Famalicao vs Benfica Match Preview

Benfica cannot afford another loss in the league, as FC Porto has already beaten them to the first place in the table. Famalicao will have a bigger fish to fry at home despite their ground advantage.

Famalicao vs Benfica Match preview

After three winless games in their schedule, Famalicao has finally won a game. Their 0-1 win on the road against Tondela last time out was the second win within the recent five fixtures.

Apart from the double win at home against FC Porto and Sporting, the host has won none of their last nine home matches in the league schedule.

Since the promoted side doesn't have a stable form at home, Benfica will try to use it to their advantage as they have lost only one of their recent five away games in the schedule.

The Eagles will visit after a 3-1 win at home against Boavista in their previous encounter in the campaign, and four of their last five matches have seen both teams score.

The reigning champions will look to bridge the gap between them and the current table toppers, as the promoted sides will be less than a threat for the traveling side in the game.

They have met only thrice overall since 2019.

Benfica is unbeaten in all their clashes, scoring 8 goals.

Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at Famalicao.

Both teams have scored in two of the three fixtures.

Famalicao vs Benfica Prediction

Famalicao will have a hard time keeping the visitors at bay. The Eagles will be eager to snatch the lead in the game and might settle defensive after a decent lead without taking much risk.

The home ground advantage will not be valid as their recent home matches have finished without success in the game. Besides, the Eagles have a strong away form which aids them in the encounter and all their meetings with the host have ended in their favor only.

The away win with 1.60 odds for the full-time will be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Besides, the tip for under 3.5 goals at 1.40 odds will also be a suitable option as we cannot expect a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes.
