Giant Killing on the cards in Portugal?
Estoril welcome Benfica to Estadio Antonio Coimbra da Mota on Thursday night as they hope to overcome the odds and reach the next round of Taca de Portugal.
Estoril have enjoyed a great season in Segunda Liga, currently sitting in second position and hoping to win promotion to the Primeira Liga. They haven’t had the best of preparation though, losing their last two leagues games and having a man sent off in both matches.
Benfica are currently third in Primeira Liga have also struggled a little in recent weeks. Only winning two of their last six games in all competitions and crashing out of the League Cup at the hands of Braga. However, they’ll be hoping their superior talent on the pitch will see them through this tie.
This match looks quite exciting on paper with both sides capable of scoring goals as well as conceding them and this should lead to a fairly entertaining contest. We think there should be plenty of goalmouth action for both sides and are predicting that both teams will score.
The talent at the disposal of Benfica should prove to be too much for the attacking Estoril side however and we’re forecasting a 3-1 win for the visitors.
