Benfica vs Boavista Predictions & Tips

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Benfica will try to expand their perfect start in the Primeira Liga to six games if they host Boavista on Monday evening.

However, they face opponents who are currently in sixth place at Boavista, having lost just one of their first five games.


Prediction for this match

After sailing to the championship title last season, Sporting Lisbon Jorge Jesus knew that Benfica needed a quick start to the new campaign.

The champions lurk as challengers for the second year in a row, but the maximum score for the Eagles suggests they will be tough to beat this time around.

While Jesus’ team has yet to compete against one of the top 5 from last season, there was a ruthlessness like how they dismantled Santa Clara with a 5-0 result last week.

It is noteworthy that none of these squads have scored more than two goals in the league so far, but that could soon change with Darwin Nunez is now approaching full fitness.

What is more disappointing is that Benfica could only get a goalless draw in the Champions League at Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday evening.

Boavista are another team with a lot to prove after preventing relegation with just two points in the 2020/21 season.

However under Joao Pedro Sousa, After eight points from their first five games, the Checkered Ones are well on their way to an improved year.

Although they drew 1-1 in a row against Vizela and Portimonense, Sousa is happy that only two goals have been conceded in the last four games.

That record will be put to the test in the next four games with encounters against Pacos de Ferreira, Estoril Praia and Braga after their visit to the Estadio da Luz.

Probability: Benfica 3-1 Boavista

Given their respectable defensive record, we expect Boavista to put up some resistance at the Estadio da Luz. However, Benfica have made up ground this season which means that we are predicting a relatively comfortable win for the home side.
