Casa Pia vs Benfica Prediction
We can see Casa Pia recording inconsistent winless outcomes before entering this Liga Portugal season. Following their recent form from the pre season friendlies, they started off this season with a goalless draw against Santa Clara.
Casa Pia had a strong form at home throughout the past season. But they failed to maintain the same here after gaining the promotion to the first division. They are winless in each of their past two home outings.
On the other side, Benfica were enjoying their impressive run in the pre season friendlies. They have won each of their five friendly outings post the completion of the past season. This includes strong outfits across different competitions.
Benfica have played a couple of highly competitive fixtures too. Still, their pace remains the same. They are currently following a winning streak for nine games across all competitions. Their opening Liga Portugal fixture this season against Arouca ended up in a motivating 4-0 win too.
Considering all the above stats, we are of the view that Benfica will end up sealing a comfortable win against the new comer Casa Pia this Saturday.
