Betting prediction:

Going through a terrible moment of performance, Benfica goes to this match forced to return to the victories, reason why a match is foreseen where the “eagles” try to dominate from beginning to end, right from the start and initiative. Famalicão, on the other hand, should act more closed and retreated on the pitch, trying to avoid conceding goals as much as possible. Due to the lack of fluidity in the football presented by the reds, in a match where the Minho will give everything to score, a somewhat monotonous match is expectable and without many occasions of goal in the overall calculation.

Match preview

Benfica and Famalicão face at Estádio do Sport Lisboa and Benfica, in a match for the 18th round of the Primeira Liga. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 18‑09‑2020, Benfica got an away win by (1‑5). The head‑to‑head history of the last 3 years favours the home team, since in the last 5 matches they won 3 and tied 2. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 4th and 17th of the league table, it’s also a match between the 4th best team in home matches and the 11th best in away matches.

Analysis of Benfica

After 10 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses, the home team is in the 4th position, havinf won 34 points so far. In the last match, they have tied at home against Vitória SC by (0‑0), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑0) an away match against Sporting CP. This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since they have won 14 points in away matches, with 14 goals scored and 8 conceded, against 19 points won at their stadium, with 16 goals scored and 8 conceded. For the league, Benfica won 20 points out of 27 possible points, after 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 9 home matches.

They haven’t lost any of the last 5 home matches for this competition. The most recurrent result at half‑time in their home league matches was the 1‑0 (4 out of 9 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 8 of the last 9 matches for this competition have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 5 times, but have turned the score around in 2.

Benfica comes for this fixture after practically saying “goodbye” to the possibility of regaining the title of national champion, at a very early stage of the season. At the start of the 18thround of the Liga NOS, the team led by Jorge Jesus appears in the 4thposition of the league table, with the same 34 points from Paços de Ferreira, already 11 away from Sporting’s leadership. Last Friday, Benfica reached the fourth consecutive match without winning for the championship, returning to be blank after the defeat with Sporting (1-0, away). In the reception to Vitória de Guimarães, the reds didn’t go beyond 0-0, despite having been the team that most sought to win in the 90 minutes.

Confirmed Lineup: Odysseas Vlachodimos, Gilberto, Jan Vertonghen, Álex Grimaldo, Nicolás Otamendi, Franco Cervi, Adel Taarabt, Julian Weigl, Everton, Haris Seferović, Darwin Nuñez.
Coach: Jorge Jesus.

Analysis of Famalicão

The away team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 14 points won, after 3 wins, 5 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Nacional, by (2‑1). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Moreirense, by (0‑2). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 8 points in away matches and 6 at their stadium, with 9 goals scored and 19 conceded at home, against 8 goals scored and 11 conceded in away matches. In the last 8 away league matches Famalicão has a record of 2 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses, so they have won 8 points out of 24 possible. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (4 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that has had a hard time trying to score first. They have opened up the score in only 3 of the last 17 matches for the Primeira Liga, they have reached half‑time in front in 2 of those 3 matches and have held on to the lead in 1. In 17 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 13 times and have only turned the score around in 2. In the last 17 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 9 of their 23 goals between minutes (76’‑90′).

The Famalicão team finished the first round of the championship with a performance clearly insufficient for their maintenance ambitions and reaches this 18thround to occupy the 17thand penultimate place in the general classification table, with the same 14 points from the Boavista, just one above Farense. Last Thursday, the Famalicense team debuted under the technical command of Jorge Silas, but far from the desired way. In the reception for Moreirense, Famalicão was defeated (0-2), in a match where objectivity and creativity were lacking in the levels of ball possession with which they ended. In this way, the Minho group takes three consecutive defeats before visiting Luz.

Confirmed Lineup: Luiz Lúcio Reis Júnior, Rúben Vinagre, Diogo Queirós, Srđan Babić, Patrick, Pêpê, Heriberto Tavares, Manuel Ugarte Ribeiro, Edwin Herrera, Gil Dias, Ivo Rodrigues.
Coach: João Pedro Sousa.
