Only 3 points ahead the 2nd placed teams. This is simply a MUST WIN match. Trapattoni will use the same lineup for the 3rd consecutive time (it will be the first time it will happen this season).

Even if many people can't see it, Benfica have built their own play style. Sporting have a different style, Braga have another and Rio Ave also have another. What I'm trying to say is that Trapattoni will hardly change that 4-2-3-1 pattern. I can guarantee you the way Benfica are going to play against Leiria. Great part of the first half will possible be to watch how the opponent stands on pitch, in a very patient approach. If we start with two centre-forwards together then we would lose some consistency in midfield. Benfica are a balanced and realistic team. If we play 4-4-2 we might score earlier, it's true. But our defence is not that strong and we could also concede some. I dislike the way our three attacking midfielders is playing but I agree with Trap as we need to keep the standard lineup.
