Jorge Jesus called the squad for another training session this morning at 10:00 at the Seixal Futebol Campus.
The reds are fully focused in keeping their gap with the rivals who play on Sunday and Monday.
Nico Gaitán is still not confirmed to feature as the Argentine continues to recover from an injury he suffered in Funchal on 18th January. The creative midfielder has since missed 6 games. The good news is that he has been training with the first team however may not be risked.

Benfica repeated the mid-week result against Vitória de Setúbal, this time for the Liga, with a comfortable 3-0 win over Os Sadinos.
Jardel continued where he left off in the Liga and scored the opener with a well headed effort from Pizzi's corner. Lima added the second minutes before the half with a high placed ball from close range, the ball was a cross from Ola John and the dutchman received the benefit of doubt after a shoulder-to-shoulder barge with Pedro Queirós.

At the press conference in Seixal this afternoon, Jorge Jesus previewed Sunday's Liga match against Vitória de Setúbal in Estádio da Luz. Both sides met midweek in Lisbon for the League Cup semi-final.
"It's a game where both teams know more of each other. Benfica's objective is always the same, to win. V. Setúbal are an opponent who gave us problems in the first 30 minutes of the last game. We know there will be difficulties but Benfica have a lot of momentum when playing in their stadium."

As we warm up for tomorrow's crunch match away against our eternal reptilian foes, we've been reliving some epic derbies of the past. Let us know your best moments in the comments!
Pablo Aimar 2010
As Benfica thundered on in their title winning 2009/10 season, the home fixture to eternal rivals Sporting stuck out as a potential hazard. Sporting hadn't had a season to write home about, but then they rarely do. Nonetheless, a derby is always a derby. And no one would have loved to have taken it away from us more than Sporting. After a tense and goalless first half, finally Óscar "Tacuara" Cardozo diverted a driving cross from Fábio Coentrão into the Sporting goal on 68 minutes, to everyone's joy and relief. But the match was topped off by this sensational goal from Pablito himself.
