Victory in both halves for Benfica

Benfica have had a polarising week, as they lost a two-goal lead against Boavista but the team produced a comeback twice in the game against Ajax. After having ended the midweek on a positive note, Benfica will look to continue their wonderful streak against Vitoria Guimaraes. Benfica have won four out of the last six meetings against this club. Even though the most recent game produced a 3-3 thriller back in October, this game is likely to go in favour of the hosts.

Total goals over 2.5

Benfica have scored three goals in three consecutive games against Vitoria Guimaraes, who have also managed five goals in this period. After having witnessed over 2.5 goals in five consecutive games, Benfica will expect a big game once again. Even Vitoria Guimaraes have not been defensively solid to produce a dull match.

Both teams to score – yes

Vitoria Guimaraes have not scored in just two of the last 10 matches in all competitions. This does not sound good for a Benfica defence that has gone without a clean sheet in seven consecutive games. The reverse fixture also produced a stunning 3-3 draw.

Nelson Verissimo has so far been powerless to prevent Benfica from dropping further in the race with Porto and Sporting CP. Benfica are a whopping six points behind Sporting CP. Verissimo also has a string of injury problems with Rodrigo Pinho, Lucas Veríssimo, and Haris Seferovic unavailable for the team. Nicolás Otamendi and Julian Weigl are suspended for the match, while André Almeida’s participation remains in doubt.

Vitoria Guimaraes

Vitoria Guimaraes are very likely to come back to their usual 4-3-3 formation after having experimented with the 4-4-2 formation in the last match. Depending on the availability of Andre Almeida, there could be no starting spot for Bruno Duarte.
