Defending champions Benfica and Porto enter Friday's match at Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica (commonly known as Da Luz). Both sides have made promising starts in their domestic tasks and are definitely two of the main Primeira Liga title contenders of the 2023/24 season.
Benfica won their last league match 3-1 over Portimonense on the road, extending their winning streak to five, and putting them in the third spot on 15 points through six matches. They have only wins after the loss 2-3 to Boavista in their opening game for the 2023/24 Primeira Liga campaign
Angel Di Maria has been the key performer for Benfica this season. He leads the club with four goals, two of those having been the first of the match.
Porto earned a 2-1 home victory over Gil Vicente in their last league match to extend their unbeaten start to six games (5 wins and one draw), putting them in second spot on 16 points through six matches, level on points with leaders Sporting Lisbon.
Ivan Marcano and Toni Martinez who have each scored twice are the leading scorers for visitors Porto in their 2023/24 Primeira Liga campaign.

We expect an entertaining match between these two in-form teams on Friday night. Benfica has the home advantage, however, we cannot ignore Porto’s away unbeaten streak and also the fact that the hosts have only won one of their last five home games against Porto. Our last call is for both teams to score in this game, actually, the most common result of matches between Benfica and Porto is 1-1.
