Pacos Ferreira take on the visitors Benfica in the round 20 match of Liga Portugal. The match will be played on Thursday, January 26th at Estádio da Capital do Móvel (Paços de Ferreira).
Pacos Ferreira could not win at all for a long time this season. The "Beavers" sometimes please their fans, either reaching the cup final, or, 10 years ago, managing to sensationally take the "League Champion" 3rd place (although in the qualification of the main European Cup of the Portuguese were knocked out). It didn’t work out to repeat that, to win the “bronze” again, but the 5th place taken in 2021/2022 was a pretty good denouement. Especially against the backdrop of a new failure. Suffice it to say that in the first 15 meetings there were only 3 points, due to draws, and only on January 14th it was unexpectedly possible to draw up a 1-0 victory on the Rio Ave field. There were chances to cling to success with Braga at home, but the Gunners took the final 1-2 with a goal on the 90+8 minute.

Benfica this season shows mirror statistics to Pacos. The "Eagles" a few years can not take serious trophies. Moreover, in the last season there was a 3rd place in Primeira. As a result, in the summer, they expectedly changed their mentor, relying on a promising German, Roger Schmidt. The one in Lisbon began to give results without buildup. With him again, the Portuguese made it to the playoffs of the Champions League. And in the domestic arena, they started with a long unbeaten streak. And only on New Year's Eve, the grandee involuntarily “congratulated” the fans, losing to Braga 0-3 and reducing the gap from his pursuers. But then just as solidly, 3-0, they defeated Santa Clara.
In August, having finished 3-2 at home, Benfica opened their 2nd ten consecutive victories in a head-to-head game against Pacos de Ferreira. There will be no intrigue here - the visitors from Lisbon are much stronger. We recommend betting on Benfica with a handicap of "-2 goals".
Prediction for the match: Benfica to win with -2.0 handicap.
