Match Preview & Team News
Hosts are already four points behind Sporting Lisbon, sitting in 3rd place with 18 points from eight games. There is no room for mistakes anymore, but opponent shouldn’t be underestimated. Pacos de Ferreira are sitting in high 5th position with only four points less than Benfica. This said, 1/4 odds on home win are hardly worth the risk. Read on our Primeira Liga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Jorge Jesus’ squad had really rough time before the international break. First they were shockingly defeated on the road by Boavista 0-3, followed with another 2-3 loss at home against Sporting Lisbon. Haris Seferovic tried to pull a miracle and scored two quick goals in the second half, but obviously that was not enough. The Eagles finally ended the bad run last weekend with a 2-1 win on a rough away day against Maritimo. Everton and Pizzi have played the big roles this time. All other games besides abovementioned losses Benfica won in Primeira Liga.
Their opponents have climbed to 5th place after phenomenal streak which lasts since mid-October. Since then Pacos Ferreira defeated Santa Clara, Porto FC, Famalicao and Moreirense, while duel against Nacional ended without winner. The last time they suffered defeat was on 2nd October.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Five out of the last seven head to head matches between these two opponents have ended Under 2.5 goals. Since we don’t expect much from visitors here, going for this option has good value.
Benfica are in big need of one convincing victory on the domestic scene and they have demolished Pacos in h2h duels recently with ease. We will tip them to win this match and to keep a clean sheet.
