Benfica to win both halves

Benfica might be tired by the midweek Champions League exertions, but the club will also be on a high after having produced a remarkable victory. Even though Estoril come on the back of a first victory in four league outings, it is unlikely that they would follow that up with a success of Benfica. After all, Benfica have picked up a victory at half-time and full-time in seven out of the last nine games against Estoril.

Total goals under 2.5

Benfica have seen their goals dry up over the last few weeks. Since scoring three against Vitoria Guimaraes a few weeks ago, Benfica have been unable to get past 2.5 goals on their own. Perhaps, the big disappointment would be the lack of efforts from Estoril.

Both teams to score – no

Estoril have not scored in four out of the last five away matches, which continues to be a major Achilles heel for the team. Despite scoring two against Portimonense, Estoril may not come up with any goals in this match.
