Benfica vs Belenenses – Top Predictions and Betting Tips

Benfica suffered back-to-back setbacks with the latest being a 3-1 loss against Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. Darwin Nunez provided the consolation goal for Benfica, who had lost 3-2 to Sporting Braga during the weekend. Nunez was once again on the scoresheet along with Joao Mario. Belenenses picked up a first win in six games after beating Portimonense 2-0 at home. Goals from Alisson Safira and Pedro Nuno provided this crucial win, as Portimonense struggled to deal with Willyan’s early red card.

Clean sheet for Benfica

Benfica have registered just one clean sheet in the last five games. Just in the Primeira Liga, Benfica have not managed a clean sheet since March. Belenenses, though, might provide an end to this miserable run even if they have just picked up the first victory in almost 2 months.

Total goals over 2.5

Benfica have witnessed more than 2.5 goals in four out of the recent five league matches. The defensive performances of Benfica have not been satisfactory during this period, but goals from the likes of Darwin Nunez have been flowing steadily. Even though Belenenses have not scored in three out of the last five league matches, this game might end up being a high-scoring fixture.

Both teams to score – no

Belenenses have managed only one goal in the last three away games. They have not scored against Benfica in the last four competitive meetings. Even though Benfica have struggled for clean sheets the season, a game against the strugglers might just help in this case.

Benfica vs Belenenses: Primeira Liga Preview and Team News

Benfica

Benfica’s concentration will now shift back to the Primeira Liga as they are on the brink of exit from the Champions League. The hopes of finishing in the top two might have disappeared, but a strong finish would ensure good performance in the Champions League qualifiers. Rodrigo Pinho and Lucas Verissimo are the players unavailable due to injury.

Belenenses

Belenenses have been struggling to get out of the bottom four but the recent win over Portimonense will be a huge impetus. Belenenses have at least been able to get out of the bottom. Andrijia Lukovic is the only player who is a potential doubt for the game.
