Draw

Gil Vicente have had a week to prepare for this encounter and they will be keen to pick up back-to-back away wins over Benfica, who are struggling this season. After falling 12 points behind Porto in the league table, Benfica’s objective will be to finish in the top two, but Sporting CP have the psychological edge. Gil Vicente are unbeaten four games and they have jumped into the top five as a result. The visitors might be happy to take point from this game.

Total goals over 2.5

This match features a struggling Benfica outfit who have managed only two clean sheets in the last five games. Both the clean sheets have been against struggling opponents. Gil Vicente have averaged around 1.5 goals per game over the last six matches, but it is Benfica who hit the big numbers after managing 17 goals in the last six games. Even though this is largely down to the big wins over Famalicao and Maritimo, this match is likely to live up to the high standards.

Both teams to score – yes

Gil Vicente have scored in each Portuguese Primeira Liga match since 3-0 loss against Sporting Lisbon. Benfica’s struggle with regards to clean sheets is likely to ensure the high-scoring match where both teams end up scoring at least once.
