Benfica win fifth straight league game

Benfica Blog
Benfica have maintained their perfect start to the season after a convincing 5-0 victory over Azorian club Santa Clara earlier today and are now 5-0-0 and sit atop Portugal alone. Benfica have had one of the busier schedules since the start of the season with their league play and their qualification games for the Champions League and have played a total of nine games since their first official game on August 10th against Spartak Moscow.

Benfica fans should not get excited just yet as the club had the same exact start to the season last year before being handed a week six 3-0 drubbing by Boavista that sent the clubs season spiraling. Boavista will look to mimic what they did last season as they will once again be Benfica's Week 6 opponents but will this time have to travel to Benfica's home ground to complete the task. The Lisbon side will be looking to squash any chances of a deja vu by the Porto club and continue on their league run but not before heading to Kiev to take on Dynamo for their opening game of Champions League play.
