Benfica vs Estoril : tonight at 20:15, the leader of the Portuguese championship, Benfica, will receive “Estadio da Luz” Estoril’s visit, where I expect a match in which the goals will come in high number.
Benfica is undoubtedly the favorite of this fight, as betting agencies give it as much value to its opponent, also benefiting from the advantage of its own ground, where supporters could play a very important role.
This team makes a very good season, being at the top of the Portuguese Championship, being three points from Porto FC, second place. In the 30 stages so far, Rui Vitoria team has gained 72 points, managing 22 wins and 6 draws, suffered 2 defeats, in these games scored 62 goals, receiving 15.
It should be noted that Benfica has very good home games this season, losing only once to “Estadio da Luz”, against Napoli.
Estoril on the other side is ranked second in the bookmakers, a fact that does not surprise anyone, but still faces the Portuguese championship leader, being disadvantaged by the fact that it will evolve away on a field that guests rarely climb .
“The Canaries” make a modest season, currently at the bottom of the leaderboard, ranked 14th, eigh points from the relegation zone. Until now, Pedro Emanuel’s team has gathered 31 points in 30 stages, with 8 wins and 7 draws, suffering 15 defeats in these games scoring 28 goals, receiving eight more.
Estoril is going through a fairly good period, in the last seven official games suffer a single defeat, on his own land against the Nacional Madeira.
Judging by the difference in value, but also after the evolutions of this season, Benfica will most likely will win, but the bookmakers offer small odds for the success of the hosts, which is why I will bet on goals.
