      Belenenses vs Benfica Predictions

      Benfica have won seven straight games, overtaking Porto as the main challenger for the Primeira Liga title and keeping the pressure on Sporting Lisbon at the top. Just two points separate Benfica from the top of the table and their performances have been looking increasingly impressive with a 4-1 away win over Moreirense and a 3-1 thrashing of Arouca the weekend before.

      They’ll be looking to make it eight in a row when they travel to play Belenenses. The home side, who qualified for the Europa League last season, have languished near the bottom of the Primeira Liga table for most of the season so far, but they have put together a run of three unbeaten games, including a pair of 2-1 away wins over Rio Ave and Maritimo.


      Benfica secured a huge 6-0 in the previous Primeira Liga tie in this match-up. They’ve won four straight matches in this clash, including a 2-0 and 3-0 win against Belenenses last season. Belenenses last scored against Benfica in September 2013.

      Team News

      Palmeira and Rafael da Silva are missing from Belenenses squad still and won’t play in this game, while Eduardo Silva and Luisao are the most significant absentees from Benfica’s squad.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      Belenenses haven’t scored against Benfica since 2013 and we just don’t envision them picking up a win this contest. Benfica are on absolute fire, they have a good sized squad to handle midweek football and they’ll be content to play for a gentle one or two goal win with a clean sheet.
