Vitoria Guimaraes will host Benfica at Estadio Afonso Henriques in a matchday seven fixture in the Primeira Liga on Saturday.

The hosts come into the game on the back of a 2-0 away victory over Liga Portugal 2 side Covilha in the Portuguese League Cup on Tuesday. Nicolas Janvier scored a first-half brace to help his side secure all three points.

Benfica were 3-1 victors over Boavista on home turf in a league game on Monday. Darwin Nunez scored in both halves along with a goal from Julian Weigl to help the capital side secure all three points.

That victory saw the Eagles maintain their four-point lead at the summit in their quest to reclaim the league title. Vitoria are in 10th spot, with seven points accrued from six matches.
