In a pre-season friendly match, Benfica will face Gent at the Estadio Algarve on Friday.

This is Benfica’s first friendly match before the 2021-22 season. Jorge Jesus’ team last competed in a match in May, when they lost to Braga in the Portuguese Cup final. The Eagles’ season came to an end with a 2-0 defeat.

Gent, on the other side, has already begun its preseason preparations. The game will be played after Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s team defeated Lille 1-0. Gianni Bruno’s early goal gave the Buffaloes the lead and gave them the victory over the French champions.


As they prepare for the 2021-22 season, both teams will head into the game wanting to come out unscathed.
