      « Reply #1 on: February 03 2016, 11:31 »

      Belenenses and Benfica meet at Estádio do Restelo, in a match for the 21th round of the Primeira Liga. Benfica got a home win by (6‑0), in the last league head‑to‑head, played in 11‑09‑2015. The recent head‑to‑head record favours the away team, since they have a record of 4 wins and 1 draw in the last 5 matches.

      Analysis of Belenenses

      After 6 wins, 7 draws and 7 losses, the home team is in the 10th position, havinf won 25 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Marítimo by (1‑2), after in the previous match they have tied (3‑3) at home, against Vitória Guimarães. For the league, Belenenses won 16 points out of 27 possible points, after 4 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss in the last 9 home matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 20 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 11 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

      Belenenses comes to this match very motivated by recent results, since they haven’t lost any of the last 5 matches. Coach Julio Velázquez usually organizes his team in a 4-4-2 formation, with Juanto Ortuño and Sturgeon in front. But organizing their offensive play is veteran midfielder Carlos Martins, known for his passing quality and shooting ability. But coach Velázquez will not be able to count on injured Palmeira and Abel Aguilar.

      Analysis of Benfica

      The away team is currently in the 2nd position of the league, with 49 points won, after 16 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Arouca, by (3‑1). In the last match, they won in an away match against Moreirense, by (1‑4). In the last 10 away league matches Benfica has a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 22 points out of 30 possible.

      In this competition, they have a sequence of 4 wins in the last away matches and they haven't lost any of the last 8 away matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 20 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times but have turned the score around in 2. In the last 10 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 3 of their 7 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

      Benfica is going through its best moment in the season and comes to this match after 10 consecutive wins and many high quality offensive exhibitions. Coach Rui Vitória organizes his team in a 4-4-2 formation, privileging ball possession and organized attacks. Pizzi and Nico Gaitán are the maestros of the team and apart from organizing offensive play they also score a few goals. But the player that most stands out is Jonas. The Brazilian striker has scored 22 goals so far and is the best scorer of the league. But the away coach will not be able to count on Luisão, Salvio, André Almeida, Fejsa and Lisandro Lopez,who are all recovering from injuries.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario is that Benfica will win. Despite playing as the away team and facing an opponent that hasn’t lost any of the last 5 matches, Benfica is going through an excellent form moment and has played with great offensive efficiency, since they count on players of great individual quality who have been playing harmoniously. Therefore, the away team should naturally get their 5th consecutive away win.
