Our prediction for this Portugal Primeira Liga match:
Benfica will look to retain top position in the standings when they take on Vizela in the Primeira Liga round 22 on Sunday evening. The Eagles dropped two points in a 2-2 draw with Vitoria Guimaraes, but this seems like a nice opportunity for the title hopefuls to get back on course in the national championship. Defender Juan Bernat is sidelined with a muscle injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Os Vizelenses desperately needed a win against Gil Vicente and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their dreadful losing run, but they will have a mountain to climb in Sunday’s encounter. You should bear in mind that Benfica are eyeing their fifth consecutive win over Vizela in all competitions. To make things even worse for the away team, midfielder Sava Petrov is banned for the match.
Highlighted Player (Angel di Maria):
Angel Di Maria is a professional footballer who played for Argentine side Rosario Central at the start of his senior career. The left-footed winger is very quick on the ball and he often makes life difficult for opposition defenders. After playing for Benfica between 2007 and 2010, the Argentine superstar signed for Real Madrid on 28 June, 2010 for a fee of €25 million + €11 million in bonuses.
Despite impressing with los Blancos in the 2013/2014 La Liga campaign, the club chiefs decided to sell him to Manchester United on 26 August, 2014. Di Maria was playing below expectations at Old Trafford and he scored three goals in 27 league games for the Red Devils.
In 2015 he moved to Paris Saint-Germain and he scored 10 goals in 29 league appearances for les Parisiens in the 2015/2016 Ligue 1 campaign. In 2014 he won the Champions League trophy with Real Madrid and that is considered the biggest success of his career. Angel Di Maria was born in Rosario on 14 February, 1988.
