Benfica 3-1

Reason for tip

The Eagles have won six of the last 11 meetings with Estoril either 2-1 or 3-1. Canaries have scored at an average of one goal per game at home this saeson, but their wakened defence is unlikely to hold a free-flowing Eagles side that have scored 58 times in 22 games this term.

Estoril vs Benfica Predictions

  • Benfica have won four of their five Primeira Liga away games this season.
  • Estoril have lost two of their last three home league games.
  • Benfica have won six of the last 11 meetings with Estoril either 2-1 or 3-1.

Benfica capable of blowing Estoril away  

Benfica should pick up a routine away win in Estoril on Sunday to maintain their leadership of the Primeira Liga. Benfica fans can be forgiven for getting carried away by what they have seen so far this season – 18 wins and four draws in 22 matches with 58 goals already scored at an average of 2.67 per game.

It has been a long time since a Benfica side elicited such emotions from their supporters as the one that Roger Schmidt has assembled in a short space of time. The team plays attractive, winning football and have the rest of Europe standing to attention after recording their biggest away rout in the modern Champions League on Wednesday to pip PSG to the group win.

Schmidt has enough squad depth to rotate and still get a good win in Estoril – a club that have generally rolled over when the Eagles have visited Estádio António Coimbra da Mota. Benfica have won 14 of the last 16 league and cup meetings between the clubs with scores of 2-1 and 3-1 very prevalent when the Lisbon club make the short journey west.

Weakened Estoril side unlikely to compete

Taking Benfica to win with both teams to score should be a consideration, but Estoril’s failure to register in recent 2-0 home losses to Sporting and Braga suggests the Eagles to win with three or more goals in the game may be more logical. Canaries are also set to be without four first-team players through injury and suspension, including on-loan Benfica winger Tiago Gouveia and first-choice goalkeeper Dani Figueira.

Hence, a healthy Benfica win is forecast in correct score markets with 3-1 preferred over 2-1 or 3-0. Estoril have scored at an average of one goal per game at home this saeson, but their wakened defence is unlikely to hold the free-flowing Eagles.
