      Tip Reasoning

      • Benfica have won 6 of their last 7 matches against Pacos Ferreira.
      • Benfica have kept clean sheets in 6 of their last 7 matches against Pacos Ferreira.
      • Benfica have won 5 of their last 6 matches in all competitions.
      • Pacos Ferreira have failed to score in each of their last 3 matches in all competitions.

      Benfica look to maintain their 100% away record

      Benfica sit 7pts clear at the top of the table following a 2-0 win over local rivals Sporting last time out, while Pacos Ferreira could only manage a goalless draw at home to fellow newly-promoted side Gil Vicente. The host have now failed to score in each of their last three matches in league and cup and face a Benfica side on Sunday that have kept clean sheets in each of their last two away games.

      Benfica have an excellent head to head record against Pacos Ferreira, winning 33 of the pairs’ last 41 encounters, and have kept clean sheets against Sunday’s hosts in six of their last seven competitive meetings. The hosts have already lost four times at home in the league and Benfica boast a 100% record on the road, so you can see just why we are expecting another victory for the Portuguese giants this weekend.

      Pacos Fereira average 1.22 points per home game, which is below the league average of 1.52 points, while Benfica average 3.00 points per away game as they have won all of their eight league games on the road so far. The hosts score an average of below 1-goal per home game which doesn’t bode well against a Benfica side that score an average of 2.25 goals per away game and only concede an average of 0.38 goals on the road.

      The hosts simply don’t score enough goals at home

      Only 33% of Pacos Ferreira’s home games have produced over 2.5 goals and only 33% have seen both teams score, while just 38% of Benfica’s away games have seen both sides find the back of the net. The visitors have only conceded 3 goals away from home and have kept clean sheets in 62% of their away games while Pacos Feerira have failed to score in 44% of their home matches, which is why we have backed the visitors to win-to-nil on Sunday.

      A majority of Benfica’s wins this season (10) have been obtained with a margin of 2 goals or more while 3 of Pacos Ferreira’s defeats have been via a margin of 2 goals or more, which is why we have backed a comfortable 2-0 victory for the visitors this weekend. 25% of Benfica’s away games have featured exactly 2 goals and we have backed that very same amount of goals to be scored when these two teams clash on Sunday.

      We’re confident that Benfica will win-to-nil on Sunday and we have predicted a final scoreline of 2-0. The visitors have a 100% record on the road and head into Sunday’s match as the clear form favourites against a Pacos Ferreira side that have failed to score in almost half of their home games this season.
