Benfica to Win to Nil

Betting on an outright Benfica win is the safest option, but the odds are too low and would only make sense in an Acca bet. With that in mind, we suggest betting on Benfica to win to nil since the odds on this bet are much better, while the prediction is still quite reasonable. Benfica is on a six-game winning streak in which they didn’t concede. In addition to this, the last five h2h duels between these two teams have ended in Benfica wins with Gil Vicente failing to score.

Benfica to Win Both Halves

Since Benfica is in such great form, it is entirely expected to see them win in both halves, especially if they don’t concede a goal as we expect. Benfica has kept a clean sheet in 63% of their games, while they have scored in both halves in 31% of home games. Meanwhile, Gil Vicente has failed to score in 31% of away games, while they have conceded a goal in both halves in 23% of away games.

Haris Seferovic to Score Anytime

The Swiss international is the team’s top scorer with 16 goals this season, while he is also sharing the top spot in the entire league. This game would be a perfect opportunity for the striker to score and improve his record, which could help him win the top-scorer award in the Primeira Liga. Furthermore, Seferovic has scored 7 goals in the last 5 games for Benfica, so he is in great form.

Benfica vs Gil Vicente preview: An easy win for the Eagles?

While it is obvious that Benfica is the absolute favourite in this game, Gil Vicente is in solid form and could prove to be a tough nut to crack. So, let’s take a closer look at these teams.

Benfica

Despite the amazing season by Sporting who is undefeated in the league, Benfica still has some hopes of winning the title since they are nine points behind with eight games to go. The team is in great form, with six straight wins in the league in which they also didn’t concede a single goal. The Lisbon team is mostly healthy, with only Almeida and Araujo unable to play in the upcoming match due to injuries.

Gil Vicente

Although Gil Vicente is currently 10th in the Portuguese league, they are just 4 points away from the relegation zone, which means that they are not completely safe yet. However, they have reasons to be optimistic since they’ve won three of their last five games in the league and seem to be in good form. They also have a clean bill of health and will be able to field a complete team against Benfica on Saturday.
