Benfica vs Feirense: Prediction
Benfica has struggled to score against some opposition. But against a team who has already conceded at a rate of more than 1 goal per match, they will be dangerous. Maybe the hosts will rest some of their players and rotate the squad too. So we can bet on more than 2.5 goals with 1.57 odd.
The hosts have never lost against these opponents. It is not likely to change anytime soon considering the form of their opponents. Thus it is safe to bet on Benfica to win on the back of their 7 matches win streak against this opposition with 1.62 odd.
