Estadio Pina Manique will host Saturday’s Primeira Liga game between Casa Pia and Benfica, the two teams who meet for the first time ever in the Portuguese top flight.

Casa Pia played out a goalless draw with Santa Clara on their Primeira Liga debut, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Benfica.

Leonardo Lelo should keep his place in the starting XI despite failing to find the net at the weekend, while Rafael Martins will continue to lead the line for the newcomers.

The Eagles, on the other hand, continue life without new Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez, but the Uruguay international was not sorely missed in a 4-0 crushing of Arouca.

The capital club proved their worth in back-to-back Champions League wins over Midtjylland as well; therefore, anything but a routine away triumph would be a major surprise.

The good news for the visitors is that midfielder Joao Mario has overcome his injury.

This match will be played on 12/08/2022 at 20:15

Prediction: 0-3

Recommended Pick: Away Win.
