Vizela vs Benfica Kick Off Time

Event details:
NAME: FC Vizela – SL Benfica
DATE: 25 Feb 2023
TIME: 20:30 UTC
VENUE: Estadio do FC Vizela, Vizela, Portugal

Benfica continue their pursuit of a first Primeira Liga title since the 2018-2019 campaign when they go head to head with Vizela at the Estadio do FC Vizela on Saturday.


While the hosts will be looking to snap their three-game winless run, As Aguias set out to pick up a sixth consecutive league victory and extend their lead at the top of the league standings.

Despite being under the cosh for most of the game and seeing less than 40% of the ball possession, Kiki Afonso struck with three minutes left in the game to cancel out Vitor Carvalho’s 55th-minute opener and force a share of the spoils.



Manuel Tulipa’s side have now failed to win any of their last six away matches across all competitions, picking up two draws and losing four since a 2-0 victory at Pacos de Ferreira on November 13.

While Vizela have struggled for results on the road, they have shown resilience on home turf, where they are unbeaten in five straight games across all competitions and have secured 10 points from a possible 12 in the league since the start of December.

The Vizelenses have picked up seven wins, five draws and lost nine of their 21 matches to collect 26 points and sit ninth in the Primeira Liga table, level on points with Chaves, Boavista and Portimonense.



Prior to that, Benfica placed one foot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League as they picked up a 2-0 victory over Club Brugge in the first leg of their last-16 clash on February 12 courtesy of goals from Joao Mario and David Neres.

Roger Schmidt’s men head into the weekend on a run of six wins from their seven league games in 2023, with a 2-2 draw against rivals Sporting Lisbon in another classic Derby de Lisboa showdown on January 15 being the exception
