Nuno Tavares will retain spot for Classico

Nuno Tavares will retain his right back spot for this weekends upcoming "O Classico" against FC Porto. The 19 year old Tavares who has appeared in Benfica's first two league games and the season opening Super Cup in place of an injured Andre Almeida has not looked out of place even though he normally plays on the left side of the field. Tavares has contributed a goal and two assists in his first three appearances with the squad while adding an impressive player rating of 7.92 in the first two league games of the season according to Almeida is set to return from a nagging shinbone injury but manager Bruno Lage has decided to go with an in form Tavares in such a crucial encounter against their main rivals for the league crown this season.
