Benfica vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Preview and Predictions

Benfica vs Vitoria Guimaraes
Portugal – Primeira Liga
Date: Saturday, 31 March 2018
Kick-Off at 18:15 UK
Venue: Estadio da Luz (Lisbon).

Benfica have nartro3ed the gap behind table-toppers Porto to only two points thanks to an impressive streak of seven consecutive victories in Primeira Liga. Now that they’ve made it this far, it’s really hard to expect slip-ups in the crucial part of the season as the Eagles now only need a single mistake from Porto to have the title destiny in their own hands.

Next up for Rui Vitotria’s men are Vitoria Guimaraes who have nowhere to go in the remaining seven fixtures of the season. Os Vimaranenses have been on a poor run of form losing four and winning one of five league games before finally clinching the victory last time out when they dispatched Desportivo Aves 2-1 in front of the home fans.

Nonetheless, the head coach Jose Peseiro has very few reasons to be optimistic ahead of the trip to the capital knowing that his side has lost six in a row on travels. Furthermore, Guimaraes have shipped two or more goals on seven occasions in last nine matches on the road across competitions. They will thus need a miracle to prevent league’s top scorer Jonas from finding the back of the net for the hosts here. The Brazilian forward has scored six goals in last four appearances for Benfica and his league tally has already exceeded 30.

Benfica vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Head-to-head

Guimaraes have not been a tricky opposition to Benfica in the most recent set of H2H clashes between the two sides.

The Eagles have won eight on the bounce against s Vimaranenses netting three or more goals in three of last four H2H games.

Both teams have scored in each of last three head to head games between the two sides.

Benfica vs Vitoria Guimaraes: Prediction

Everything suggests a pleasant evening for the home team fans on Saturday and we don0t see any troubles for the Eagles to snatch a comprehensive victory at Estadio da Luz.

Since Guimaraes have been very easy to break down lately, we will alternatively take Benfica to net three or more goals in the match at the odds of 1.72.
