Benfica VS Porto

Preview

Benfica and Porto face off at Estádio da Luz on this match of the 30th round of the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

The head to head history between the teams favours Porto with 9 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. Porto has not been able to win at Estádio da Luz since 2011 though.

Analysis of Benfica

Benfica are currently the leaders of the Portuguese table with 74 points coming from 24 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. They have a 93% win rate at home having only once lost points against their rivals Sporting on a 1-1 draw.

The statistical data for the team playing at home are very interesting, they have scored at least once on every match with an amazing average of 2,86 goals per match.

The major absence for this match will be Salvio, the Argentinean winger is injured and will not be playing.

Probable Starters: Júlio César; Maxi Pereira, Jardel, Luisão, Eliseu; Samaris, Pizzi, Ola John, Gaitán; Lima, Jonas.
Coach: Jorge Jesus


Confirmed Lineup: Júlio César, Luisão, M. Pereira, Jardel, Eliseu, A. Samaris, N. Gaitán, Pizzi, Talisca, Lima, Jonas.
Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Analysis of Porto

Lopetegui’s team is currently second on the table with 71 points, 3 behind the leader Benfica. One of their only 2 losses was precisely against the leader by 0-2 at home. It is important to mention that the moral levels of the squad might be decisively low after the 6-1 thrashing against Bayern Munchen last Thursday.

Similarly to their opponent Porto has only once not scored while playing away on a 1-0 loss at Maritimo. Even so, the “Dragons” open the scorecard on 86% of their matches although only winning 75% of them.
The only doubtful player for this match is Cristian Tello, on the last stages of injury recovery.

Probable Starters: Fabiano; Danilo, Maicon, Marcano, Alex Sandro; Casemiro, Herrera, Óliver Torres; Quaresma, Brahimi, Jackson Martínez.
Coach: Julen Lopetegui


Confirmed Lineup: Maicon, Danilo, Ivan Marcano, Alex Sandro, Rúben Neves, Óliver Torres, Casemiro, Evandro, J. Martínez, Y. Brahimi.
Coach: Helton, Lopetegui.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this match is that both teams will score at least once. Looking at their scoring statistics and knowing that both teams have great need of the points in play we expect offensive football to be played since the first minute.
