Benfica will look to kick off the new Primeira Liga campaign in style when they host Arouca to their Estadio da Luz on Friday evening.

The Eagles impressed in pre-season, with the team winning each of their five warm-up games; therefore, it seems as if new Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez is not going to be sorely missed in the upcoming season.

A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be pacey winger David Neres, who joined the club earlier this summer, while new boss Roger Schmidt should have a full squad to choose from.

Arouca, on the other hand, were having their ups and downs in pre-season, with the team beating Paris 13, losing to Braga, while sharing the spoils with Chaves.

Anyhow, Armando Evangelista’s troops will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Estadio da Luz showdown.

This match will be played on 05/08/2022 at 20:15

Prediction: 3-1

Recommended Pick: Over 2.5 Goals.
