      Nacional vs Benfica Predictions

      Nacional are one of four Portuguese Primeira Liga teams tied on 17 points. They look like a team that should be able to finish above the relegation zone this season, but they are win-less since November 27, a stretch of five games. They’ve drawn their last two games 2-2, which is encouraging at least in the sense that Nacional have started to show some attacking life scoring four times in two games after tallying just 12 goals in their first 14.

      Benfica have won six of their last seven Primeira Liga matches and three straight. The defending champions might just be starting to find their rhythm and they were certainly rampant in their last outing scoring six goals in a thrashing of Maritimo.

      They are now tied on points with Porto on 37 for second place and they’re four points behind Sporting for first place. There’s growing momentum behind Benfica’s performances and their schedule might just favour a little bit of a run here.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Benfica form

      They’ve really got something going at this point. Benfica look like a quality football team and we’ll back them to maintain current momentum.

      2. Nacional poor defence

      They’ve conceded eight times in their last four games against much lesser attacking groups, we’re not convinced that they’ll manage against Benfica.

      3. -0.5 is a small Asian Handicap

      It’s not far away from a straight forward ‘to win’ bet, and we’re getting Benfica at 1.850 on their -0.5 Asian Handicap.
