Boavista has had a struggling start in the Primeira Liga season, but will seek a first win on Monday with the domestic giants coming to town.
Reggie Cannon and Boavista welcome Benfica to town in hopes of giving the defending champions its first defeat of the new season. While Benfica is a perfect 5-0-0 this season, Boavista has only three points from its opening five matches. Cannon has went the distance in every match for his new club this season, impressing in draws against Moreirense and Famalicao. The 22-year-old right back will look to limit a Benfica attack which has scored 15 goals so far in league play this season.
Elsewhere, Antonee Robinson and Fulham seek their first league win of the season against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Tyler Adams and RB Leipzig face a tough trip to Borussia Monchengladbach while Pellegrino Matarazzo’s Stuttgart side kicks off the weekend at Schalke. Christian Pulisic returns to Turf Moor in hopes of finding the back of the net for the second time this week. Weston McKennie and Juventus take on Spezia in Serie A play.
