Benfica settle now on the third position in the Primeira Liga standings. “Aguias” picked up 18 points with only five victories in nine away battles. The team’s offense looks quite confidently, having managed to score 17 goals while its defense also leaves favourable impressions, having conceded only seven goals. In the recent games conducted on the road Benfica have gained an easy triumph over Moreirense with 2:0 scoreline, swept away Tondela 5:1 and earned 0:0 draw against FC Porto.
It is very difficult to define the favourite of this pair as both rivals are on the same level now, sitting close to each other in the table. The previous head-to-head between the clubs was finished in 1:1 draw which means that the forthcoming clash will be equal. The hosts show powerful football at the home field while “Aguias” are not as strong as they used to be a few latest seasons.
Prediction for the match: Braga to win with +1.0 Asian handicap.
