Belenenses vs Benfica
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional (Jamor).

Benfica were unlucky to concede stoppage time goal and lose the mid-week Champions League fixture against Ajax 1-0 away in Amsterdam. It was a hard blow for the Eagles and their ambitions of making it to the knockout stage of the elite competition as they sit four points behind the likes of Ajax and Bayern Munich at top two spots in Group E after three rounds.

Will such a painful last-gasp defeat affect team’s spirits ahead of Saturday’s clash with Belenenses at Estadio Nacional? Last term runners-well did well so far in the season when it comes to their domestic displays. They are joint leaders together with Sporting Braga as teams sit at 17 points each after seven rounds of the competition.

Benfica picked up an important 1-0 victory over bitter rivals and defending champions Porto in the previous round. It was striker Haris Seferovic who made the difference taking advantage of an assist from Pizzi.

Belenenses vs Benfica: Head-to-head

Benfica completely dominated this match-up over the course of history.

The Eagles won 26, drew 8 and lost 7 of 41 encounters with Belenenses.

Benfica were on a streak of eight consecutive wins over the Bethlehem before teams shared spoils in a 1-1 draw when they last met in late-January this year.

The Bethlehem scored just one goal in last nine affairs against Benfica.

Belenenses vs Benfica: Prediction

The hosts were struggling for goals in their latest league fixtures as we could witness another clean sheet for Benfica on Saturday evening. Silas’ men failed to find the back of the net in last four Primeira Liga fixtures, three of which ended in goalless draws. The lone defeat in the process came to leaders Braga (0-3 at home).

The Eagles are massive favourites if we know that the Bethlehem allowed three goals whenever they faced a “big four” (we’ll count Braga as the fourth strongest team in the league) this season. Belenenses lost 2-3 to Porto and 0-3 to Braga at home so far this term. Benfica’s clean sheet is the best of betting options you can take from this match.
