FC Porto is at top flight in Primeira Liga with 85 points from 32 games. They won 27 times in the league while drawing on 4 and losing only once. They have scored 83 goals in total while conceding a sum of only 22 which shows how profound their squad are.
The Dragons returned to winning ways in their previous fixture, as they edged to a 4-2 home success against Vizela. Even though they lose the remaining 2 games, they will still be the champions due to their impeccable goal difference. If they haven’t lost to Braga, they could likely end this season undefeated.
On the other side, Benfica resides below at the 3rd position on the table with 71 points. Of the 32 matches played, they lost and drew 5 games each while winning on 22 fixtures. Their place in the Europa League is also assured but they can’t finish any higher than second this season, as they lack 8 points behind Sporting Lisbon.
Benfica won the previous Primeira Liga game by 1-0 against Maritimo. They have at least been in excellent form over their previous 4 fixtures, as they have won 3 times during that period, and have been held to one goal-less draw.
