Tip Reasoning

  • There have been fewer than four goals in five of Benfica’s six home games this season.
  • Portimonense have been defensively sound away from home this season, conceding once in three games.
  • Portimonense have conceded only nine goals in their last 13 Primeira Liga games.

 Eagles must beware post-Barca comedown

Benfica took the prized Champions League scalp of Barcelona on Wednesday, but must guard against over-confidence when Portimonense bring the Primeira’s best away defensive record to the Luz on Sunday.

Jorge Jesus is an astute tactician who was able to outsmart Ronald Koeman quite easily, but his side will face a very different opponent this weekend.

Portimonense didn’t score enough goals last season, so it was a huge blow when 2020-21 top scorer Beto told the club he wanted out just before the transfer window shut.

Coach Paulo Sérgio has tried to craft an attack-minded team out of what he was left with, but they lack a killer instinct in front of goal.

Practically at full strength for the clash with Benfica, we’d expect Sergio’s team to give it a good go only to come up short in the opposition penalty box.

Although Benfica’s one home Primeira Liga clean sheet this season came against a team down to ten men from the eighth minute, we aren’t positive about the visitors getting on the scoresheet.

The Eagles may only need two goals to feel comfortable enough to take their foot off the gas and move into cruise control, so we are tipping a 2-0 final score.
