FC Porto vs Benfica Prediction & Tips
Porto-Benfica is what we would call the Scudetto challenge. Always, for the coat of arms and history of the two clubs, but also because this has always told the almanac of the Portuguese league. This year, however, something has changed, because the Lusitanian tournament is led by the outsider Sporting Lisbon, who has taken the lead and also amassed a decent advantage (four points) over her rivals. In short, whoever should be defeated by this direct clash may have to say goodbye to the dreams of the title, because recovering would become somewhat complicated. In fact, it is difficult for the competitors to lose so many points between now and the end of the championship …
Just to give an idea of the imbalance between the big names and the others, just think that after thirteen rounds of the championship the leaders are still unbeaten (eleven wins and two draws).
For Porto and Benfica, however, exactly the same score so far: ten wins, one draw and two defeats already on the passive.
For the strength of the two teams and the statistics to which we were used to, there are far too many goals conceded in the league.
Sixteen in thirteen matches for Porto (eight at home) and exactly one per game for Benfica (six away).
Definitely more flattering are the data relating to goals in assets: almost three per game for Porto (thirty-five in thirteen matches).
Benfica are slightly less prolific, but in any case the Eagles’ offensive department defends well (twenty-eight goals scored). Given the strength of the respective offensive departments, and the difficulties of the two back packs, we decide to focus on the Goals option.
