Benfica to win the game

Sporting CP might have just picked up a 11 consecutive victory in all competitions, but many of these results have come at home. The team has played away from home in just four of these games. In recent years, Sporting CP have been unable to get away results against Benfica, who have four successive wins over this opponent at their home.

Total goals over 2.5

Apart from a goalless draw against La Liga giants Barcelona, there can be no doubts about Benfica’s scoring form which has been aided immensely by the likes of Nunez and Seferović being an excellent form. Sporting CP are also very good going forward and it is to be expected from the second placed team in the league.

BTTS – yes

Sporting CP have registered at least a goal in 11 consecutive matches across all competitions. Benfica are very good going forward with 17 goals in the last three domestic games. Even if the two teams have a strong defence, it is likely to struggle against offence of this quality and form.
