Belenenses vs Benfica
Portuguese – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 19:00 UK / 20:00 CET
Venue: Estádio Nacional do Jamor (Lisabon – Oeiras).
The hosts are showing the same bad start to this season like the previous one. They have just one win from their overall last ten matches. Their loss to Santa Clara in the Portugal Cup was the first this season. Then the draw with Portimonense in Primeira Liga clearly set them on a back foot.
The visitors, on the other hand, were the champions in the prior season, topping the table with a promotion to the Champions League Group stages. They have won all the last ten overall matches on their chart. Including the latest 5-0 win against Ferreira.
Despite playing home matches, Belenenses are struggling to find a win in the home ground. At home, they have only two wins to their names from ten encounters. With the visitors, their stats are much stronger with seven wins from ten away matches recently.
