Benfica and Marítimo face at Estádio do Sport Lisboa and Benfica (da Luz), in a match for the 16th round of the Primeira Liga. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 6 wins in the last 6 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 23‑05‑2015, in a match for the Primeira Liga, Benfica won by (4‑1). The goals of the match were scored by Lima (6' and 59' ) and Jonas (42' and 83' ), for Benfica, and by M. Marega (31' ), for Marítimo.

Analysis of Benfica

After 11 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, the home team is in the 3rd position, havinf won 34 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Vitória Guimarães by (0‑1), after in the previous match they have won (3‑1) at home, against Rio Ave. For the league, Benfica won 21 points out of 24 possible points, after 7 wins and 1 loss in the last 8 home matches.

They haven’t lost any of the last 8 matches for this competition. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 7 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Benfica comes to this match motivated by a 0-1 away win over Guimarães. Luisão, Salvio, Sílvio and Nélson Semedo are the main absences in the home team, since they are still recovering from injuries. Coach Ru iVitória should have Andreas Samaris return to the starting 11, after his suspension period. Therefore, Benfica should play with Gaitán, Pizzi, Samaris and Renato Sanches in the midfield. Benfica has been irregular this season, alternating good exhibitions with less convincing ones.

Confirmed Lineup: Júlio César, Jardel, Eliseu, L. López, André Almeida, Pizzi, L. Fejsa, Renato Sanches, M. Carcela, Jonas, R. Jiménez.
Coach: Rui Vitória.

Analysis of Marítimo

The away team is currently in the 10th position of the league, with 18 points won, after 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Arouca, by (4‑1). In the last match, they tied in a home match against Estoril, by (1‑1). In the last 8 away league matches Marítimo has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 24 possible. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 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 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

Marítimo comes to this match after a 1-1 home draw against Estoril. Giant Dyego Sousa, strong in areal play, is the main offensive reference of the team. Against a stronger opponent, we expect Marítimo to present a defensive strategy and try to explore counterattacks. Rúben Ferreira and Fransérgio are suspended, after having accumulated 5 yellow cards.

Confirmed Lineup: R. Salin, Briguel, Deyvison, Raúl Silva, João Diogo, Éber, Tiago Rodrigues, Fernando Ferreira, Edgar Costa, M. Marega, Dyego Sousa.
Coach: Nelo Vingada.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario is that Marítimo won’t score. The home team should present a defensive strategy, to postpone a goal by Benfica as much as possible. Moreover, two key players are unavailable for this match, so they won’t be as strong as usual.
