All eyes will be on Estadio do Dragao when Porto and Benfica face each other in the Primeira Liga derby on Friday evening.
The Dragons aim to build on back-to-back wins over Braga and Portimonense, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against their bitter rivals.
A man to watch in the home team will be Mehdi Taremi, who was rested in the Taca de Portugal win over Anadia at the weekend, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Veteran defender Pepe, though, is likely to miss O Classico with injury. The Eagles, on the other hand, came from behind to beat Rio Ave 4-2 in their last league fixture to retain top position in the standings.
Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the horizon as Porto and Benfica seem to be evenly matched at the moment. Defensive duo Felipe Morato – Lucas Verissimo is sidelined with injuries for the away side.
