Benfica vs Portimonense Prediction
Hosts would surely be happy to return to winning ways after losing Super Cup duel to Porto FC on 23rd December 0-2 FT. The most recent streak in Primeira Liga has been very decent, having three wins in the last three appearances versus Maritimo, Pacos de Ferreira and Gil Vicente. Benfica have dropped six points so far, and that happened in a span of five days in early November. They were defeated on the road by Boavista, followed with a home loss to Sporting Braga.
Coach Jorge Jesus is surely satisfied with the efficiency of his attacking duo. Waldschmidt and Seferovic scored total of 11 goals so far, which is almost half of all Benfica’s goals. Backing any of these two players in the goalscorers market to score at anytime would be a reasonable move. It’s hard to expect much from last placed team at Da Luz. Portimonense have scored only six goals so far in this campaign, so we feel comfortable with backing Benfica’s victory to nil’.
