Match Preview & Team News

Section leaders Benfica return to domestic action after yet another Champions League failure as they travel to Ponta Delgada to take on 8th-placed Santa Clara in the 11th round of the competition on Saturday evening. The Eagles are two points clear off arch-rivals Porto at the top of the ladder with nine wins in the opening ten games. They boast by far the best defensive record in the league having allowed no more than three goals so far.

Bruno Lage’ s troops also have the best attacking record in Portugal, while the competition’s top scorer is their midfielder Pizzi who found the back of the net as many as seven times this term. Interestingly, Pizzi only came on from the bench to play the last 17 minutes of the clash against Lyon on Tuesday night. His presence was instantly felt as the midfielder delivered an assist for a consolation goal from another substitute Haris Seferovic.

Pizzi and Ruben Dias made the difference for the Eagles in the last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Rio Ave at Estadio da Luz. Benfica go into this on the back of four successive clean sheet wins in the domestic league. They should be able to keep things tight at the back against Santa Clara who have by no means been prolific in the final third so far in the season.

Nonetheless, Joao Henriques’ men were very tough to break down at the opposite end, especially in games played at Estadio de Sao Miguel where they allowed no more than three goals in five outings this term.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

The quality is on Benfica’s side and we will back the visitors to win to nil as the main betting option at the odds of 7/5.

Goals Market Prediction

The value is decent with the 1/1 odds offered for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick as we expect the hosts to park the bus on Saturday.
