It is with good mood and great will that the Benfica football team prepares the home match against Gil Vicente from round 5 of the Liga NOS scheduled for Saturday, at 7:00 pm, at Estádio da Luz.
The big new feature of this Thursday's training session was David Tavares. The center-midfielder trained without any limitation after overcoming the injury sustained in the presentation match against Anderlecht.
But that was not the only good news for Bruno Lage. The coach had the 12 footballers who were absent the week and a half before due to the international break at his disposal: Rúben, Pizzi, Rafa and Ferro (Portugal), Jota and Nuno Tavares (Portugal U-21), Tomás Tavares (Portugal U-19), Odysseas and Samaris (Greece), Seferovic (Switzerland), Svilar (Belgium U-21) and Adel Taarabt (Morocco).
