Tip Reasoning

  • Pacos Ferreira have a lot of players missing for this final game of the season.
  • Benfica have won 12 of their 16 away games this season, scoring multiple goals on 13 occasions.
  • Benfica have beaten Pacos Ferreira nine straight times with an average victory margin of 2.78 goals in that span.

Benfica usually bully Beavers off the park

Benfica can round out the campaign with a convincing win at injury-hit Pacos Ferreira on Friday in a matchup that has become so one-sided that recent editions have been mostly a non-event.

Os Aguias have won nine straight clashes with the Beavers and scored 25 goals more than their opponents across that time, so only the most optimistic Pacos fan would contemplate getting something out of this final-round fixture.

Benfica will finish third in the table no matter what happens here, so caretaker coach Nelson Verissimo could add a couple of young faces from the ranks of Benfica’s Uefa Youth League winning squad – or not. Pacos coach César Peixoto would love that luxury as he is seemingly down to the bare bones for this game.

Major problems for Peixoto as absences stack up

Goalkeeper Igor Vekic and central defender Nuno Lima are suspended, while defenders Jorge Silva, Flávio Ramos, João Vigário and Maracás and striker Koffi are injured. Nuno Santos, who is on loan from Benfica, is also unavailable to face his parent club. Another three regulars – full-backs Juan Delgado and Antunes and midfielder Nicolas Gaitán are also doubtful to feature in any way.

This looks like a good chance for Benfica to round off the season in style and with one eye on the future as we can’t see them slipping up in this game. The Eagles have won 12 of their 16 prior away games this season, scoring multiple goals on 13 occasions, so a bet on the visitors to win with at least two goals in the game fits the bill.

Our correct score forecast for the game is a 2-0 away win because, for all Benfica’s faults in defence this season, they have tightened up of late, conceding just the once in their last four league games.
