Benfica vs Tondela Prediction & Match Preview

Benfica vs Tondela
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 30th March 2019
Kick-off at 20.30 UK/ 21.30 CET
Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisabon).

This is the moment to move in for the kill for Benfica. If they are serious about their title aspirations in the league, Benfica needs to win this game at any cost. Their main two challengers for the top spot, Braga and Porto, are taking on each other, while they themselves are locking horns with a relegation-battler, and that too at home.

Tondela is winless in their last five league fixtures, and they are rightfully in the relegation zone. With just eight rounds remaining in the competition, things are getting complicated for the team. They will also need to put up with the challenge of Chaves from below, who has just a single-point deficit as of now.

Benfica vs Tondela Prediction

With an opportunity to gain massive ground in the race for the title, Benfica will surely go in for the win this weekend. They are the potential champions, and at home, they are taking on a team, who is not yet sure of their place in the league next season. They have their own relegation battles to deal with, before worrying about an away game against the pole-position holders.

Also, Benfica has a 100% winning record in h2h games, barring a single meeting. Moreover, the team has never kept a clean sheet and has recorded two or more goals in every attempt. In fact, they have managed four or more goals in every home h2h tie bar one.

In addition, Benfica is easily the best offensive team in the league, with them scoring 72 goals so far, while the next best is just 53. Count on them to take control of the proceedings right away. A huge win is on the cards for the title-hopeful.
