Benfica to win the game at halftime and full-time

Benfica are the only team left in the league to have a 100% record after the first five matches. They have been quite excellent against Boavista when it comes to home matches. Benfica have picked up a win at half-time and full-time in seven out of the last eight games against Boavista. One can expect more of the same even if the visitors are unbeaten in the last four games. Boavista have largely come up against teams around them in the table during this run.

Total goals under 2.5

Boavista have been able to score in each of the last four matches – since the 3-0 beating at the hands of the Gil Vicente – to provide some worry for Benfica. However, the table leaders have been quite impeccable at the back with four clean sheets in the last five games.

Goals from both teams – no

Benfica have been imperious at the back in recent weeks. Tondela are the only team to have scored past Benfica in the last five matches. Despite having had a midweek Champions League away game and plenty of travels, Benfica will be in a confident mood to continue to run.
