Benfica ready to keep unbeaten season intact

Benfica Blog
Benfica have yet to lose a game in a competitive match this season as they get set to host Spanish giant Barcelona at home on Wednesday night in Champions League action. Benfica who's season kicked off August 4th as they went through qualifying for the group stage, have remained unbeaten going 10-2-0 in twelve matches of competitive play to start the season.

Benfica look to keep the unbeaten run intact when they take on Barcelona and are hoping to make a statement in this game that the club means business this season. Benfica's front three of Roman Yaremchuk, Darwin Nunez and Rafa Silva should cause Barcelona fits during the game with a mixture of speed and power as manager Jorge Jesus heads into the game feeling confident of his clubs chances.

Benfica's opening Champions League game ended in a scoreless draw in Kiev against Dynamo but the club was unfortunate not to walk away with all three points. If Benfica is to advance to the round of 16, this home game against a weaker Barcelona side then in the past turns into a must win game for the Lisbon club. Benfica's last win against Barcelona was all the way back in the 1960/61 European Cup Final, a 3-2 victory.
