Clasico Day: the probable eleven for Benfica-FC Porto
Benfica and FC Porto kick off this Friday in classics in the 2023/24 edition of the League, from 20h15, at the Estádio da Luz.
After the victory embodied in the Super Cup in August, Eagles and Dragons are back in action this season, in a match that will have the lead, at least to the condition, at stake.
At Benfica, Alexander Bah and Ángel Di María were doubts for Roger Schmidt, but the German coach ensured that the entire squad trained on the eve of the match, which opens up a number of possibilities in the starting eleven.
On the FC Porto side, Marcano and Pepe are confirmed absences. The Spaniard faces long months of stoppage after a serious knee injury while international Portuguese, who had already missed the match with Gil Vicente, did not recover in time to be used in the Light.
