Benfica Porto betting prediction


Preview

Analysis of Benfica

They come to this stage of the Taça de Portugal (Final) after having played in the previous rounds against: Famalicão, Rio Ave, Sporting Braga, Vizela and Cova Piedade. They come to this match after a draw against Vitória Setúbal by (1‑1). Benfica registers 5 wins and 1 draw in the last 6 matches for the Taça de Portugal.

They haven’t lost any of the last 6 matches for this competition. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 5 of the last 6 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 6 matches for this competition. In their matches there is a tendency for goals, since 40 of the last 47 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Benfica come to this game after a 2-1 home victory over Sporting, thus registering the third consecutive victory, all in the Portuguese championship: the team's goals were signed by Seferovic and Carlos Vinícius. It is important to remember that Benfica won this Portuguese Cup in the 2016/2017 season. In this match against FC Porto, coach Nélson Veríssimo should keep his team in 4-4-2, prioritizing the organization of his block and counterattacks, making the best use of the existing space in the defense of FC Porto. Midfielder Pizzi is Benfica's top scorer this season, with 30 goals scored. For this game the coach can not count on Grimaldo, Nuno Tavares and Taarabt, all due to injury.

Confirmed Lineup: O. Vlachodimos, Nuno Tavares, Rúben Dias, Jardel, André Almeida, Gabriel, F. Cervi, Pizzi, J. Weigl, Chiquinho, H. Seferović.
Coach: Bruno Lage.

Analysis of Porto

FC Porto arrive for this clash after a 2-1 defeat at Braga, putting an end to the six consecutive victories in the Portuguese championship: the only goal of the team was scored by Uribe. It should be noted that Porto won the last Portuguese Cup in 2010/2011. In this match against rival Benfica, coach Sérgio Conceição should not make any major changes in the tactical system, that is, keep the team in 4-4-2, benefiting the maintenance of ball possession and the attacks organized by the aisles: Corona is a player very fast and expert in transporting the ball to the attack. Tiquinho Soares is the top scorer of this team of the season, with 19 goals scored. For this match, the manager cannot count on Marcano, who is injured, and still has Luis Díaz and Mateus Uribe in doubt.

Confirmed Lineup: Diogo Costa, Wilson Manafá, C. Mbemba, Alex Telles, Pepe, Otávio, Danilo Pereira, M. Uribe, J. Corona, M. Marega, L. Díaz.
Coach: Sérgio Conceição.

Betting suggestion:

This game has a great tendency to be balanced, since Benfica are going through a positive moment in this end of the season and FC Porto aim to win the second most important title in Portugal. In this way, we believe that FC Porto dominate much of the match and create the best goal opportunities, however, with some difficulties in stopping the strong attacks of Benfica. It should be noted that both Porto and Benfica have several defensive gaps. Having said that and taking into account the importance of this game for both sides, risking in favor of a game with goals in both goals is a good option. This betting suggestion has expired...
