Benfica vs Moreirense Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Lisbon.

Benfica vs Moreirense Prediction

Benfica had their opening match in the campaign on the road against Familicao. The Eagles dominated in every part of the game and won the three points with a 1-5 scoreline. Returning home with that massive win gives a slight edge for the home team prior to the upcoming clash.

The host enjoys the home ground advantage in the game. Besides, the Eagles have a strong squad at their disposal and the visiting side’s defense is likely to have a busy day at the office. Since the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably come in handy.

Moreirense had a losing streak of two games in their schedule from the last term league. However, their new edition in the top tier had started with a win. They were at home in their opening clash against Farense and had a 2-0 win against the promoted side.

The win against a weaker side is not an assuring result for the visit. The Green and Whites have a poor away record from the last season campaign, which is why backing the home team for a win with a -1 handicap seems to be probably the best bet for the punters.

Benfica vs Moreirense Betting tips

  • Over 2.5 goals in full-time @ 1.40 (2/5).
