Darwin Nunez to score anytime

Total goals over 3.5

Benfica have been able to get over 2.5 goals in three out of the last five games against Pacos Ferreira. Before the two games against Porto, the team came into the match with over 2.5 goals scored in three consecutive games.

Both teams to score – yes

Pacos Ferreira come into the game with goals in three out of the last four away matches. The team is also on a confident run after managing back-to-back wins. Benfica were completely exposed by Porto’s offence but Pacos Ferreira may not be able to offer the same threat. Still, Benfica have not been completely convincing at the back in recent games.

Benfica vs Pacos Ferreira: Match Preview and Team News

Benfica

The title hopes are effectively over for Benfica after falling seven points behind Porto and Sporting Lisbon in the league table.

Benfica will be without Rodrigo Pinho, Nemanja Radonjic, Lucas Veríssimo, Pizzi, Roman Yaremchuk, Soualiho Meité, andAndré Almeida due to injuries.

Pacos Ferreira

Pacos Ferreira have made a sizable improvement in their league standings and their overall confidence levels with the back-to-back wins. This is the first time Pacos Ferreira are winning back-to-back games since August. The club continued to remain without players like Luis Carlos due to suspension, while Jorge Silva is doubtful. João Vigário and Jordi are out injured for the match.
