Right from the start of the campaign, these two are scoring goals in huge numbers, and to complement it they are delivering good defensive displays as well.
However, arch-rivals of both teams, Benfica, are placed at the top of the table. And this is something either team will not all be pleased about.
They just cannot risk dropping points, and let Benfica build an even bigger lead.
As such, a win is a must for either team this Friday, and judging their form and previous h2h clashes, it is expected that we are about to witness a goal-fest.
