Defending Portuguese giants Benfica prepare to square off against Sporting CP at the Estádio da Luz on Wednesday evening and the home side will need to claim a victory from the encounter in order to avoid being cut adrift in the title race.

After claiming the title in fine fashion last season, Benfica began the current campaign with a lot of optimism but their performances during the current campaign have been underwhelming to say the least.

Having been knocked out of the Champions League without garnering a single point as well as being eliminated in a disappointing fashion in the Taca de Portugal, the Eagles now have only the league to focus on.

Rui Vitoria’s men are currently in third place in the table, just three points off of the top of the standings and with a clash against joint leaders Sporting CP up next on Wednesday, a win will be of paramount importance for the home side.

Sporting CP has certainly made a lot of progress since the arrival of Jorge Jesus as tactician back in 2015 and under the wily old manager, the Lions managed a credible 3rd place finish last season.

It is clear to see that Sporting will be going all out to claim the title this time around after near misses over the past two seasons and they are well on course at the moment, accruing an impressive 39 points from 15 matches.

Now in perhaps the toughest litmus test for Sporting’s title credentials, they will be squaring off against rivals Benfica at the Estádio da Luz on Wednesday.

A win would consolidate their position as genuine contenders for the title this season but a defeat could mean that they will hand the likes of Benfica and Porto an upper hand in the race for the Portuguese crown.
