Benfica vs Porto Predictions
There are only four rounds remaining in this year’s edition of Portuguese Primeira Liga and chances for anyone to overthrow Sporting Lisbon from 1st place are slim. We are getting big derby clash between Benfica and Porto this Thursday at Da Luz. Whoever wins the 2nd place will earn direct placement to UCL next season so the stakes are quite high.

Match Preview & Team News
It’s hard to say who’s been in better shape lately though. Both earned four victories in the last five domestic appearances. In terms of the odds, bookies have given the advantage to Benfica CF who are currently at 13/10 to earn victory against Dragons. That is not going to be an easy task though considering fact that Porto are undefeated for more than 25 duels in a row in this division. Read on our Primeira Liga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
There were a couple of interesting head to head clashes between these opponents in the recent past. This season started with Porto’s 2-0 victory against Benfica and winning the Super Cup. Sergio Oliveira was the MVP of that match with one goal and one assist for Diaz. The first divisional clash was played at Dragao on 15th January and full-time result was 1-1. Alex Grimaldo secured the lead for Benfica early one, while the final score was set by Moussa Marega. The most valuable player within Sergio Conceicao’s squad is Mehdi Tarami. This Iranian striker scored 13 goals and made seven assist in this Primeira Liga campaign. The Eagles have a lot of room for improvement in the back, keeping just one clean sheet in the last five appearances.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
With the exception of Super Cup game, five out of the last six head to head clashes between these eternal rivals ended with BTTS. Both teams to score is going to be our selection this time as well at 7/10 rate.
We don’t see Porto FC ending this long unbeaten run on Thursday night. Draw or away win double chance at 3/5 seems like big banker bet backed with high stake.
