Where to watch the Benfica vs Portimonense game via live stream in the UK, USA, and other territories.
Benfica and Portimonense will be hoping to rebound from setbacks at the end of 2022 when they meet in the Primeira Liga at the Estadio da Luz.
The 3-0 loss to Braga away last Friday marked Benfica’s first Primeira Liga loss of the year. After 14 games, Roger Schmidt’s team is still in the first place, although the lead over Porto in second place has shrunk to five points.
For Portimonense, recent months have been challenging as they have won only three of their previous 13 games in all competitions. Last time out, they were beaten 2-1 by Braga in the Portuguese cup. They are eighth in the table with 19 points.
Date and kickoff time:
Friday, January 6th, 2023
Kickoff time: 9:00 PM CET, 8:00 PM GMT.
