Vitoria Guimaraes vs Benfica Predictions

Benfica to win at 2/5 – ★★★

Benfica to win 3-1 at 11/1– ★☆☆

  • Benfica have won 13 of 13 so far this season and show no sign of slowing up.
  • Vitoria Guimaraes slipped up at home to Casa Pia a fortnight after Benfica had 1-0 at the same opponent.
  • Benfica have won 12 and drawn one of their last 14 head-to-head meetings with Guimaraes, outscoring them 30-5.

Eagles can keep on soaring

Benfica have not lost at Estadio Dom Afonso Henriques for ten years and there’s not much chance of Vitoria Guimaraes stopping them in their current mood when they meet in the Primeira Liga on Saturday.

Roger Schmidt’s men have made a perfect start with 13 wins out of 13 in all competitions and didn’t appear to sustain any major injury concerns during the international break.

It goes without saying that they will be up for the clash in Guimaraes as they attempt to win back the Primeira Liga title after three successive fallow seasons.

Away win the best play

Guimaraes have been inconsistent this year and currently sit ninth in the table, below the finishing spot of sixth last term. Os Conquistadores have won two of their three home games by scores of 1-0 and flopped in the other against newly-promoted Casa Pia. They lack a cutting edge up front and may struggle to trouble a Benfica defence that has been well protected this season, shipping only three goals through the first seven games.

A win to nil for the Eagles must be a consideration given they have outscored Guimaraes 30-5 across a lengthy unbeaten run at this stadium that dates back over ten years.

However, there could be a feel-good factor in play here as the hosts have just celebrated their centenary and will not be in the mood to surrender without a fight. The main recommendation here is just to back Benfica to win at their short match price and take a 3-1 away win in correct score markets – which has landed in three of the last five meetings in Guimaraes.
