- Both teams have scored in five of the last seven competitive and non-competitive meetings between these two clubs
- Benfica have won six of the pair’s last seven encounters
- Both teams have scored in each of Farense’s last four matches and each of Benfica’s last three matches
Benfica to do Just Enough to Win
Farense secured a point away at Vitoria Guimaraes last time out, courtesy of a 2-2 final scoreline. Benfica could only manage a 1-1 draw with Moreirense in their last league game and then drew by the same scoreline against Arsenal in their midweek Europa League tie.
The hosts haven’t fared well against Benfica in the past, losing six of their last seven meetings in all competitions. However, both teams have found the back of the bet in five of those matches and the way Benfica have been defending of late will give Farense belief that they can score on Sunday.
Both teams have scored in each of Farense’s last four outings, so while the hosts don’t look strong at the back they have been creating chances at the other end of the pitch. Benfica’s last three outings have all ended with both teams scoring, which only adds further weight to Farense’s chances of finding the back of the net this weekend.
We’re confident that both teams will score on Sunday and have predicted a narrow 2-1 win for visiting Benfica. While Benfica have not been at their very best in recent weeks, the visitors should have more than enough to pitch a 2-1 win this weekend, despite having had less time to prepare for the game.
