Where to watch Nacional vs Benfica

Nacional vs Benfica live streaming info - January 10, 2016

January 10, 2016 By Andrew Amoth Wandola
12th placed Nacional host 2nd placed Benfica for their Portuguese Liga fixture on January 10, 2015.

The hosts approach this fixture as the underdogs, having failed to win any of their last five matches. On the other hand, Benfica have won four of their last five matches in the Premeira Liga and will be hoping to continue with their good run when they visit their weekend opponents today.

Benfica know very well that if they have to win in order to pile more pressure on league leaders Sporting Lisbon. Similarly, Nacional need a win to avoid dropping into the relegation zone. 

Current Premeira Liga standings Premeira Liga table as of January 9, 2015

Sporting are at the top of the table with 41 points and if they lose to their weekend opponents Braga, who are placed fourth on the table, the league leaders will have only one point standing between them and the second-placed Benfica. This will happen only if Benfica manage to beat Nacional.

Although Nacional are placed 12th on the log with 17 points, they are aware of the fact that three teams below them on the table also have 17 points each. This means that a loss for Nacional and a win for at least two of the three teams below them on the log could spell disaster for Manuel Machado’s men.

Therefore, in a bid to avoid dropping down the league table or relying on mathematical chances to stay safe, the Alvinegros will be looking for nothing less than a win against their weekend visitors.
