A Battle of Aspirations and Survival

Key Stats
– Angel Di Maria is leading Benfica’s charge with three goals this season.
– Vizela have managed to find the back of the net in three out of their four league outings.
– Benfica, showing their offensive strength, have consistently netted twice in their last five matches.

Saturday evening sets the stage for a fascinating face-off between Benfica, chasing their fourth consecutive Primeira Liga triumph, and Vizela, a team looking to distance themselves from the relegation chatter. While the previous season’s champions, Benfica, find themselves in the fourth spot, Vizela are currently positioned 12th. This, however, only tells a fraction of the story.

Benfica’s Redemption Arc:
Following an unexpected setback against Boavista at the season’s inception, Benfica are in redemption mode. The stats testify to their resurgence; a solid nine goals during their three-match winning spree against top opponents Estrela, Gil Vicente, and Vitoria Guimaraes. The cherry on top? Their decisive 4-0 thrashing of Vitoria ahead of the international hiatus.

Players have equally shared the responsibility of finding the back of the net, with Angel Di Maria, the veteran maestro, being a standout contributor with three goals. With rival contenders dropping crucial points, Benfica, now just a whisper away from the summit, are eyeing the weekend to solidify their ascent.

Vizela’s Steady Progress:
For Vizela, their journey so far has been about proving their mettle. Their commendable performance, although resulting in a narrow 3-2 loss against Sporting Lisbon, underscores their potential. The team’s persistence bore fruit when Matheus Pereira’s goal against Gil Vicente saw them clinch a much-needed win, pushing them up the ladder and reducing the number of winless teams in the Primeira Liga. Pablo Villar, Vizela’s manager, however, understands that upcoming fixtures will test his team’s mettle, especially considering their past record against Portugal’s football elites.

Form Guide and Tactical Insights:
Examining recent form provides an insight into both teams’ tactical setups. Vizela have shown a mixed bag of results, with their recent win potentially being a turning point. Villar’s emphasis on team continuity is evident, with eight players consistently making the starting lineup. However, if defensive solidity becomes the focal point, Orest Lebedenko might feature in a more withdrawn role on the left.

In contrast, Benfica’s form showcases their dominance. Riding high on their recent victories, Schmidt, their tactician, might field an unchanged starting eleven, provided there aren’t any post-international break injuries. Players like David Neres and Arthur Cabral, despite their prowess, might still begin from the bench.

Key Players and BettingTips4You Expert Ratings:
For Vizela, Nuno Moreira and Samu, both with a commendable BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.40, will be instrumental. Meanwhile, for Benfica, Rafa Silva, with an impressive rating of 8.28, followed by Di Maria at 7.95, will be the ones to watch.


  1. Outcome Prediction:
    Given the form, a ‘both teams to score’ prediction is tempting. Vizela, in their recent outings, have showcased their attacking prowess, scoring in three out of their four games. However, Benfica, with their consistent two goals per match in their last five outings, indicates their offensive strength. Thus, a Benfica win with both teams scoring seems plausible.
  2. Correct Score Prediction:
    Keeping the above stats in mind, a 3-1 victory in favour of Benfica can be predicted.
  3. Goalscorer Prediction:
    Angel Di Maria, having found the net thrice already, is our pick for the player likely to score during the match. Given his current form, he might just be the one to break the deadlock.
