Benfica remain perfect in league play

Benfica Blog
Benfica get through Week 7 in Portugal with their perfect record intact after defeating Guimaraes 3-1 on the road and remain in top spot in Portugal four points clear of their nearest rivals FC Porto and Sporting. Benfica received a pair of goals from Roman Yaremchuk and a lone marker from Joao Mario to power Benfica to victory this evening. A late penalty awarded to Guimaraes and converted by Bruno Duarte, spoiled the clubs chance to earn a clean sheet. Benfica are now a perfect 7-0-0 to start the season and have scored a league best nineteen goals while allowing just four against. Jorge Jesus' men have been powered over the last few games by a potent front three of Roman Yaremchuk, Rafa Silva and Darwin Nunez who have combined for nine goals and added two helpers in the clubs last four league games. Benfica will now get set to face Spanish giants Barcelona at home on Wednesday in Champions League action.
