Benfica vs Tondela Prediction
The drop in points recently has cost Benfica their place on the top of the table. They are just one point behind the toppers, FC Porto, as it stands. And they are 34 points ahead of the visitors in the table.
Apart from the 2-3 win on the road in April 2018, Tondela has never won against the home team in any of the major competitions since 2015.
To make things worse, the Auriverdes has only one win in their last ten league fixtures. Besides, their away form is mixed with 5 losses in 12 appearances, in which four of them came within the last 5 trips.
Having lost only two of their 12 home matches in the campaign so far, Benfica will have more chances to create opportunities in the game.
The home win in full-time is at low odds. Hence, the tips with a combined home win and over 2.5 goals at 1.66 odds will be a suitable bet for the punters.
Since the host is in a pleasant form, we cannot count on Tondela to score. So, the tip for the non-BTTS encounter at 1.50 will be a probable option in ninety minutes.
