Benfica take on Nacional on Sunday, needing a win to reclaim top spot in the Liga NOS. They will have to do so without Álex Grimaldo (abdomen), Lisandro López (leg & knee), and Raúl Jiménez (ankle).

New signing Filipe Augusto goes straight into the squad, and Eduardo Salvio has recovered after his ankle sprain. Pizzi is alleged to be suffering from muscle fatigue, but has nonetheless been included. Marcelo Hermes drops out of the squad, while André Horta is still rebuilding his fitness.

Sunday's game at the Estádio da Luz kicks off at 18:00 local time.

Goalkeepers: Ederson and Júlio César

Defenders: Luisão, Lindelöf, Jardel, Eliseu, André Almeida and Nélson Semedo

Midfielders: Fejsa, Filipe Augusto, Samaris, Carrillo, Živković, Salvio, Pizzi, Cervi and Rafa Silva

Forwards: Jonas, Mitroglou and Jović
