Preview:
Vitória Guimarães and Benfica face at Estádio Dom Afonso Henriques, in a match for the 15th round of the Primeira Liga. The head‑to‑head record at this stadium favours the away team, since in the last 5 head‑to‑heads they won 3, tied 1 and lost 1. Nevertheless, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Primeira Liga, played on 17‑05‑2015, they tied (0‑0). Both teams register significant differences between home and away results, so the home/away factor is worth atention.

Analysis of Vitória Guimarães

The home team is currently in the 9th position of the league, with 19 points won, after 5 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Marítimo, by (3‑4). In the last match, they won in an away match against Estoril, by (0‑1). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 6 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. For the league, Vitória Guimarães won 8 points out of 21 possible points, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in the last 7 home matches. 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 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 13 of the last 19 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Vitória de Guimarães comes moralized into this match after beating Estoril away from home by 0-1. A 4 minute goal by Otavio made the difference. The home team has been showing some weaknesses in their offensive construction and finishing, and their best scorer, Henrique Dourado has scored only four times. They use to play in a 4-3-3 formation in which Licá, Henrique and Valente are the responsible player for creating danger at the opposite goal. The defender Dalbert wont be available to this match because of a suspension.




Confirmed Lineup: João Miguel , Pedrão, Bruno Gaspar, Josué Sá, Otavinho, Luís Rocha, B. Saré, Cafú, Licá, Alexandre Silva, Henrique Dourado.
Coach: Sérgio Conceição.

Analysis of Benfica

The away team is currently in the 3rd position of the league, with 31 points won, after 10 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in an away match against União Madeira, by (0‑0). In the last match, they won in a home match against Rio Ave, by (3‑1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 19 goals scored and 16 conceded; against 10 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses at their stadium, with 32 goals scored and 13 conceded. In their last match, for the Taça da Liga, they got a home win against Nacional by (1‑0). In the last 6 away league matches Benfica has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 18 possible.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 away matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 14 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 4 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 8 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 6 of their 14 goals between minutes (0'‑15'); they have conceded 3 of their 7 goals between minutes (31'‑45').

Benfica also arrives moralized to this match after beating Nacional at home by 1-0 in a match to League Cup 1st Fixture. Luisão, Sálvio, Sílvio and Nélson Semedo wont be available due to injuries. In the ohter hand, Andreas Samaris wll also be missing the game due to suspension. 
So, we are expecting that Benfica will play with Fejsa, Jonas, Pizzi, and Renato Sanches at the midfield. The latter of them is at great shape.



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

Betting suggestion:

We are expecting goals from both sides in this match. Despite the head-to-head between the teams be pointing to a tight affair, we expect a very open match with good opportunities for both sides. Benfica needs to win and Guimarães is motivated and playing better so they'll also try to get a good result.
