The odds presented here are always subject to change. One should check with the bookmaker before placing the bet. These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing. Ladbrokes are our recommended bookmaker for the big game.

Porto victory

Porto are still showing signs of trouble after almost dropping points against Vizela in the last match. However, the offence continues to get the team out of trouble and it is very likely that Benfica will have to face the front of the same despite playing at home. Porto have had a very good away record against Benfica in recent years with three wins in the last four away games.

Total goals over 2.5

This fixture has witnessed plenty of goals in recent meetings. The last two games between Porto and Benfica have provided over 2.5 goals. Benfica have Nunez on excellent form while Porto alone have managed 16 goals in the last six matches. Both these teams have been on a good scoring patch to expect goals out of this game.

Both teams to score – yes

There have been goals at both ends in four out of the last six games between Benfica and Porto. Apart from having players like Nunez, who are on top form, Benfica also have home advantage. Porto are unsurprisingly the third best offensive team in away games this season.

Benfica vs Porto: Match Preview and Team News

Benfica

Benfica are largely playing for pride in this fixture and they are also trying to get a first win over Porto since 2019. The last home league success for Benfica against their main title rival was in 2018. Benfica are without Lucas Veríssimo for this match while Rafa is rated as a doubt.

Porto

Porto will effectively be winning the title if they pick up a victory or even match the result of Sporting CP during the weekend. Even then, it is highly unlikely that the table leaders will throw away a six-point advantage in the remaining two games of the season. Porto are without Wilson Manafa for this match while Zaidu Sanusi is doubtful.
