Benfica vs Nice
International – Club Friendlies
Date: Friday, 15 July 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Parque das Cidades.

Benfica have been going through a good stretch of performances slightly. They are finding the back of the net a good rate and have developed some momentum as a result as well.

They had finished 6th in the Turkish top flight the last season and therefore they missed out on any of the European competitions for this upcoming campaign. This has been a major blow for them and they will be eager to make amends this time around.

Meanwhile, Nice had finished 6th in the French top flight.

They will be taking part in the Europa Conference League this season and they really did earn their place in the tournament. Towards the end of the last season, they were in a tough race for this last European spot available in the French top flight.

As these 2 teams lock horns with each other it is expected that we are about to witness goals coming from either end of the pitch.
