HEAD TO HEAD

In their previous ten meetings, Benfica recorded nine victories, while only one match ended in a draw. Their last game was played in the Portuguese Cup final, where Benfica celebrated a 2:1 victory.

BENFICA NEWS

Benfica had a disastrous summer - Arsenal defeated them by 5:2, they were even beaten against Hull City, while Young Boys hammered them by 5:1! Of course, they didn't have a full team at their disposal in many of those games, but the players who played didn't show enough quality to play for Benfica this season. They will enter the first competitive game of the season with a low self-confidence level, but they will also play against the team which didn't defeat them for a long time. It is crucial for them to start the season with a victory and a new trophy.

GUIMARAES

Guimaraes was thrilled with the season after it ended, although they failed to win the cup final against Benfica. Now they will have another opportunity to win a trophy, the task which isn't easy, but excellent results in the summer friendly games gave them a glimpse of hope.
