottom corner from an angle.

With 21 bookings in the last three meetings between these two, it’s safe to expect fireworks at some point tonight.

But three points is invaluable to tonight’s winners so keeping a full team on the park is a must.

It promises to be a good one and we are underway at 9pm.

Team news on it’s way.
