NAME: Paços de Ferreira – SL Benfica

TIME: 20:15 UTC
VENUE: Estadio Capital do Movel, Pacos de Ferreira, Portugal

Table-toppers Benfica make the trip to the Estadio da Mata Real to face basement club Pacos de Ferreira in the Primeira Liga on Thursday night.

While the visitors have lost only one of their 18 games on the road so far this season, the hosts are seeking to avoid an 11th successive game without a win on home soil.


Pacos de Ferreira finally picked up their first league victory of the 2022-23 campaign when they won 1-0 away at Rio Ave just under two weeks ago, but they were unable to come out on top for a second successive game as they were beaten 2-1 at home against Braga last weekend.

Scottish midfielder Jordan Holsgrove restored parity for the Beavers with a stunning strike after Vitinha had opened the scoring just before the hour mark, but the visitors snatched all three points in the 90th minute courtesy of a composed finish from Simon Banza.



Cesar Peixoto has picked up four points from his first three games as Pacos de Ferreira boss after taking the reins on January 2, but his new side remain rooted to the foot of the table and are 12 points adrift from safety at the halfway stage.

Pacos de Ferreira, who finished fifth in the Primeira Liga just two seasons ago, will be seeking revenge when they play host to Benfica after losing 3-2 against the Eagles in the reverse fixture back in August.
