Portugal:
Primeira Liga

Match
start: 22:00 (GMT+2)

The
match that was held last Saturday between the champion of the country
Benfica and the finalist of the national Cup Vitória for Portuguese
Super Cup ended with the significant victory of Portuguese grandee –
3:1. The authors of three scored goals were Jonas, Haris Seferović
and Giménez.

So,
at the same time today Benfica is the champion of Portugal, the
holder of the national Cup and now Portuguese Super Cup winner. And
its first calendar match of the new season Benfica will play against
Braga.

Donors
of top class European clubs

For
many years best clubs of Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland,
Austria are so-called “donors” for European grandees. Among them
is Benfica: income – €163.5 million, debit – €11.5 million.

Exactly
this way we can describe the activity of the champion of Portugal at
transfer market. For three last transfers of the goalkeeper Ederson
to Manchester City, center back Victor Lindelöf to Manchester United
and cornerback Nélson Semedo to Barcelona Benfica has got 110
million.

New
names

But
the author of one of the three scored goals (Swiss goalscorer Haris
Seferović came to the champion of Portugal absolutely free of charge
as free agent). The same thing happened with the new goalkeeper of
Benfica Bruno Varela. What will be the starting lineup of Benfica in
a new season? Traditionally, Rui
Vitória is playing according to the scheme 4-2-3-1:

Varela
(Setúbal) – Almeida, Luizão, Jardel, Grimaldo – Fejsa, Pizzi –
Salvio, Jonas, Chervi – Seferović (Eintracht).

Such
lineup allowed Benfica last Saturday to win Portuguese Super Cup. And
the same lineup will be playing in forthcoming game with Braga.

Match
prediction


Approximately
7-8 years ago the closest opponent of the hosts of Estádio da Luz
was predicted to climb the Olympus. And in May 2011 Braga together
with Porto even reached the final of the Europa League.

But
the team was able only to become the participant of the second by its
status continental status. And that is why the team of Abel Ferrara
is not serious opponent for Benfica.
