Benfica To Win To Nil

Reason for tip

Benfica won 28 of 34 league games last season and they’ve picked up nine wins from their last 12 clashes with Boavista. The champions should start the new season with a victory and last term they kept a clean sheet in 11 of their 13 away wins.

Benfica 3-0

Reason for tip

The additions of Orkun Kokcu, Arthur Cabral and Angel Di Maria have improved Benfica and last term they scored three goals past Boavista both home and away. Given their stellar defensive record, back them to run out as comfortable 3-0 winners.

Boavista vs Benfica Predictions

  • Benfica won 28 of their 34 league games last season
  • Benfica have won nine of their last 12 meetings with Boavista
  • Benfica recorded 11 of their 13 away wins to nil last term

Portugal’s dominant force can start strongly

Having won the Portuguese Super Cup with a 2-0 victory over Porto in midweek, Benfica will fancy their chances of getting their Primeira Liga title defence off to a flyer at Boavista.

The Eagles won 28 of their 34 league games last season and that included a league double over Boavista, winning 3-0 away and 3-1 at home.

Roger Schmidt’s side were devastating at home and clinical away, where they won 13 of their 17 away trips and conceded only eight goals.

Eleven of those 13 away wins were capped off with a clean sheet and that defensive discipline was evident in Wednesday’s win over Porto, who managed only two shots on target.

If anything, summer signings Orkun Kokcu, Arthur Cabral and Angel Di Maria could mean they become only more dominant.

That spells trouble for the rest in the title race and should especially be of concern to Boavista, who have lost nine of their last 12 rivalries with Benfica.

So an away win to nil is the way to go and correct-score punters should side with 3-0. That was the score when they won here last season and four of their 13 away victories ended that way.
