BEN vs RIO live: BEN vs RIO Dream11 match preview

SL Benfica start the game following a disappointing run of form after being knocked out of the Europa League by Arsenal in their last competitive outing. Currently, on a four-match winless run, the hosts are slotted fourth on the league table having managed to record 11 wins, six draws, and lose three games this season. With 39 points from 20 league games so far, Jorge Jesus' men will see this match as an opportunity to bridge the gap between them and third-placed FC Porto and consolidate their position in the top four of the league.

Rio Ave, on the other hand, are currently slotted 10th on the Primeira Liga table, having registered five wins, while playing out seven draws and losing eight league games this season. With just 22 points from 20 games, the visitors will walk into the game following a narrow 0-1 loss to Famlicao in their last competitive outing and will be itching to get back to winning ways. However, Miguel Cardoso's men face an uphill task in the form of Benfica, who have been amongst the standout teams in the league this season
