Benfica ready to go with a "Made in Seixal" back four

Benfica Blog
Benfica's famed Seixal academy will be on display when the club gets set to face Rio Ave in Week 27 action as the club looks to right a wayward ship. With the season ending injury suffered by left back Alex Grimaldo, the almost season ending injury to center back Jardel and a suspension to right back Andre Almeida. Bruno Lage will turn to a "Made in Seixal" back four for the clubs upcoming league game. Regular starter Ruben Dias will be joined by his usual center back partner Ferro and two Tavares' on the flanks in Tomas and Nuno. The quartet will have an average age 21.25 years and it will be the first time that the club has featured four defenders from its Seixal academy as starters in a league play. Benfica is looking to salvage a season that has gotten away from them and hope that the youngsters can provide a spark with their energy going forward as the club looks to snap a run of four league draws in a row.
