The match will take place in Estadio Da Luz in Lisbon on wednesday, 2nd of november, at 7.45 pm local time.
Question marks withing Benfica's starting line-up are accoriding to portugese media above the nomination of international goalkeeper Quim though he is reported to be back in training already. Let's be optimistic and hope he'll be back. Third keeper Rui Nereu has done very well these weeks in replacing the injured Moreira and Quim but Quim is a proven international and many refer to him as the best on his position in Portugal at the moment.
Star player and captain Simão who was as well in doubt and didn't play in last weekend's draw to Naval is constantly reported to be able to play on wednesday.
Italian forward Miccoli remains on the injury-list.
Here's my line-up proposal:
RW Geovanni (João Pereira)
MC Manuel Fernandes
FC Karyaka (Karagounis in a more defensive role)
SC Nuno Gomes
(was unsure at some positions, thus the main alternatives in brackets)
This is one of the vital home-matches we need to gain points from.
