After the 6-0 win in Estádio da Luz against Belenenses, all Benfica players posed for a photo around Salvio's shirt in the dressing room. The Argentine, who is the only player in the injury list, underwent surgery to his right knee after being stretchered off in the penultimate Liga game last season against Marítimo at home. 

Salvio, alongside his family, watched the game from the hospital in Rome where he had his second operation in as many months.
