      « Reply #1 on: July 16 2016, 15:20 »

      Derby County and Benfica meet , for a friendly match. This is the first friendly match of the year for Derby County. As for Benfica, this is the 2nd friendly match of the year, after the previous friendly match against Vitória Setúbal. These two teams have never met before, so this will be the first head‑to‑head between them. Benfica registers significant differences between home and away results, so special attention is due to the home/away factor.

      Analysis of Derby

      The home team plays its first friendly match of the year, after having played 6 friendlies last year, with the following final scores in the last 5: Burton Albion (1‑3) Derby County, Derby County (1‑1) Villarreal, Utrecht (2‑3) Derby County, Meppen (0‑1) Derby County and Northampton Town (0‑1) Derby County and . This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Championship, they got an away win against Hull City by (0‑2). In the last 10 home matches Derby County has won 5, tied 2 and lost 3.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. They have conceded the first goal in 6 of their 15 matches, and have never been able to turn the score around. there is 1 period that stands out in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: they have suffered 7 of their 19 goals between minutes (61'‑75').

      Derby County heads into this match after a loss against Vitoria de Setubal, 1-0, in a match for the Algarve Cup. For this match, coach Nigel Pearson should play in their usual 4-3-3 formation, prioritising a slightly low line and counter attacks through the wings. However, they have a lot of difficulties maintaining ball possession and in their defensive transitions. They should have a starting eleven different then they had in the previous match.

      Analysis of Benfica

      The away team plays its 2nd friendly match of the year, after having faced Vitória Setúbal, in a friendly that ended with the final score: Benfica (0‑0) Vitória Setúbal. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 14 wins and 1 loss in away matches, with 40 goals scored and 10 conceded; against 12 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss at their stadium, with 37 goals scored and 11 conceded. In the last 10 away matches Benfica has won 9 and lost 1.

      Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.

      Benfica heads into this match after a 0-0 draw against Vitoria de Setubal, in a friendly match. They will play in a 4-4-2 formation, prioritising ball possession and organized attack. Pizzi is an important player in their offensive process, as he has a lot of vision. Besides, they should have a different starting eleven, trying to see potential in their not so usual players. Cervi will be one of the players to watch.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most probable scenario for this match will be for Benfica to win. We expect them to dominate most of the match and have the best scoring chances, due to their individual quality. Besides, Derby County has a lot of issues and will probably have another loss in this match.
