Benfica to Win

Benfica has not lost in their last 10 away fixtures, winning the last seven in succession. Moreirense record on the other hand is nothing to write home about. They have lost their last three fixtures and the arrival of Benfica signals a fourth is on the cards.

Under 2.5 Goals

The last three fixtures involving Moreirense has finished with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline. They will surely look to baton down the gates against Benfica, who have struggled in making the most of their time afforded to them in the opposition’s third. The Eagles last three fixtures ended with less than three goals, the same trajectory of results witnessed in the H2H battles between these sides.

Both Teams to Score: No

After being shut out in their previous two outings, Penafiel finally allowed Moreirense to end their scoring duck in the Portuguese League Cup. Scoring against Benfica will be a tougher task, who come in this fixture with clean sheets in two of their last three outings. With the Owls having trouble scoring and the Eagles impressing at the back, we anticipate only one side getting on the scoreboard.

Moreirense vs Benfica Fixture Preview

Moreirense FC

Joao Henriques impressed with an eighth-place finish with Moreirense. The marker is on their back as their rivals look to bring them down in the current campaign. They are already out of the League Cup which should allow more focus on the Primeira Liga as a consequence. However, the manner in which they got out is embarrassing. Their attacking efficiency was highlighted in the fixture and they need to address that early in the season.

SL Benfica

After dominating the Primeira Liga for the majority of 2010s, Benfica seems to be slowly getting out of the picture. Their third-place finish was their worst since the 2012/13 season and the onus will be on Jorge Jesus to address this. Now in his third stint with the Eagles, the pressure is greater to succeed. Fortunately for Jesus, Benfica has a squadron of players, such as Haris Seferovic and Gian-Luca Waldschmidt who can realize their ambitions.
