Benfica and FC Porto could hardly be in more contrasting form going into Friday night’s clássico at the Estádio da Luz.
The reigning Portuguese champions have recovered from a shaky start to the season and have been in magnificent form over the last couple of months, reeling off 11 consecutive wins during which time they have scored an incredible 36 goals.
Porto, on the other hand, continue to be unrecognisable from the all-conquering machine of just a few years ago. Since Christmas the Dragons have lost 6 out of 12 games and defeat in Lisbon will surely end their hopes of lifting this season’s Portuguese title.
