Rafa to come up with a goal anytime

Rafa has been in excellent form for Benfica with a goal in each of the last four appearances in all competitions. Despite playing in four games over the last fortnight, it is very much expected that the 29-year-old will be part of the starting line-up. His excellent form makes him a great pick to back for a goal anytime.

Total goals over 2.5

Both teams to score – yes

Estoril might not have picked up any wins in the last five competitive outings against Benfica but they have been able to score a goal in four of these matches. Despite dominating the league, Benfica have been able to register only two clean sheets in the last five games.
