Benfica vs Boavista – Free Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

Benfica continue to remain in an impressive position in all competitions after the 2-0 success over Club Brugge in the Champions League. Boavista did not have any midweek match and the team were held to a goalless draw by Casa Pia.

Joao Mario to score anytime

Joao Mario has been in exceptional form for Benfica and he has been able to hit his 17th goal of the campaign with a penalty against Club Brugge in the European game. After failing to score in the recent draw with Braga, the 30-year-old is back among the goals. He is a good pick to score anytime in the match after finding the back of the net in four out of the last five appearances. The Benfica vs Boavista odds see a lot of value in backing the winger to score anytime.

Total goals under 2.5

Even though Benfica have been on a splendid run of form over the last few weeks, this Benfica vs Boavista prediction has not witnessed a lot of big victories for the table leaders. Benfica’s victories have been much more close contests that have seen a steady set of performances. This upcoming match may also stay in line with the trend.

Both teams to score – yes

Benfica have been very hard to break down by opposition defences and they have only conceded one goal in the last five matches. Boavista should find this very hard to overcome, but they have also failed to score only ones in the recent five matches. The Benfica vs Boavista odds find value in backing goals at both ends.

Team News, Analysis, and Preview of Benfica vs Boavista Match

Benfica

Benfica are coming into the game after having picked up a big win over Club Brugge in the Champions League. This comes as a major relief for the team who were knocked out of the Portuguese cup by Braga. For the upcoming match, the Benfica vs Boavista lineups will be without Alexander Bah and Morato due to suspension.

All eyes will be on Joao Mario and Goncalo Ramos, who are scoring goals for fun in Benfica colours. Mario has been the more impressive of the two, not only leading the scoring lines but also helping with four assists. In the middle of the park, Safa Silva will have to be contained. The experienced creator has chipped in with two assists but his six goals have also been instrumental.

Boavista

There may be a number of significant changes from Boavista for the upcoming match. The Benfica – Boavista line-up will be without Vincent Sasso and Adalberto Penaranda due to injuries while Sebastián Perez and Rodrigo Abascal are missing due to suspension.

Boavista does not have the same number of stars in their ranks but in Yusupha Njie they have a player to boast about. The Gambian attacker has hit the back of the net eight times this season. He has scored four goals in his last five and has been the reason for their continental push and can pose problems to the Benfica back.
