Chaves vs Benfica
Portuguese Primeira Liga
Date: Thursday, 27 September 2018

Benfica expectedly eased past Desportivo Aves 2-0 at home to stay at the very top of the Primeira Liga standings after five rounds of the competition. They won four and drew one so far, but the fine spell of form will be challenged heavily on Thursday evening when the Eagles travel to Estadio Municipal Eng. Manuel Branco Teixeira.

Chaves had a slower start caused by a daunting schedule which included affairs against Porto, Maritimo and Braga. However, the head coach Daniel Ramos managed to find a winning formula in the last couple of weeks and Flavienses come into this high on confidence, unbeaten in last three games across competitions.

The thread includes the 1-1 draw away at Porto in Taca da Liga clash as well as the weekend’s away win over Boavista (1-2) in Primeira.

Chaves vs Benfica: Head-to-head

The head to head stats completely fancy the Eagles here, though.

The visitors won as many as 13 of 14 H2H clashes with Flavienses.

Benfica did not concede a single goal in two last term matches against Chaves.

Flavienses failed to score in last four home games against the Eagles.

Chaves vs Benfica: Prediction

Benfica bagged an impressive 12-goal tally in five games of the season so far. They shipped only three at the other end and they have to be regarded favourites here. However, we just can’t underestimate Chaves who can be a very tough nut to crack in front of the home crowd.

Moreover, Ramos’ men will head into the game with an improved confidence after results against Porto and Boavista. They allowed four goals in last four league games. Additionally, Benfica’s players have a well congested schedule with games against AEK Athens and Porto next week and Rui Vitoria may even mix up his starting line-up here a bit.

This all makes Chaves or Draw double chance look delicious at the 3.40 odds. Punters who like to chase big longshots can try even with the home victory at 9.50. We’ll take a more conservative approach and back Flavienses not to lose by two or more goals difference at the odds of 1.70.

Chaves vs Benfica: Bet Tips

  • Chaves +1.5 handicap @ 1.70 (7/10)
  • Chaves or Draw Double Chance @ 3.40 (12/5).
