The Classico rivals face each other in a highly awaited fixture in Portuguese league of the season as Benfica and Porto face each other in a match knowing it could very well have a lasting effect in the title hunt at the end of the season.
Defending champions Porto made it late turnaround after winning against Benfica in one of the ending Portuguese Classico in last season, and Benfica should feel unlucky enough to have lost the title to Porto.
This game undoubtedly will affect the title race in long run pretty long though, and the homeside know that a defeat against Porto in this game would prove to be costly in few months to come, at the end of the season.
Both the teams are differentiated just by goal difference with Sporting Club of Portugal at the top of table, leading by a point.
Benfica are likely to be without their star central midfielder, Nemanja Matic in their lineup, with the Serbian choosing to rather make a trip to London to keep him free of injures, according to O Jogo ahead of possible move to Chelsea.HamroFootball.Com.
